4 ply100% Cotton
Pro tip: Before you start working the Twirl cake, run all 4 treads through a small bead to help the threads stay together throughout the project.

Lovely yarn to work with. I have now made 2 very different shawls from these cakes and both have been recived well. The colour changes turn a simple pattern into something very stunning. The yarn is made using 4 stands of colour, but this does not make it difficult to work with. As you go through, the colours change one strand changes at a time to give it that gradual change effect. I now have a small bead permanently in my sewing box ready to use on this yarn, as this helps to avoid it all tangling up. Also if you put it into a yarn bowl, or just a regular desert bowl while using it will make life easier. The middle piece is already out and marked ready for your use and you will find that the remainder of the yarn stays in place quite well while working this way . Give it a go, you will be pleasantly surprised
I purchased some of this yarn a while ago but was slightly put off when it arrived to find that the yarn appeared as four strands. No, I didn't read the blurb beforehand and put off using it. However, I started a new project last night and have been more than pleasantly surprised. Somehow, the four strands doen't separate when you are working on your project (I'm currently crotcheting). It makes up into a lovely, soft fabric. I'm currently using shade 10 which starts off as a rich, dark teal which ihas recently become a firm favourite of mine. I wouldn't hesitate to use this yarn again, especially for spring/summer projects.
I've just started to crochet at 54 years young, and I'm obsessed with colour changing shawls. So I came across Hobbii and their wonderful Twirl yarns. So I purchased 3 (remember, I've never crocheted before!) and when they arrived I couldn't wait to get started on a shawl. Excellent quality yarn and the colour changing cakes are mesmerising. I went for colours 13, 25 & 35, all gorgeous. I'm currently crocheting a Virus Shawl in number 25, light bright blue changing to dark denim blue. They are stunning and I'll certainly purchase again from Hobbii. Delivery time was satisfactory, no problems. Thank you Hobbii!
So much to say, beautiful range of colours, from the bright and bold, through the dusty to the pastel, all gorgeous. So difficult to choose what to buy (I want one of all!!)
Such a pleasure to work with, though it's not a spun yarn, l don't find it splits when crocheting with it.
Lovely quality cotton, the colour is beautifully gradual, instead of a chopped off effect you can get with some other brands.
It gives a lovely soft drape, holds it's shape and colour when washed.
In my opinion you can't go wrong with the Twirl.
I purchased 2 of these over the last few months and couldn't believe how wonderfully beautiful they are. The quality of the cotton is lovely and the colour I found gorgeous. I've recently done a tester using this wool (crocheting) and it has turned out better than expected. I can't wait to finish my upcoming project using this Cotton King Twirl. Really impressed with hobbii and the quality of product for the price. The only website/shop I will be ordering my yarn from! Thanks you guys. xx
