Two New Yarns!

I am excited to introduce to you two new yarns to the fiber garden:

The first yarn is Inca Cotton. It is 100% naturally colored organic cotton. I have loved this yarn for a long time. It is much softer than regular cotton. It is great for baby projects as well as facecloths and any other project that calls for cotton. The yarn is a bulky weight with a thick & thin texture. I knit up the canning jar cozy out of this yarn for Christmas. I can report that it was a huge success and the recipient uses it all the time. This yarn comes in three colors: Ecru, Desert (brown & white), and Ur.

My second yarn I am totally in love with is called Aztec Boucle. It is also 100% naturally colored organic cotton. It has a small boucle texture that makes it feel like terry cloth when knit up. I am currently knitting the cutest baby sweater out of this yarn as a sample. I am just waiting for the buttons to arrive, then I will share it with you guys. The yarn is a sport-dk weight yarn. It is hard to tell with boucles. I am knitting it on a US#4 and I think it is pretty perfect. The yarn comes in 4 colors: Ecru, Amber, Kalahari (brown & white), and Tan.

Currently I am not planning on dyeing these yarns. I really love the natural tones they come in and that they are all organic. Also, in case you are wondering, they are both 100% vegan yarns.
