I’m not a knitter nor do I crochet!
I’m a weaver and always on the look out for natural yarns in a wide variety of colours.
I stumbled across Hobbii and fell in love with the 8/8 cotton yarn - what a beautiful array of colours, it was hard to stick to my original palette. Fantastically quick service, I hardlyhard time to drool and be impatient!
Will definitely be back for more - just don’t tell my husband!

My grandchildren wanted a rainbow blanket, after searching for various colours, I came across hobbi rainbow 8/8 .. the colour choice is amazing, the Cottonsoft natural yarn is a joy to work with , I purchased all colours that were available, I would recommend over and over again, for colour choice, speed of delivery and amazing customer service, wouldn’t buy anywhere else now

Just recently discovered Hobbii and fell in love! Decided to learn to crochet and came across this fantastic range of colours, I couldn't resist buying a rainbow palette to start a new blanket. Lovely to work with and a huge choice of colour.
Service was amazing, it seemed no sooner had I put in my order, it was despatched! I will definitely be coming back for more 😊

Very happy with the quality and colour. Great to knit with. I ordered the cotton 8/4 by mistake on my second order but kept it as I look forward to knitting with it too. Good to have the tag end for starting the ball of wool each time. Other wools purchased recently but still need to knit with before I can review.

This is beautifully soft yarn, lovely to work with, and great choice of colour. I love the little Hobbii pull tab at the yarn end, it gives it that extra something special! Just wish I'd ordered the 8/4 as well - which I will be doing shortly... Discovered you on Instagram and very glad I did :)
