"Anchor is so dark in fact, that it looks black in rod form and in plain spacers. It's even pretty dark when encased in clear. So to lighten it up a bit, I paired it with Effetre Periwinkle, a light cornflower blue that is my go-to for layering with super dark blue colors. This pair makes a really nice layering team - especially in melted-in designs, and as encased stringer." Read more at Kandice's blog.

"Anchor is very saturated and I think it probably fulfills its potential best when layered over other colours. This allows its beautiful deep marine blue to shine through." Read more of Laura's testing.
