I am delighted to have been asked to join the blog tour for a new yarn by Galler Yarns. The yarn is Inca-Eco 100% organic cotton and is available in 15 pretty shades! I chose a really pretty shade of pink called Blossom which I love!
Inca-Eco is imported from Peru and is a slight thick and thin yarn. The yarn was easy to wind and did not become all tangled like some yarns do. I love the fact that it is dyed with "low-impact, environmentally-friendly dyes". The skein is a generous 140 yards and 3-1/2 ounces and that is definitely enough for a small project! It is available in Ecru, Butter, Sage, Blue Stone, Blossom, Rose, Lavender, Aloe, Aqua, Denim, Espresso, Wine, Raspberry, Navy, Black.
Inca-Eco is so soft and easy to crochet with. It slides easily through your hands and fingers, which can make for faster and more comfortable crocheting. I design a lot of newborn photography props and this yarn would be ideal for this kind of crochet item for babies, as it is not only very soft, but also organic!
Inca-Eco would make wonderful wearables and accessories, so I chose to create a slouchy beret with it for my daughter. She loves this color pink! The crochet fabric has a beautiful drape, especially when crocheting with a larger hook. I used an N (9mm) crochet hook for the sample beret. I hope to be able to show you the finished beret in another post.
