Sultan is a brand new and fabulous "cake-yarn" made from 100% soft cotton. The texture of this yarn is 4 thin cotton threads which makes it perfect for shawls, afghans and scarves, where the long colour changes will come out perfectly.

Cotton Kings Sultan is available in many magnificent colour combinations and is presented in big luscious 200 gram balls with a meterage of approximately 800 metres. Shades 6-10 are the popular tone-on-tone colour changes and they change one thread at a time. Where the hue changes, you will see a tiny knot in one of the 4 twined strands that the yarn consists of. You can choose to ignore it which many crafters choose, or you can pull out a tiny bit of the yarn (the entire twined strand) in order to weave in the end at the back of your work. This spreads out the long colour changes over the 800 metres of thread with a dazzling result, crocheted or knitted alike. The cakes have an unusually pretty colour progression, where the nuances change from light to dark - or the other way around depending on whether you start with the inside or the outside thread. 

Use the Sultan cakes for shawls and summery scarves, allowing the change in nuances to shine, in one long handmade creation. A pretty boléro, a summer dress or summer top, where it will give you a delicate dip dye effect, could also be just the ticket for both adults and children.

It takes about one cake to make one shawl or scarf.
Pro tip: Before you start working the Sultan cake, run all 4 treads through a small bead to help the threads stay together throughout the project.

The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 2076-311). Find more information about the certification on the https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/.

Sultan is just so beautiful! The long colour changes are divine, the cake feels like it goes on forever! Such a huge amount of great quality cotton! I wish I could afford to buy all the colours.
These are fantastic for making mandalas, shawls, scarfs, ponchos, beach dresses \ cover ups, crop \ bra tops or lightweight pullovers for the summer evenings. So very versatile


Lucy

I adore this yarn. It's beautiful, soft and easy to work with.
I'm using no 29 Rainbow Pyrite to make the Classical Attitude shawl and the colour changes look so beautiful I can't wait to wear it.
Will definitely be ordering more colours to make shawls for every season - and I think I know what all the women in my family will be getting for Christmas!!!


Aga

I've been sceptical about outcome of my work but it turned out to be amazing. Really love the way how colours changes . I bought no 11- blue moonstone I got 3 of them . Used nearly 2 for my shawl so surely soon I'll start to work it for another shawl in different pattern. Perfect for for spring / summer


Georgina

Bought the Rose Quartz no9 and it is so much more beautiful than the picture, the lighter colour is more a very very pale pink than white and I'm glad of that as I was worried it would be too white. Still getting used to using such a fine yarn but it feels becaustiful when crocheted up


Sana

My yarn order came in today and I was pleasantly surprised by one small hard candy in the package. HOBBII definately go up and beyond to maintain customer satisfaction. The purchase was definately worth it, the product itself it a nice vibrant blend. I cant wait to use it.
