Looks like Noro Kureyon (http://yarn.com/webs/0/0/0/0-1001-1294-1323/0/0/1229/) to me. If I had to guess...color #95.

Do not hesitate to 'manipulate' the color sequences when using NORO yarn.
If one color sequence is just toooo much in length...END IT by cutting it out...and pick up at the next color sequence. Use the 'cut out/removed' yarn for the buttonhole bands, or the collar. Or, use it later in an afghan project!
I use the splice-moisten-felt 'joining' method when using NORO, and most all wools. Impossible to detect the join. Amy Finlay calls it the Felted Join under Basic Techniques. She shows it for SAME COLOR YARN join, but it works for NORO too. The felted join sure is nice when you have to frog a project or section!
