Did you mean Silk merchant?

The silk trader runs a store in Al Kharid. He sells silk for 3 coins, but if the player haggles with him, he will lower the price to two coins. Silk cannot be sold to the Al Kharid General Store. It can however, be sold to the Silk merchant for good profit.

The silk trader cannot be considered a shop owner, because the shop interface is not used. Purchasing silk from the trader produces a time consuming dialogue progression.


This article on a non-player character has an associated dialogue page.

Trivia Edit

  • Early in the game, the price was modified depending on the player's influence, a system removed from RuneScape Classic which was comparable to its replacement, Quest Points.
  • When the player successfully haggles with the trader he says that they are probably just going to sell the silk in Varrock for profit.
  • You cannot sell silk to the nearby general store. This is likely due to the proximity of the trader to the store.
