The double Octavius is a beautiful subtle greyed lilac, with washes of greyed blue, pink, and sand - pale with subtle tonal variegation. If you put it with bright colours it will be demure and behave a bit like a grubby purpler grey. By itself or with lighter colours, the complexity of the colourway will be more apparent.
These skeins are all from the same batch - but due to the number of processes they are all quite different. I recommend alternating skeins if you desire a more 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.

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!
