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.

The Most Popular Mayflower Yarn
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.
This Mayflower's cotton yarn is made of 100% soft cotton and is available in many different colors. The popular cotton yarn 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. Hobbii has a large selection of cotton yarn. See all cotton yarn her.
Another classic yarn from mayflower is the very popular Easy Care yarns. This yarn comes in many different types. If you are looking for something colorful, buy Easy Care Print, but if you prefer thick yarn, you might like Easy Care Big. A common characteristic of all these yarns, is that they are all made of 100% merino wool. Merino wool is a great material for both knitting and crochet. See our entire collection of merino yarn here.
This is one of Mayflower's most gorgeous yarns. The yarn consist of 76% soft mohair wool and 24% silk. This yarn is great, if you are planning to make a sweater or a cardigan, as the result looks very luxurious. Many knitters choose to combine this yarn with others.

What our customers say about Mayflower
Beautiful yarn. I have used it to make a lovely lighweight baby blanket - which I hope to upload a photo of once it's finished! This was amongst the items from my first order with this company. I cna't rate them highly enough. The quality of the products is brilliant and the speed of delivery is amazing (in my case posted to the UK with a very reasonable p&p charge) I will definitely use them again - a lovely company to deal with!
Lovely to knit with. Very soft (I’m knitting a waffle blanket for a baby) and easy to knit, no pilling, and it’s machine washable and can even be tumbledried so perfect for baby stuff. It’s three ply and doesn’t untwist during the knitting - or even during the un-knitting and re-knitting which I’ve unfortunately had to do a couple of times.
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.
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
Amazing yarn, I love using it for my amigurumi, the range of colours are lovely especially all the pastel shades they make lovely baby items like octopus for a preemie and teething rings, couldn’t recommend them more than I do
I am knitting some socks for my self at the moment with this wool, I bought a sock loom and this wool is ideal lovely colours and I love the pattern that's forming as I knit . I would recommend this wool excellent quality .
This is the first time I am using proper sock yarn for socks as usually some leftovers were used but I am so happy and pleased I tried this, it feels very nice and good quality. These are going to be my best socks ever!
This is beautiful yarn to knit with. The colours are wonderful even my husband commented on the colour. I am not a speed knitter so I have not finished a pair of socks yet but I am really happy with the results so far.
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 .
Really happy with my second delivery of cotton yarn, the quality is amazing. I have never really used cotton to make amigurumi before but I am now hooked, I have had to limit my self to one purchase a month.
