Select Color:

We have fallen head over heels for Twister, a really soft cake-yarn with beautiful color transitions, that develop into festive, subtle or crazy wild color combinations.

Perhaps you already know cake-yarns from e.g. Mayflower and Cotton Kings’ Twirls. If you crave a treat, you should know that “cake” is just a term for the way the yarn is packaged :) Our own Twister excels by being twined which makes the yarn easy to work with.

The amazing colors unfold as you go and it is a true pleasure to watch the slow transitions of the colors. Here you get a whole yard (km) of yarn and one skein is enough, if you wish to knit or crochet a shawl or a scarf. The fabulous cotton is combined with acrylic which adds a lighter and more solid end result.

Twister is perfect for shawls and scarves, but it has a lot of potential uses. It is easy to care for since it is machine washable. Please note, the yarn is tied together with a small knot where the threads change colors.

Generally, you use more yarn for crocheting than you do for knitting. So you might experience that you cannot use the entire skein when knitting e.g. a shawl. Of course, it depends on the project and the pattern, you choose. Normally, it is not a problem to have too much yarn, but please consider, if you prefer to start with the thread from the center or from the outside part of your Twister cake-yarn skein when starting on your project.

You can combine it with a one-colored Twister for e.g. an edge on a shawl, for sleeves or for a rib edge on a blouse or a poncho. Check out Twister Solid right here.

Enjoy!

NOTE: Unfortunately, a mistake appears on a few labels. The correct information is 55% cotton + 45% acrylic.

Suggested knitting gauge is approx. 26 stitches x 35 rows with US needles size 2.5 (3 mm). Twister is a very flexible yarn which can be knitted tightly with US needle size 1.5 (2.5 mm), so you get a knitting gauge of approx. 28 stitches. You can also knit it looser with US needle size 6 (4 mm) and get approx. 22 stitches for e.g. extra soft shawls and scarves. Thus, you can experiment with the knitting gauge and easily vary it with various needle sizes depending on the project you are about to start. Try making a small gauge swatch of 4” x 4” (10 x 10 cm), so you can measure your knitting gauge before you start. Then you have the option to adjust it, so it matches the pattern or the gauge, you wish.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

This is my first experience of a ‘cake’ yarn, and, I have to say I absolutely LOVE TWISTER. It feels like a softer version of 100% cotton with the added bonus of the acrylic aspect for easier care.
The colour change is lovely and long, and, the excitement I get when the change is coming in 😁 The little unavoidable knots in the colour change are very neat and secure so I’m not worried they will come undone on the baby blanket I’m crocheting.
If I am completely honest, I would love the TWISTER yarn even more if that was possible, if, in the colourway BLOOMY ELEGANCE that I’m using, there was a section of just white before the grey starts coming in.

I absolutely love this yarn. It is lovely to work with and the colours are so beautiful when made up. I love making shawls with mine and must admit they are becoming a bit of an obsession. I might have just about every colour. If you’re debating please just try one, you won’t regret it. I love that the beginning is marked with a sticker as well.


Denise Gwalter

I am sooo in love with this yarn. The colours are beautiful. The yarn itself is soft and such a joy to work with, does not split like other cotton yarns and just glides on and off the needle/hook. The shawl I made with it has received many compliments. I shall definitely be buying more. Thank you Hobbii for giving us such a great product.


Vanessa Winwood

I adore this yarn!!! I have used more expensive cakes, but this is just as good. The colour changes are so subtle one strand at a time, and the overall effect is beautiful. I have made a Dragon Belly Shawl by Mijo Crochet using a Bloomy Elegance cake and it is constantly getting comments. I have already ordered more!
