Balinese Cotton Yarns

For complete photos please visit my Crochet-Republic Website

These yarns are among my favorite yarns to crochet with. I have crocheted many different type of yarns from different brands available in the market. I am also in fact a yarn reseller for ICE Yarns, but till now I am not able to find the comparison for the softness of this particular yarns with any type. It's just so unique. Below you will find the pictures of some of its popular colors. They colors availability might change from time to time so if you are making a particular project make sure you buy plenty.

The yarns is locally made in Indonesia and sold without label. 

I have been crocheting this yarn for the items as seen in the pictures in my blog from Strawberry crochet bag, hat, flowers and dollies. The texture is soft like bamboo and very comfortable to crochet. But unlike bamboo which is light and rather fluffy, this yarn is stiff once crocheted making it suitable for bags, purses, dollies, hats, and  decorative items. I am thinking of making a bed spread with it and cushion covers. I don't know if this yarn would be suitable for a baby blanket, but I can only tell you it is smooth, it is soft, it feels like bamboo, it feels like mercerize cotton but it is heavier than acrylic of course. I really think it could make a great baby bootie, sturdy enough but won't be slippery like acrylic. And perhaps to make some amigurumies.
