The Octavius is a beautiful subtle greyed lilac, with washes of greyed blue and pink, - pale with subtle tonal variegation. If you put it with bright colours it will be demure and behave a bit like a grubby grey. By itself or with lighter colours, the purple tones will be more apparent.
Port DK is smooth and plump – a high-twist four ply construction. It’s great for garments and accessories, and showcasing cables! Port DK gets extra soft and squashy after it has had a bath. DHY recommends swatching, and alternating skeins when knitting a larger item. (Colour may vary from skein to skein, even in the same batch.)
Fibre content: 100% superwash merino
Yardage: 228 metres / 250 yards

Wash carefully by hand in cold water with a few drops of clear unscented dishwashing 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!
