Introducing a super soft cake yarn with beautiful colour changes that are bound to give you festive and sparkly / harmoniously muted / crazy wild  colour combination.
Perhaps you are already familiar with cake yarns from such brands as Mayflower and Cotton Kings Twirls. If this is giving you the munchies, you should know that cake is just a term for the way the yarn has been wound :) Our very own Twister stands out because it is twined, which makes it easy to knit with.

The amazing colours unfold underway, and it is a joy to see the gradual colour changes. This cake gives you a whole kilometre of yarn, which means that in one single cake, you will have enough yarn to knit or crochet an entire shawl or scarf. The glorious cotton has been joined by acrylic, rendering the tread lighter and at the same time providing a more stable shape for the end result. Twister is perfect for shawls and scarf, but is really a multipurpose yarn. Moreover, it is easy to maintain since it is machine washable. Please note that the tread has been tied together at the colour changes. It is simply impossible to avoid in 1000 metres of yarn in 5 different colours :)

As a rule, crocheting uses up more yarn than knitting. For this reason you may experience that your knitting does not “eat up” all of the cake in for example a knitted shawl. Naturally this will depend on which project and pattern you choose. Normally, it does not present an issue when there is excess yarn - but it makes it worth considering whether you want to start knitting from the inside or the outside of the cake.

We are already head over heels for Twister, and we have been dying to present it to you! Enjoy.

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.

I'm so pleased with my purchase of a Hobbii twister, it took me ages to pick a colourway, but eventually went with soft classic 16, plus another for a gift. The pictures online are good, but in real life the colours are so vivid, and I cannot fault the quality! Would highly recommend!

I chose this for a project instead of the known expensive brand and I’m so glad I did! Stitches look great and the colours are amazing, the pictures don’t do them justice! Will definitely buy again.

Beautiful yarn, very pleased with my choice and can't wait to get started on a project. Very impressed with the speed of the delivery too

I thought that I would give this yarn a try instead of another popular brand to compare them, especially as this brand is cheaper when on offer. This yarn is slightly thicker, but not too much. It has great stitch definition, drape and my work feels lovely and soft. It is great being able to see completed projects here on the website to give an idea of how the different colours look when made up. this has encouraged me to think about choosing one that I may not have done. The only thing that I'm not keen on are the knots where the colour change happens. I found some of the colour changes a bit too abrupt instead of the gradual ones of the other brand I use a lot. It won't stop me using this brand though.
Delivery was very quick.
