Ribbon is our lovely ribbon yarn that has been super popular for many years and a staple in our assortment. The yarn is produced from pure, high-quality cotton and made specially for Hobbii. It consists of a flat, knit tube that looks amazing when it’s knit or crocheted.
Many ribbon yarns are made from mixed qualities or leftover materials. Our Ribbon is made from 100% cotton and knitting with it is a unique experience. We’ve put great care into finding the perfect ribbon yarn made from pure, natural materials. It needs to have the right balance where the yarn has the appropriate softness that makes it nice to work with but also has enough volume and firmness to make the final shape of the project stable and keep its shape.
Ribbon is durable and easy to work with. It can be used for all kinds of interior projects like bags, blankets, pillows, baskets, pot holders, and much, much more. Let your imagination run wild and let the many beautiful colors inspire you.
The yarn is OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 certified (no. 2076-311). Find more information about the certification at: https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/

Excellent yarn. I've only used it to make baskets and they have been so successful I'm amazed. I made one to hold the temple controls for the TV, the video player, satellite dish etc. My grandchildren never put them back where they belonged so when I came to use them I couldn't find them. Now they have their own special basket and the children always put them back. I also made one to hold cosmetics in the bathroom. Between the two on display ones I have received dozens of requests for me to make one for my friends. I have currently made another one for me and one for my granddaughter in girly pink and lurex white. She's thrilled with it and uses it for her make up. I've ordered loads more colours so that I can make more for my friends. It's great stuff. Can't recommend it highly enough.
I bought this lovely tape yarn when I heard that I was becoming a grandma. In a conversation with my daughter she expressed she wanted No Plastic toys and simple, handmade and natural materials.
After making the lovely rainbow coloured crochet baby blanket with the soft cotton knitting yarn from Hobbii, I set out to make a nest of seven rainbow coloured bowls in this tape yarn. The only dissapointing thing was that I couldn't find a proper orange in the range of colours available and had to resort to no. 16 coral. As I used a dense crochet stitch to make the bowls more sturdy the yarn was a bit hard to work with it. However, despite some sore fingers, the result has exceeded my expectations. The bowls are lovely and sturdy and can even be stacked on top of each other to make a tower.
So many colour choices it was hard to choose! I ended up selecting 20, 31, 36, and 37.
The colours are all true to the pictures, I have found they all look perfect. They feel lovely and soft to use, and they work up nicely. I've been using my skeins of 20 and 31 to make a bag and it is coming along really nicely. The only thing I'd say is I should have bought more than I thought I'd need, but that is my fault for not properly checking the length of yarn in a skein.
I would 100% buy this again and I'd recommend this yarn if someone was looking for an alternative to typical chunky yarns
I have used Ribbon to make several baskets as presents and they were all received with great delight. The yarn is easy to work with and the work grows really quickly. I have just bought a lot more as my "lockdown" project for this year is clutch bags for all my teenage & 20s Great Nieces, and my two granddaughters. The range of colours is fabulous as I can find a special colour for each of them. I even made myself a summer hat using this yarn and everyone asks me where I got it from! Thank you so much
Brilliant yarn and excellent quality. Loving the speed to the finished article. I made the owl rug and it took me a day and half to complete. My grandson is going to be over the moon with it. Only disadvantage is that it made my fingers sore, but that was probably because I couldn’t stop! I would definitely recommend this product and am looking forward to more projects using this. Forgot to mention the fantastic service and speed of delivery too. Thanks everyone.
