Wool is often blended with other types of yarn to utilize the best properties from both types of yarn. For example, the coarser types of yarn have the advantage that they are stronger and more durable, whereas the finer yarn fibres make for a soft and comfortable yarn.
The many properties of a wool blend
Common blends are Alpaca and wool, cotton and merino wool, wool and nylon and wool and acrylic. These blends are all sold at Hobbii, and if these blends are the ones you’re after, you’ve come to the right place.
Wool blends can be used for a lot of different projects, only your imagination sets the limit. For example, a blend of merino wool and cotton is great for crocheting or knitting blankets for children and adults alike. It’s especially good for children as they can have difficulties controlling their body temperature - this yarn can help with this, so it's neither too hot or too cold for them. On the other hand, a wool and nylon blend is a much more durable and hard-wearing blend, which is therefore very suitable for knitting socks. The nylon yarn gives it a strong abrasion-resistance, while the wool, on the other hand, contributes with a lot of warmth. So, if you are looking for a cosy project, then this is definitely the blend for you.
Good for everyday life
Wool yarn is available in many different varieties and thicknesses that you can explore as time goes on. There are both thick and thin types of wool, which makes it perfect for combining with other types of yarn, depending on what you wish to make. In addition, the softness differs as well, and this is due to various factors such as what animal the yarn is from, how its living conditions are and where on the animal the wool is from. Depending on what you prefer as a person and what project you want to embark on, the different types of wool can be used for many different things and therefore also have many different attributes.

What our customers say about Wool Blend
It is one of my favourite yarns for hat making! It's quite dense and the colours are great! So vivid! They never disappoint me! The change of colour happens gradually in smooth grading. Perfect for 3 mm (even 3.5mm) crochet hooks. Sometimes it gets slightly thicker when the new colour is starting, but it really is a minor difference, not affecting my knitting at all.
My daughter bought me some of this as she knows I love variegated yarns and sock knitting. It is just gorgeous. Soft, easy to handle, and makes really pretty socks with no effort on the patterning.
awesome yarn for soft warm socks, i got some of the colours and some of the happy feet xl so my socks can have contrasting cuff heel and toes, so easy to work with, i will be back for more.
This lovely wool is very soft and the colors are beautiful. The stitch definition is very nice too. I have only started and am very excited at how the whole top will come out. Thank you.
Very nice yarn for sock knitting and I am delighted with the pattern which is made automatically. It was not difficult to match the yarn so that the socks have the same patterns.
I am planning on knitting Frank Gehry (architect) Tree of Life socks for my son and this wool will be excellent! Then lots of other socks as Christmas presents. ...
Such a wonderful range of colours in this yarn. Haven't made anything yet but looking forward to making some cosy soft socks.
I love my Altai! Sooooo soft and bright, very nice in work. I made fingerless crocheted mittens and it look fab!
Just started knitting socks with this yarn, lovely and soft, knits well. Will definitely buy more in future.
Great sock yarn, knits very smoothly. Got the Antarctica too. Love the selection of colours in both.
