I have recently become familiar with a line of 100% organic cotton yarn by a company called Galler Yarns – Inca Eco. I cannot get enough of this yarn, I love it. The feel of it is so soft and I love that it is 100% cotton too, which means many people who do not like, or cannot wear wool (like my good friend over at This is Sesame) could wear it and get the feel and look of wool without the super warmth or allergy risk.
While traveling in NY over the 4th of July holiday I picked up a few skeins of it and wanted to find some patterns that would make the yarn resemble a wool look but not be too bulky.
So far I have found a hat pattern and a chunky cowl pattern that I have used and really like with this yarn.
