The Captain's got his boots on - Port

Regular price $35.00

Tax included.

The Captain's got his boots on and he's heading out the door.... leaving his lady alone thinking he don't love me no more... (Laura Marling)

THIS BATCH is more variegated than usual!

Captain's boots is a mid-dark greyed khaki/deep forest, the colour of rotten seaweed and the slow fading of love. It's a semi-solid with tonal variegation.

These are all from the same batch - due to the number of processes, there will be differences between skeins, so we strongly recommend alternating for an even result!


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.
