Acrylic Yarn

Acrylic yarn is an artificially manufactured yarn product which has, in spite of being considered a stiff and scratchy material for several years, finally won the love of the people. Fortunately, however, acrylic yarn is now considered a high quality material with many practical features and advantages.

The acrylic yarn's many properties

The many benefits and features that acrylic yarn holds makes it easy to use in everyday life. Of course, using synthetic yarn is a matter of taste, but there is no doubt that the synthetic yarn is more effective in its color fidelity than naturally produced yarns, which means that it can be washed more often without losing its color. This characterizes acrylic yarn as one of the most durable yarns, as both color and fit remain relatively unchanged no matter how many times they are washed. New technologies have also helped to change the negative perception that have previously ruled, as many different versions of acrylic yarn are being produced, most of which are super soft. One of the greatest benefits of acrylic yarn is its hypoallergenic properties. So if you want to knit or crochet clothes for a person with allergy, using acrylic yarn is the obvious choice. It is possible to crochet with 100% acrylic, but many choose to combine it with other yarn products such as cotton yarn, which is very popular. In addition, the acrylic yarn is hugely user-friendly, so even if you're a beginner, it's easy to work with this kind of yarn while it's also cheap and good for practising, so get your knit on!

Good for everyday life

The good thing about the acrylic yarn is that it can be used for both knitting, crochet and embroidery, giving you virtually almost endless possibilities if you activate your imagination. This also gives you the chance to do different everyday projects such as clothes, toys, teddy bears and dolls for your children or grandchildren. However, you should be aware that acrylic is heat sensitive and as such should not be washed at over 40 degrees, as it risks losing its shape. So if you prefer yarns that are easy and great to work with, there is no doubt that acrylic could easily become your favorite yarn material.

What our customers say about Acrylic Yarn

Gwyneth Albrecht

I bought this yarn for its bright colours. I like the acrylic yarn. As of yet I haven't used it but it is soft and will make beautiful baby cardigans. The service from hobbii is excellent and I got my order on time. I wish your company all the best for the future G. Albrecht

Marion Sell

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!

Jayne Jenkins

I am Welsh so seeing a fabulous colour red in a wool that is so easy to handle was mind blowing. What has being Welsh got to do with it you ask, well I crochet dolls etc for craft shows and this particular colour is dragon. St. Davids day looming many little hands will be holding a red dragon this year made with this fantastic wool. Thank you

Linda Smith

I purchased Colour Bomb Purple Rain. Wonderful colour mix and beautifully soft. Lovely to work with. Started my project Classical Autumn Poncho (Free pattern download) the day it arrived and looking forward to seeing finished article. Delivery time was brilliant and communication great. Will deffinitely use again.

Marcella McDonnell

I would love to knit mayfair because the colours are so beautiful. I'm a pensioner so I depend on people to donate wool to me. I knit for charity as I've nobody to knit for. I bought your knitting bag and I love it. It's beside me all the time.


I purchased this as I absolutely fell in love with the colour way Fairytale Rainbow. It’s is happily on its way to making the most beautiful Sophie’s Universe and looks stunning. Won’t hesitate to purchase again for another big project.

Sue Parker

This is a really beautiful yarn. Before I received it, I was a little concerned that the metallic strip would be really rough and itchy but it's absolutely fine and the yarn works up lovely and soft. I'll definitely be ordering again


Absolutely beautiful yarn and so soft. I can't wait to start working with it. The cost was reasonable and delivery was on time. Delivery is quite expensive due to being overseas shipping so it's better to buy a few items at once.
