Galler Yarns recently contacted a handful of bloggers to see if we’d like to be a part of the blog yarn tour for their Inca Eco Cotton Yarn. That blog tour has been going on nicely; I’ve loved seeing what everyone else wrote about their experience with the yarn. And now it’s my turn. Here’s an overview of the yarn and my succinct ten word review (my new yarn review signature).

About the Yarn

cotton yarn Inca Eco Cotton Yarn Review and Blog Tour

Inca Eco is an organic cotton thick-and-thin yarn that is imported from Peru. The skeins, which are sold wholesale (store locator here), are 640 yards.

The Color I Used

This yarn comes undyed or in various dyed colors, mostly earthy tones. I used a beautiful dusty blue. The color is consistent throughout the skein. Lovely.

What I Crocheted

I knew that I wanted to use this organic yarn to make a natural organic vase for my home. I made one, filled it with potpourri, topped it with a feather (until I can get a great fake rose) and added it to a vignette on my fireplace mantle.

My Succinct (almost) 10 Word Yarn Review

  1. Cotton
  2. Organic
  3. Natural
  4. Soft (so incredibly soft)
  5. Boucle (it’s not, but the thick and thin nature of it makes it almost like a boucle in cotton)
  6. Cozy
  7. Eco-friendly
  8. Luxurious
  9. Local (an odd choice, I know, but Galler Yarns is sold in at least two of my LYS so it feels local)
  10. Yes (I do recommend it!)

The Rest of the Blog Tour

It would get dirty if I were there as I would be touching-feeling it all of the time :)

I would love to purchase this online. Do you know of any online stores that carry the large skeins?

What a great vase! I'm always looking for ways to display dried flowers, so this a cool idea.
