Having been born and raised in the Pittsburgh area, I've always had a deep fascination with US industrial history, but especially the that of Pittsburgh and its surrounding towns. Once thriving centers of steel production, many Pittsburgh area steel towns faded as the industry left. Ride through any of these towns and the surrounding countryside now, and you'll see plenty of remnants of that bygone steel era. Rusted leftovers of mill sites, stone coke ovens, unused railroad tracks. It all tells parts of the tale.

American Rust, with its faded blues, rusty reds, and pale grays, is my personal tribute to this heritage that is so close to me, to those who sweated in those dirty jobs, and to the memory of the role that the steel industry played in the growth of our county.

Shown in Bounce, we are currently offering pre-orders for this colorway on the following bases:

Bounce, fingering weight, 80/20 SW Merino/Nylon, 400 yards
Bedazzled, fingering weight, 75/20/5, SW Merino/Nylon/Stellina, 436 yards
Traveler, sport weight, 80/20 SW Merino/Nylon, 328 yards

Recommended care: Though these are superwash wools and can be machine washed, we recommend hand washing in cool water and then air dry flat.

All of our yarns and fibers are individually hand-dyed using professional grade acid dyes. Colorway names are consistent between yarns/fibers dyed with the same dye colors, however color strengths can (and likely will) vary between skeins and between different bases.

We make every effort to assure the colors in our photos are as accurate as possible, but please note that colors can vary from monitor to monitor.
