Rustic Treasure was inspired by an old car that had seen better days in the ghost town of Silver City, Idaho. I was inspired by the combination of rust colors, greens, and browns. Silver City is nestled in the Owyhee Mountains near the Oregon border. It used to be a booming silver mining town and had several structures inside the town limits. There are a few that are still standing today, even a few residents that still live there 3/4ths of the year, but for the most part it’s tourist attraction in the summer time.

Please note if a color is listed as a ‘backorder’ option, it will be dyed to order and may take up to a week to ship.
Please note that color variations may occur from skein to skein as a result of hand dyeing. I have matched the colors in the photo as close as real life as possible however some differences may be noticed from monitor to monitor. Please also order as many sets as you need for your project as color variation may happen one dye lot to the next.
