I'm an Underwater Thing - Port DK

Regular price $35.00

Tax included.

I guess I'm an Underwater thing, but I guess I can't take it personally.

Underwater Thing is a bright but murky saturated greenish goldy grellow, with washes of greys and brass.

These skeins are all from the same batch, but due to the number of processes involved, they are all slightly different. We recommend alternating skeins on larger items if a more even result is desired.

(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!)

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.)
