The many great qualities of yarn for shawls
Common for all the yarns, we recommend for shawls, is that they have incredibly beautiful color transitions which add a unique look to the shawls. Typically, cake-yarns are used since they are known for being large and round skeins in which the color transition changes from the inside to the outside. They are available in wool, cotton, acrylic and a combination of these, and they are available in various yarn weights and color combinations. There is something for you who prefer bright colors as well as you who prefer the more soft colors.
One thing you have to consider, is the choice of material. If you prefer natural materials, you should choose wool which is known for being a naturally temperature regulating material that can absorb up to 35% moisture without it feeling cold or wet. Do you need to be able to wash your shawl in the washing machine, we recommend cotton and/or acrylic. Acrylic is often praised for being sturdy and extremely durable, and then you can wash it over and over again without it affecting color, shape or longevity.
Great for everyday use
The special yarns we recommend for shawls can, of course, also be used for a ton of other knitting- and crocheting projects. Besides ponchos and scarves, you can also use the yarn for creating a soft blanket for the couch or the stroller, a pretty little baby dress with beautiful color transitions or perhaps a skirt in summer colors.
Please remember, you can always find a large selection of patterns on our site.

What our customers say about Yarn for shawls
I am delighted with all the yarn I have purchased from Hobbii. I have made shawls in in Many Colours, cookie and Twister and lollipop. The colours are excellent and blend well as they run from the ball and the yarn is so soft. I have had compliments on those which are made but not sold yet because I have made them for Dementia UK sending all my profit to the charity. Many thanks, I am so glad I found you and I will be back for more shortly. Best wishes,
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.
