I've been working on this bloody colour for over three years. If you've come to yarn markets, you will have seen versions of it in the seconds bucket every time.
It was never brown enough, never saturated enough, never golden enough. Or it bled like a bastard.
But I've finally cracked it, and ochre that I'm fairly ok with. (Standards are high).
Pequod is a rich ochre, with occasional greener and warmer undertones. It looks just fab with almost anything.
(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!)
Shiny and silky, starboard is a single ply yarn, perfect for luxurious accessories. (Starboard may look a little kinky in the skein, rest assured it lies flat and smooth when knitted up!)
Fibre content: 70% superwash merino / 30% silk
Yardage: 400 metres / 438 yards
Recommended knitting needle size: 2.25 – 4.00 mm for garments and accessories
Wash carefully by hand in cool water with a few drops of clear unscented dish washing 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!
