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; Eu adorava ver o que todo mundo escreveu sobre sua experiência com o fio. E agora é a minha vez. Here’s an overview of the yarn and my succinct ten word review (my new yarn review signature).
About the Yarn
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 metros.
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. Encantador.
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 Palavra revisão Yarn
- Soft (so incredibly soft)
- Boucle (it’s not, but the thick and thin nature of it makes it almost like a boucle in cotton)
- Local (an odd choice, Eu sei, but Galler Yarns is sold in at least two of my LYS so it feels local)
- Sim (I do recommend it!)
