Which Yarn Should I Choose?
Yarn can be made of both synthetic and natural materials. Many yarns are produced in a mixture of materials, to get the benefits from several materials. The most common yarn materials are cotton, wool and acrylic but you can also buy yarn made of linen or bamboo yarn.
At Hobbii we have a wide selection of high quality yarn. We have everything from the softest alpaca and merino wool to the more traditional cotton yarn, as well as durable sock yarn and ribbon yarn. What yarn you should choose depends on the project you are planning to make, so try to think about what you want to knit or crochet. Cotton is, for instance, good for dishcloths and summer clothing, whereas wool is better for winter and organic yarn is good for children projects. Below you can see an overview of the benefits of our most popular yarn types and what projects they are especially good for.
Our 4 Favorite Types of Yarn
Cotton is a soft fibre, which grows around seeds of the cotton plants. It is a very popular material to work with, because it can be used in almost all knitting and crochet projects. You can make everything from summer clothing to childrens’ toys with cotton yarn. When compared to other yarn types, cotton is not as strong as silk and linen, but more durable than wool.
Mercerized Cotton is cotton that has undergone a process of mercerization to improve the yarn. The process makes the yarn a little more shine, but it also makes the yarn stronger and softer. Furthermore, the process of mercerization improved the yarns ability to absorb dye. Clothing made of mercerized cotton yarn maintains their natural shape for longer and does not shrink, as much as normal clothing made of cotton.
Cotton Yarn has many valuable properties. If you, for instance, use yarn made of 100% cotton the item you create will be very soft, and, therefore, very comfortable to wear. 100% cotton is also a good yarn to use for people with allergies. Cotton yarn is great for knitting and crocheting ponchos, shawls and blouses, because cotton is good at keeping warmth. If you are looking for a different style, you can choose one of the many yarn blends made with cotton, and get a result that looks different and is very durable. There are many cotton yarn blends to choose from, as cotton can be mixed with everything from silk to wool.
If you are new to knitting and/or crochet, we recommend using cotton yarn to knit or crochet small squares, to learn the techniques. You can, for example, easily make a homemade and organic dishcloth or potholder using organic cotton yarn.

Hobbii’s selction of wool yarn contains everything from alpaca wool, merino, mohair and 100% virgin wool. A common benefit of all these wool types is their amazing ability to keep you warm. Yarn made of wool can look very different depending on the breed of sheep, but alle wool can be used for both knitting and crochet, so there are endless possibilities.
There are many benefits of using wool in your knitting or crochet projects. Firstly, wool is a naturally temperature regulating material, which can absorb up to 35% moisture without feeling cold or wet. Secondly, there are many wool types that are itch-free, and feel silk-like and incredibly soft.
- Alpaca wool is the softest and finest wool you can get. This type of yarn is very light, 100% itch-free and free from chemicals, making it a very hypoallergenic. Alpaca’s temperature-regulating qualities makes it a great yarn for sweaters, mittens, hats and scarfs. Yarn made of 100% alpaca wool does not keep its shape very well, which is why we have a great selection of alpaca yarn blends that are mixed with other materials that strengthen the yarn, so that your creations will stay in the shape you created them in.
- Merino wool is, like alpaca, extremely soft and 100% scratch-free. This type of wool is often used for
- underwear and sports clothing, as it is both temperature-regulating and odour-resistant, which prevents you from smelling even when you are sweaty. Merino wool is also very popular if you are planning a knitting and crochet project for children or babies.
- Mohair consists of thin, smooth fibres from the Angora goat, which are gathered and combined with another fibre, such as wool, polyamide or silk, during the spinning process. The fine loose fibres give the yarn a highly insulating ability, while maintaining its temperature-regulating qualities. Mohair is recognisable by its fluffy look, which is what makes mohair so luxurious. Mohair is often combined with another yarn type in knitting and crochet project does because of its thin thread, but you can also make very light and beautiful summer cardigans or shawls with only mohair.
At Hobbii we have many knitting and crochet projects made with wool.
Acrylic Yarn, Polyamide and Polyester
Yarn made of synthetic fibres, such as acrylic yarn, has been criticized for many years. It is often believed to be hard and itchy, but this is luckily not the case anymore. Technology advancements have enhanced the quality of many of these synthetic fibres. There are now a wide range of high quality synthetic yarns that are as soft as silk and others that have exciting special effects that can spice up your knitting and crochet creations, if you think they need a little something extra.
A common characteristic of acrylic, polyamide and polyester is their ability to maintain the same color for a long time. You can wash synthetic yarns many times without it losing color. Of all yarn types, synthetic yarns are the most durable, because the shape and color will remain relatively unchanged regardless of how many times they are washed.
One of the main benefits of using synthetic yarn is that it is hypoallergenic. If you are knitting and crocheting clothing for someone with allergies, then you can easily use yarn to ensure that there won’t be any allergic reactions. Some yarn types are made of 100% acrylic yarn, but there are also many yarn blends combining, for instance, acrylic and cotton.
If you are new to knitting and crochet, synthetic yarns are great to start with, because they are not only easy to work with but also cheap, so you can get a lot of practice. Take a look at our selection of free patterns for knitting and crochet, many of which can be made with acrylic yarn.
Tape and ribbon yarn has become a very popular yarn material, because of its many creative possibilities. The yarn is very nice to work with and also very fast, so your projects will be complete in no time at all. It is, therefore, a great yarn to use for beginners, who want to try larger projects that do not take too long to make.
We have tape and ribbon yarn made of cotton, as well as ribbon yarn made of a combination of cotton, polyamide, polyester and viscose. Choosing a ribbon yarn made of 100% cotton means the result will be a little more soft and smooth, whereas ribbon yarn made of several materials will make your creation more stiff. Tape and ribbon yarns are great for home decor projects, like blankets, pillows, flowerpots and baskets. It is likewise great for making beautiful handbags.

What our customers say about Yarn
Really love this cotton! It is soft and doesn’t split. After advice via Hobbii on Facebook, I bought this to crochet planned colour pooling to make an argyle pattern. While it is not the easiest print yarn to work out the number of stitches for planned pooling, the resulting pattern looks amazing! The initial working out of stitches takes a lot of crocheting and pulling apart, but the yarn didn’t deteriorate at all. I used 114 black/white/grey. Can’t wait to try out the other colours and I will definitely buy the solid colour version too. Just brilliant. Thanks Hobbii!
I purchased this in Groovy Fantasy, colour 501. I am in the UK and impressed with the whole transaction. Immediately I had placed my order, I was sent an order confirmation and send tracking details when the order left Denmark. I was also impressed with the accuracy of the colour I chose, from looking at it on the internet to holding the yarn in my hand, this accuracy is so important for knitters/crocheters and I was so assured that I went back to the site and ordered some more yarn, which hopefully will be arriving soon. Thanks Hobbii, very glad I found you.
This is the first time that I've used this yarn and it won't be the last. I absolutely love it. It knits up a dream with fantastic stitch definition. The socks are comfortable to wear and my husband is now asking me to make a pair. It took slightly more than one ball of yarn to make a pair of socks as I knit a 14cm cuff and take a UK size 6.5 shoe. It's just a shame that the colour selection is very limited. I used the sky print as I like colour change yarn and having a better selection would encourage me to buy more.
It's amazing to work up into a nice little blanket on a 6mm crochet hook. I was looking to buy some more colour bags as a bag of 5 is perfect for a dog blanket and the various colourways make the blankets very attractive. It certainly does feel premium compared to other yarns I've worked with and is an excellent choice for a medium weight crochet project, like a blanket, scarf or poncho. However, I bought mine in the sale as it's a bit pricey otherwise.
I bought 10 balls of colour 69214 and I love the soft smooth feel and the muted colourway - absolutely true to the colour on my screen. I'm planning to make a sweater with this yarn and swatching has come out beautifully so I'll be getting started soon. The benefit of a cotton/acrylic blend has got to be that it's so easy to wash without worrying about shrinkage. Delivery from Denmark to the UK was reasonable and fast. Pretty perfect x
Beautiful yarn. I have used it to make a lovely lighweight baby blanket - which I hope to upload a photo of once it's finished! This was amongst the items from my first order with this company. I cna't rate them highly enough. The quality of the products is brilliant and the speed of delivery is amazing (in my case posted to the UK with a very reasonable p&p charge) I will definitely use them again - a lovely company to deal with!
This yarn is a pleasure to work with very easy on the hands I will be coming back for more! The pull skein tab makes finding your thread so easy more more pulling half the skein trying to find the middle end. The yarn feels nice and soft again the skin I’m making eco face scrubbies at present and 100g makes a lot, I’m now planning to use this yarn for garments as I like it so much and the colours are lovely too
I love this yarn, I have bought a few balls of cotton from here before and the quality is so good, this has become my favourite place to shop for well-priced quality yarn. The colours in this pack (01) are gorgeous. I made my Mum a facecloth using some of your cotton and she is amazed at how soft and lovely it is. Very fast delivery as well, and customer service is spot on, thank you.
My grandson delivered my Happy Feet and crochet animal book - looking through the book he picked out a dragon for himself and (first the cow) but I am now crocheting an alpaca by adapting the sheep pattern I am also planning to use some of the wool stash I now have to make some super hippy style winter tops so look out for more orders of yarn from me I am hoping the orders roll in
I've recently received this, but as yet haven't knitted with it. The yarn is lovely and soft with a beautiful sheen. The colour I chose is Rosa which is gorgeous. Having just been knitting with pure silk there is a similarity with the sheen of this yarn and I suspect the definition will also be very good. I've found the perfect pattern for this andI can't wait to get started!
