Knit One Crochet Too Seda Rustica

Knit One Crochet Too Seda Rustica is an uncommon blend of delicious, drapey silk and downy-soft baby llama. This worsted weight yarn has a nubbly texture with some shine to it. Seda Rustica is woolen-spun: the fibers are carded before spinning, so they fluff up a bit in the strand. This makes for lots of loft, warmer garments, and also a bit of fuzzy texture. Truly one of a kind, Seda Rustica is sumptuously soft. Made in Argentina.

            I have made a hooded scarf with pockets for your hands. My hands did get tired after knitting for a while. The color selection is good.

                  this yarn cannot withstand even slight pulling, it tears into pieces and I spent too much time tying knots, I would not use this yarn again.

                  • Doubled W Stronger Yarn

                  Comments about Knit One Crochet Too Seda Rustica:

                  I purchased four skeins of this, with plans for an over-sized drapey cowl. It does have a pleasing "rustic" texture, but also seems to be made up of the left-over short-staple leavings of poor quality silk and baby llama. The yarn has a large number of knots in every skein (varies by skein), and the worst skein (Amethyst dye lot 35567) was so weak that I trouble winding it off the skein - it broke every couple of feet. Very disappointing. It could be saved by using it doubled with a stronger silk yarn, but why bother when there are so many nice yarns out there? I was very disappointed.

                    using it for a long A-line vest. The drape and hand of this yarn is gorgeous.

                    • Rustic Look And Feel

                    Cons

                    • No Resilience

                    Best Uses

                      Comments about Knit One Crochet Too Seda Rustica:

                      True to its name, it has a great rustic feel, like raw silk. However, it has no resilience and would require a special pattern, perhaps a light jacket using double stranded or combined with another resilient yarn for a scarf. I found it too wimpy for a scarf single stranded. When I finished my scarf project and was tying off, the remaining yarn simply came apart as I gave it a gentle tug. This would not be good for a fringe on a scarf, as people tend to 'play' with fringes.
