Hobbii Metallico is a lovely yarn that really catches the eye with its beautiful, satin shine. You might know other yarn qualities with similar metallic effects, but Metallico is soft like no other. Here you get the nice, shiny effect without compromising on comfort. 

Metallico is made from a shiny, satin like thread of polyamide that’s encased by a fluffy, lightly brushed mix of merino wool and soft acrylic. It can be used for the whole family - including those with more delicate skin since the yarn doesn’t itch but is soft and lovely. If you want a truly unique result in your next knitting or crocheting project, Metallico can be the perfect yarn for the job.

You can easily make the loveliest hats, scarves or other accessories that will get the most beautiful shine that makes Metallico different from all other yarns. You can add elegant ribbed edges to your knitwork with it. Or use it in a festive sweater. The shine of the yarn can lift a very simple design into the extraordinary. A lovely, striped cardigan can become magnificent if you combine different colors. 

Have fun! 

The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 1976-294). Find more information about the certification on the https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/

Just received the package today and am over the moon with it. The yarn is gorgeous and extremely soft, seems very workable even for me as a beginner. It arrived within a few days of placing the order which is great especially seeing as it went from Denmark to UK. They even threw in some darning needles and a sweet which was lovely. The only slight thing is the yarns smaller than I thought it would be but that could just be my mistake from not reading the description properly plus it's so cheap that buying multiple is really not an issue. All in all, very impressed and will definitely be buying again!

Loved this yarn. I crocheted a sweater in lovely teal colour in yarn from hobbi . It’s crocheted vertically rather than the usual horizontal. I used this yarn in Tahitian green which added a touch of luxury to the finished garment. It was easy to use, a lovely rich colour that toned so well with the plain yarn bringing a life to it. Soft to the touch. I highly recommend it. I’ve just ordered more of the same and also in two other colours.


Sandra

Amazingly soft and warm yarn. I used this yarn to knit and crochet my totally turtle blanket. Although the blanket used about 5 balls of each of the colours and ended up being plenty big enough to cover a double bed it was surprisingly lightweight. I loved the fact that joining the yarn was sooooo easy as it is formed as a lusterous metallic knit tube encasing all the merino fuffiness making invisible (or Russian) joining simple.


Jane

I am a metallico addict. Reasons?

1. Beautiful colours (any chance of increasing the range, please?)
2. Soft and squdgy (a technical term) especially if you are doing waffle stitch.
3. A lovely, quality yarn to crochet with.
4. Reasonable full price (with discounts for multiple buys) and often on offer.

Everyone who has seen me use it, remarks on the quality.

More please

This yarn is glorious. Soft against the skin with a lovely soft metallic sheen. Looks classy by comparison to most yarns with metallic threads. This yarn is constructed differently - the whole thing seems to glow, and it has a lovely halo. I’ve got it in 2 colours so far. Planning some knit tops to wear with jeans and heels for a night out. Should we ever be allowed out.
