Rustic Silk Traveler is a Silk / Merino blend that combines warm-buttery softness with a radience and luminosity that can display the intense, vibrant color and occasional iridescence of an Amazonian beetle as easily as the sublte shades of a seashell. I love how it takes color and then returns it holding back nothing. There’s something both ironic and captivating about the nature of a rustic high-twist single when it’s made with fibers as luxurious as these, without plies to complicate the visual field. Rustic Silk Traveler is a robust, impeccably crafted yarn, and it comes in colors you’ll savor.
Full skeins are presented in up to 60″ / 152 cm twisted hanks, or center pull cakes – as you wish. Please select your preference from the boxed choices in the order area above, and we’ll be happy to send that to you. It’s also presented in quarter and mini skeins.
If your project calls for more than we have in stock, please write to us. We would be glad to dye some more especially for you.
Wherever you are in the world, you pay shipping only on the first skein; additional skeins and bobbins ship free.
If you use Ravelry, we’re Dave (Dave-B) and son Will (BrWhatsit), and we invite you to check out our Rav group. It’s called Meadowcroft Dyeworks. Also for fellow Ravelers; if you display your stash there, and you buy some of our yarns, you’re welcome to use any of our photos if you wish.
From a monitor that’s calibrated monthly, to quality photo lighting & camera equipment, and the best editing practices we know of, we put a lot of effort & time into reproducing the color of our yarns accurately in these photographs. We know, though, that monitors can vary, and you may not see the color with the accuracy we’re aiming. That’s part why we make returns easy.
We recommend hand washing in cool water with mild soap and laying flat to dry. You may also machine wash on the gentle cycle, but the life of the garment may be reduced. Please do not use a mechanical dryer.
