£4.45  From £2.20

Select Color:

Hobbii Colorina is a lovely, soft yarn with a slightly mottled look combined with long color changes. Colorina is a unique looking yarn unlike any other. 

The yarn has a loosely spun structure, which adds a little variety in thickness. It’s really easy to work with, and you’ll enjoy seeing the results as you work. The long color changes create beautiful plays of color in the form of subdued, wide stripes that slowly change color. 

Colorina is a great combination of wool and acrylic, giving you the best qualities from both fibers. The wool makes the yarn breathable, as is common with natural fibers, while the acrylic grants the yarn an incredible color depth. 

The result is a warm and wonderfully soft yarn that’s easy to handle, since it’s machine washable. The sky’s the limit when it comes to the many creative projects you can make. Colorina can be used for almost any type of clothing - e.g. sweaters, cardigans, ponchos, and, naturally, a wealth of different accessories and interiors. 

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

What lovely yarn!
For 50g you get a fair bit of yardage, too. This yarn is very lovely and soft. Those sensitive to wool will definitely pick up on the 20% wool content in it though. It isn't scratchy, but there's something wooly about it that just can't be denied. It also has a sizeable halo, so maybe not the best thing to have directly next to your skin if you're prone to getting all itchy like myself. The colours are beautiful, with nice subtle transitions. One thing I should mention though is that this yarn is biased (unbalanced, where it has a tendency to wrap around itself) which means that it will not lend itself well for knitting. I don't know for sure as I haven't knit with it yet, but from past experience... Won't make a difference with crocheting and weaving though. I'm currently working on a crocheted jumper with this yarn, and it's looking fab.

I absolutely love this yarn. So much so that I am ordering more, it is perfect for crocheting a wrap it will keep me warm without weight, brilliant as I have arthritis in my shoulders. The colour changes are very subtle and the colours -wow- 05 has gorgeous changes in lilac ,soft mauve and a light purple. Also 200metres in each ball makes it very reasonable for garments and larger shawls etc.


Rachel Dyke

Completely in love with this gorgeous yarn.
Very soft and fabulous colours. As the previous review mentions, it does tangle easily, so not great if you make a mistake and have to undo!!
I am crocheting a baby jumper for my granddaughter and a cardigan for me!! Fabulous stuff!!!


Renata

Love this one! It is so light and airy, it feels like you are working with a clouds. Finished garments are very light but warm. One ball is enough for a hat which is a big plus. The colours are true to the screen.


Cath

This yarn is smooth, soft and lovely. I bought the Glowing Dark colourway and it's stunning. I crocheted it up into a simple summer tshirt and it feels lovely to wear and cool too.
