Antique Shanty - Singles Special

Regular price $35.00

Tax included.

Think those weird ol' sunsets that reflect on water, with a Portuguese Man o'War thrown in the mix. Shanty is a hotchpotch of tans, blues, browns and greys. These skeins have lots of layers - each is different. We strongly recommend alternating if you desire a more even result.

This version is more brown-blue toned and less purply.

 

(This is a very saturated colourway. I have washed it and the rinse water is clear. If you are planning to knit this with a light colour, I would recommend knitting a small test swatch with all the colours you're using, and wash and block in the usual way. Cold water and a couple of drops of dishwashing liquid is a good bet!)

-------

Matt and squashy, this is a singles spun yarn, that knits at a 4ply gauge. It's perfect for accessories and garments (not socks!!). (This base may look a little kinky in the skein, rest assured it lies flat and smooth when knitted up!)
