Mrs. Crosby Steamer Trunk Yarn - Barn Swallow Reviews

Mrs. Crosby Steamer Trunk Yarn - Barn Swallow
Barn Swallow shown $19.00

When Mrs. Crosby wants crisp, perfectly defined cables, she wastes no time fiddling with other yarns. Instead she dreams up the perfect yarn herself. Behold Steamer Trunk, a high-twist worsted weight yarn perfectly suited to projects in need of structural hold and definition. A sturdy work-horse of a yarn, Steamer Trunk is 100% superwash merino with a springy quality that is sure to keep your finished projects looking like new for years to come.

Newly-wound yarn is rather like our own, dear planet. So much potential in such a small ball. - Mrs. Crosby

Lovely Yarn! 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
This is beautiful yarn. I knit a hat with it. The stitch definition is great, and it's not itchy at all. Lovely color!

Review Of Mrs. Crosby Steamer Trunk Yarn 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
This yarn has a tight very consistent twist. I used my skeins to crochet 3 hats and did not have ONE snag or fray. Also, there were NO KNOTS in any of the skeins hooray. This would be a great yarn for beginning crocheters because of the great stitch definition. But, experienced crocheters will also appreciate the fine qualties of this yarn, as well. And, unlike many super-wash wool yarns, this one didn't have a funny odor. I will be purchasing this yarn again!
