Yarn Ahoy!!!

SECOND Rare and Exotic Beast: Dark Sapphire - Starboard

Regular price $27.00

Tax included.

SECOND This OOAK colour is a saturated dark sapphire blue with charcoal glazing.

I'm working with new dyes and the blue is proving a little fickle. The rinse water is not as crystal clear as I'd like, which is whyfore the second. If you follow the washing instructions below it will be perfectly useable.

(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!)
