Think those weird ol' sunsets that reflect on water, with a Portuguese Man o'War thrown in the mix. Shanty is a hotchpotch of purples, blues, browns and greys. These skeins have lots of layers - each is different. We strongly recommend alternating if you desire a more even result.
Shanty on Port is very different from other bases - it's washy and greyed and much less shouty.
Port is a smooth high-twist four ply construction. It’s great for garments and accessories. Port gets extra soft and squashy after it’s had a bath.

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!
