Hobbii Universe XL is a wonderful expansion of our über popular Universe yarn. Universe XL gives you all the same positive features, but as the name suggests, the XL version is extra thick, which offers completely new possibilities for exciting knitting and crochet projects.
The yarn is distinguished by its long gradients with beautifully balanced colors. The colors are complimented by a glitter thread in a matching color. This creates a more subdued glitter effect, making the yarn even more elegant.
Universe XL runs 220 meters per 100g, so it’s exactly twice as thick as Universe. This makes the yarn perfect for projects that need extra volume. For example, Universe XL can be ideal for a beautiful blanket or a similar project that needs to be both soft and warm.
The sky’s the limit with Universe XL, so explore our exciting color universe for yourself.
The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 2076-311). Find more information about the certification on the https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/

Universe XL is beautiful on the roll and stunning crocheted into gorgeous scarves along with matching Easy Care Merino Wool. The 6 scarves I made were for Christmas gifts and I wish I'd photographed them. The colours & starry twinkles remind me of pictures from the Hubble Space Telescope.
Universe XL is easy to use & a delight to work with.
I recently used universe (not XL) for a project and I was doubling up the yarn. Then I found out about the XL universe and I can confirm it is definitely double the thickness and I'm now using this to complete my project. I just love the colour and its now made Mt work so much easier using this thicker yarn! Highly recommended
Absolutely love the colours of this yarn, I am planning on making a scarf with it when I finish my current project, My friend really likes it too and has asked me to crochet a blanket. So I will be ordering more soon. The only thing it's alot thinner then I expected but it's not an issue because the colours are beautiful.
Just used Blaze Star for the pattern Serene Swirl created by Crochet Hooks and Magic. Fabulous to use with amazing colour striping and contrasted nicely against the white wool. Whilst it has the metallic strip running through it; surprisingly it is not overly scratchy whilst crocheting.
Bought a selection of colourways to make infinity scarves as Christmas gifts for work friends - stunning results as the colour changes and tinselly glittery bits made them look amazing!! Not the softest wool but very snazzy - worth every penny as they go a long way x
