…Then we passed through the Arthur Kill, the industrial waterway at the back of Staten Island. And we stopped for a short while, as we always do, at the graveyard of ships.
Arthur Kill was first made for a NY friend – deepest inky navy blue, leaning slightly towards indigo. These skeins are more variegated than standard batches.
Port DK is smooth and plump – a high-twist four ply construction. It’s great for garments and accessories, and showcasing cables! Port DK gets extra soft and squashy after it has had a bath. DHY recommends swatching, and alternating skeins when knitting a larger item. (Colour may vary from skein to skein, even in the same batch.)
Fibre content: 100% superwash merino

Wash carefully by hand in cold water with a few drops of clear unscented dishwashing liquid (if needed). Dry flat in shade.
I try hard to take photos that accurately represent the colour of the yarn, but please note that screens all show colour a little differently. If you have questions about colours, please ask, and I will do my best to describe them for you!
