Highly recommend this yarn brand for those who are looking to make Amigurumi. This is the cheapest yarn I could find that has so much color variety. Plus they have bulk deals! The cheap price means it is good for practicing smaller versions of patterns where you can buy more expensive yarn later and make it bigger (by adjusting yarn weight/needle size) for the patterns you love. Each skein can probably make about 2 small ~5" bodies for dolls. Of course some colors will be accent colors and used in smaller amounts. The initial cost might be high for those just starting. Especially if you are like me and needing to buy all of the colors expanding my possibilities, but the cost to buy additional colors to replenish your inventory is minimal. As far as the yarn, I haven't noticed much piling and easy to work with. The colors seem to match for this brand to the online colors. Shipping was really efficient and it arrived sooner than expected. Plus they provide free goodies in my order!

Wow Hobbii, what a superb treat,
All of these colours are right up my street.
So many shades in this cotton 8/4,
Crocheting is a delight, certainly not a chore.
I love the quality of this fingering weight,
So soft and natural, what shall I create?
So glad I've found you, as I simply adore,
All of your yarns, I'll definitely be back for more.

Fabulous yarn, superior to other cottons I have used and a fantastic price too. So useful with the labelled end of the yarn, no splitting or knots, just beautiful soft natural cotton. I purchased mainly greys as I am crocheting a wall hanging from a graph of my 2 beautiful grandchildren in grey scale for my daughter as a Xmas gift. I love love love it. And yes, as Arnie said, I'll be back, this is my number 1 favourite yarn and store.


I recently tried amigurumi crochet for the first time, initially with acrylic yarn and then, having had some success, graduating to a larger project and Rainbow 8/8 and 8/4 yarn. I had never used cotton yarn before but instantly loved it, and the 8/4 was a revelation because I have seldom used yarn thinner than DK. The yarn feels soft and is comfortable to work, seeming not to shed fibres, and it’s strength and lack of stretch makes it ideal for toys. The variety of colours is impressive and the competitive price and excellent customer service I received from Hobbii staff at every stage ensure that I will be a return customer.


I was very excited to receive my squishy parcel. this was the first time I have ordered from Hobbii and was blown away with the professionalism of this company, and at the same time the friendliness of the staff. I received several emails after I placed my order to tell me that my order was on its way, and was kept informed of what was happening. The quality of the product is amazing and I have actually just placed a second order which I can't wait to arrive. The colours are beautiful and the cotton so lovely to crochet with. I will hopefully be ordering more in the future.


The best yarn, I wouldn’t go anywhere else! I own a small knitting business, knitting baby clothes ect. and I absolutely love this yarn. It’s so easy to work with, super soft and the colours are beautiful. I am always getting compliments from customers on the quality of the cotton. I’ve used 8/4, 8/6 and 8/8 for my knitted outfits, depending on what my knitting patterns require and they are all lovely. I also make knitted wire words with 8/8 yarn and is perfect! Beautiful 🥰
