Rainbow Deluxe 8/4
2 ply, 3 ply100% Turkish Cotton
£2.65 From £1.70
Meet Rainbow Deluxe; the extra durable member of our large Rainbow-family. The Deluxe version is made from 100% combed Turkish cotton, which is soft, flexible, and exceptionally durable.
Turkish cotton is known and loved for its natural shine and the extra long fibers. The length of the fibers has a lot to say when it comes to spinning a fine and smooth cotton yarn that’s resilient and especially durable. Textiles in Turkish cotton stay beautiful for many years and only get softer with use.
Rainbow Deluxe also excels when it comes to its absorbing powers, but is quick-drying at the same time. It creates the perfect balance in a soft cotton yarn that is well-suited for things like exquisite towels and interior textiles as well as blouses, tops, and cute summer styles.
If you love amigurumi, there’s lots of opportunities to play around with color combinations since Rainbow Deluxe can be easily combined with other Rainbow 8/4 yarns. When it comes to fit, we recommend that you keep to one version when knitting/crocheting clothing.
Like our other 100% cotton yarns, Rainbow Deluxe can withstand warm wash - but washing at higher temperatures will inevitably make the colors fade over time. Unless you’re knitting/crocheting dishcloths or towels we recommend that you wash it at max 104°F (40°C).
The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 2076-311). Find more information about the certification on the https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/

I ordered three balls of this yarn to try out on a small amigurumi project, and have to say that I absolutely love it. Easy to work with on a 2.75 hook, no splitting, and just overall a good cotton yarn...so have now ordered a larger amount to make more wonderful animal amigurumi's.
It’s a very good quality yarn. I bought 3 skeins to use as contrasting colours. It’s so soft and shiny. I wish I had ordered more of these. Hobbii rainbow 🌈 deluxe 8/4 seems thicker than the Cotton Kings sultan deluxe, which also a 4ply cotton yarn.
Love love love this yarn. Its quite fine and I found a 3mm hook to be perfect for working with this yarn. I recently made a summer poncho in shades 26, 27,28,29 and 30 and it came out beautiful. I'll definitely de buying more in the future
Rainbow cotton 8/4 is amazing and this is step up from that!! The rainbow delux is so incredibly soft!! the colour selection is fantastic and I’m so happy with all the shades of nude I currently have in my stash :)
Beautiful and luxurious cotton. Colours are vibrant and plentiful. I found this yarn to be tiny bit thinner than the standard rainbow 8/4 but not hugely noticable.
