A light and soft mohair blend, will add a fluffy glow to your knitting. A yarn for those of you who are crazy about that snuggle mohair-look, and want some subtle volume.

Hobbi Diablo is a great, affordable alternative to kid silk. I can be knitted as a single thread or as an additional thread to many other types of yarn, if you want to add a little extra filling.

Do you want to knit snuggly sweaters on thicker needles? Then we recommend knitting with 2, 3, or even more, threads of Diablo simultaneously. How many threads you use, depends only on how thick a thread you want, or which knitting tension you want to achieve.

Diablo is obviously suitable for color-experimenting, as you can certainly put together a single thread consisting of different colors, thus creating subtle nuances, for example knit with unique stripes.

I bought this yarn to add a slight bit of extra colour and halo to a project I am making for my mother-in-law. Mohair can be difficult to work with, and I do find that unwinding the ball can be somewhat awkward as the yarn tends to stick to itself a bit.

However, when held together with another yarn - DK or bulky in a contrasting colour, it knits up beautifully and provides the halo and fluffiness that I was hoping for. Such a great choice if you are wanting mohair yarn.

i haven't used it yet but i cannot wait to start my project! it's absolutely gorgeous and even softer than it looks. the colours are true to the pictures and it feels like such nice quality for the price. customer service was also excellent, there was an issue and delays with my order but I was kept updated the whole time via email, and the estimated delivery was 6-12 days but it arrived 3 days from dispatch. will definitely be ordering again 🥰

Loved this yarn, used it in conjunction with a Cotton Kings Sultan cake yarn to add softness to a large wrap I crocheted for my mum. It was easy to use, wasn't so 'hairy' that it caught when creating a stitch. I used 4 different colours and did notice that there was a difference in the softness between them. I would certainly use this yarn again.

Love this yarn, bought it in the sales to try it out and made a big fluffy sweater (2 threads), I literally wear it every day, handy for going out as it folds up to nothing and you can put in rucksack... just had to wash it and came out just as good (hand washed. Have stocked up on other coolers and am thinking of combining it with a lace yarn.


Cristina

I made a long scarf using four o these and a size 5.5 hook which produced a very lose knit, it is a great yarn to work with, very delicate and the results are simply beautiful. It is great to experiment with colours and the end scarf was very soft and fluffy, geat choice!
