I’m really excited about Galler’s new yarn, Inca Eco. It’s a beautiful fiber with the same gorgeously soft hand and wonderful texture as Galler’s Organic Cotton, but dyed in and amazing range of colors from soft pastels to really vibrant brights. A lot of people think cotton is this hard stringy stuff, but Inca Eco has an incredible hand – a real pleasure to knit. It looks great in seed stitch and similar patterns that play up the fabulous texture. Here's a swatch with both stitches.
I’ve carried Galler yarns in the shop since 2004 when I first openend Crazy for Ewe. I fell in love with Peruvian Tweed, and it has become a real favorite with our customers. I had seen a beautiful wrap in a magazine ad and wanted to duplicate it. Peruvian Tweed was the obvious choice, so I ordered ten skeins each of three colors and got to work. The result was our Luxurious Alpaca Stole. It’s an incredibly simple pattern – just two by two ribbing, but held double and knit on a US 10.5 needle. It’s an amazing garment, and customers who pick it up in the shop typically buy two skeins of the Peruvian Tweed to make it. It’s an incredible soft yarn with a generous 600 yards per skein at a really decent price. What’s not to love!
