Amigo XL is one of those wonderful types of yarn that is so easy to work with that it flies over the needle or hook. It is soft and comfortable is produced in 100% HB acrylic of a very high quality and comes in an enormous selection of colors.

HB stands for high bulk. It is a production technique that uses steam and pressure to make the fibers contract a little and curl so that they become fuller. The result is a light and soft yarn that is both comfortable to work with and to wear on the body.

Amigo XL has double the thickness of Amigo, and can therefore be knitted or crocheted on a size 5 mm needle or hook. You will see quick results. The soft yarn is suitable for lots of creative, colorful projects. It does not scratch and is therefore great to use for blankets, sweaters, hats, scarves, etc. The airy yarn will keep you warm and won’t get too heavy.

The entire Amigo series is distinguished by its light volume, uniform structure, and great durability. It can be machine washed at 30°C, perfect for everyday use. Colors and shape will hold up to wash after wash. If you’re allergic to wool, or if you want to opt out of animal fibers for other reasons, you can replace it with Amigo for a soft and lovely result.

The yarn is OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 certified (no. 2276-367). Find more information about the certification at:

I absolutely love this yarn, texture and vivid colours are fantastic. I use if for Needlepunch and it works a treat. So far I have made cushions and I've received many compliments on how soft they are. Have to also commnet of the service I receive from the Hobbii team. It is second to none, full tracking, updates from both Hobbii and the carriers and despite the distance to the UK very quick delivery (even during the pandemic.) Keep up the great work.


As a beginner knitter (literally started knitting around a month ago), these yarns are really lovely to work up and to try new stitches and patterns. The yarn is soft and, currently on my fourth skein, I've yet to come across any knots or splitting. Best of all the colours are bright and lush and I'm back to place another order!


I love this yarn as it's soft, machine washable, easy to work with, is a reasonable price and comes in a great selection of colours. I really love that this yarn comes in other weights too so this yarn quality can suit a variety of different projects. I am currently using the Amigo XL for a blanket design.


This is the first time using this yarn. It’s absolutely gorgeous yarn, so soft and squishy. I’ve brought royal blue and neon pink few weeks ago. Now I’ve just finished the sweater by using those colours that I brought. It’s very nice to work with. Lots of different colours to choose from.


I have this in both royal blue and Christmas red. I bought this based on the recommendations as I needed a soft acrylic yarn for a cowl for a greyhound, with a matching one for his owner. Only just started the projects but the yarn is knitting up really easily and glides through the hands.
