The Danish brand Mayflower was established in 1951 and since then it has been known as “the one with the ship” by knitting- and crocheting enthusiasts all over the world. Originally, Mayflower is known for their lovely cotton yarn, but today they offer various kinds of yarn including acrylic, mohair, silk, wool and linen. Mayflower’s diversity and high quality make the brand incredibly popular among knitting- and crocheting enthusiasts.

In time, Mayflower has developed into a design house whose collection is inspired by Europe. Furthermore, Mayflower also offers you free crochet and knitting patterns which guaranteed will make you want to start many, pretty, creative projects.

Great for everyday use

No matter what you are knitting or crocheting, Mayflower has the yarn you need. Every single yarn quality has specific attributes, and a unique character that is a pleasure to work with. So whether you want to start on something for yourself, your friend, your partner, your kids or grandkids, Mayflower has the right yarn for you. And they offer a lot of free patterns, so if you do not already have a pattern, then you can download various free patterns from Mayflower.

At Hobbii, you will always find a large selection of Mayflower yarn. For example, you will discover that we have the popular Cotton 8/4 Junior in various colors, the ultimate sock yarn 1st Class and the classic Easy Care wool yarn. These are of course just a few examples from our large selection of Mayflower yarn.

The popular cotton yarn from Mayflower can be used for crocheting or knitting e.g. dishcloths and washcloths which many people have discovered. More and more have acknowledged that cloths with plastic are neither good for us nor the environment, and that is why, it has become incredibly popular to create your own. These cloths are quick to knit or crochet, and you get a really good quality, if you choose cotton from Mayflower.

What our customers say about Mayflower

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 have just finished knitting a pair of socks for my newborn grandaughter with this wool, it’s lovely and soft and the colours compliment each other very well, I’m going to make a pair for her mum next as the wool knits up so nicely.

denise doncaster

I have not used this yarn yet as I have a pair of socks on the go but its next on my list. I bought this for the colour as I don't like boring socks and not disappointed, love the colour and is very soft. Cant wait to get started

Carol Davidson

I make Octopus for Preemies and love working with this yarn. It is soft and easy to work with especially for a cotton yarn. This yarn can be washed at 60 deg which is an added bonus. The colour choices are fabulous .


This cotton yarn is a dream to work with. I'm crocheting a blanket and it is coming along beautifully. The yarn is very smooth and handles well. I've ordered another 30+ balls as i enjoy using it so much.


Lovely to work with, I've made a crochet hot water bottle cover and it's held its shape really well. Would definitely recommend this yarn for homeware crafts


Beautiful soft fine cotton yarn. The colour blends are gorgeous and tasteful. I liked the first batch so much, I ordered some more. Making socks with it.

Pamela de Chaumont

Really lovely yarn. Started using it for making octopuses 🐙 for premature babies. It has a lovely soft feel and the colours are beautiful.

Eva Turianska

It's look very pretty and interesting. It's strechy and I will make skirt. Colour is exactly what I ordered. Happy customer. Thanks

amber Tunstall
