A special thanks to Hobbii for sending me the yarn to try! This is my honest review of the yarns I was able to try.
I was introduced to Hobbii Yarn a few years ago, and I still have so many yarns to try! Hobbii is located in Copenhagen, Denmark and was founded in 2015. According to the website they are a “one-stop shop for yarn lovers around the world”! They carry yarn and other supplies for both crocheters and knitters.
The Hobbii shop contains a huge variety of yarns ranging from fingering to jumbo weight. You’ll find a variety of fibers, and every yarn comes in a wonderful array of colors to choose from. In addition to yarn, they carry crochet hooks, knitting needles, notions, and other supplies you might need for your projects. To top it off, they also have beautiful and fun crochet and knitting patterns, with both free and premium options available!
Beyond just providing yarn and tools for crafters, Hobbii has also created a wonderful community for it’s customers. Every week they play a BINGO game where you have the chance to win prizes. They also have a fun competition page where they have monthly challenges with all kinds of fun themes!
Hobbii was so kind and sent me some of yarns to try out so I could write an honest review on what I’ve tried. I’ve tried several of their yarns previously, but I chose yarns that I had never used before to give a true first impression.
The first yarn I chose was their Dream Colour. This is fingering (#1) weight yarn made from 100% Virgin Wool. Each skein is 437 yards/100g. It has a gradual color change to it and comes in over 18 beautiful colorways!
I haven’t decided just yet what I’m going to do with this one. After working up a swatch, I was able to get a better idea of how it worked up and looked. I was also a bit worried that it may not be quite soft enough to make a sweater or cardigan with, but after blocking the swatch it softened up nicely. I may decide to make a Plumbago Sweater with this, or design something new!
Next, I choose Portobello. This is a worsted (#4) weight yarn. It is 60% cotton, 28% acrylic, and 12% wool. It has a chainette structure with a cotton mesh tubing and the acrylic and wool fibers blown into it. It’s a really neat yarn!
Each ball of yarn has 131 yards and it comes in over 17 different colorways. What drew me to it immediately was the heathered look it had! The colors are so vibrant but have that almost colored pencil shading look to them!
I used this yarn to make my Rory Hat and Cowl combo! I absolutely LOVED the drape and feel of this yarn! It was so fun to work with and the end result was beautiful! This will definitely be a yarn I use often for hats, scarves, and even garments!
The last yarn I chose was this beautiful cake yarn, called Twister!
Twister is not only a gorgeous, self-striping caked yarn, but it’s made from my favorite fiber blend! It is 55% cotton, 45% acrylic. This yarn is a sport (#2) weight yarn. It comes in more than 30 beautiful colorways and has 1,094 yards per cake!
One of the first things I noticed is that it has an easy start tab in the middle so you don’t have to go searching for the end of the yarn. That is so helpful and I love when a yarn has that feature. I do think this yarn is on the lighter side for a sport (#2) weight, but that can be a good thing, because I definitely think it could be used for a number of patterns that call for fingering (#1) weight yarn. Just be sure to check gauge!
I think I’m going to make my Rosie Tee with this yarn. It calls for a fingering weight, but after working up a gauge swatch, I know I can meet gauge with it. I think it will be stunning in the beautiful stripes this yarn will create!
Hobbii yarn has become one of my favorite places to get yarn. They have so many options in every weight, fiber, and color! Yes, they are in Denmark which is out of the country for me, but their shipping is pretty quick and I usually have my yarn within 10 days.
Overall, I am very happy with Hobbii yarn and plan to continue to use it for my crochet projects often! Stay tuned for updates on the projects I make with this yarn!
