Yarn Made of Polyamide

Polyamide fiber is sometimes known as nylon. It is a material that is often used in yarn, because it is durable, very light and elastic. These qualities make it a great material to mix with other yarn materials, such as wool and cotton, to create more durable yarn blends.  

The Benefits of Polyamide Yarn

Polyamide is a synthetic fiber that is mixed with natural fibers. Synthetic fibers are often referred to as artificial and oil-based fibers and are made of nylon (polyamide), acrylic or polyester. Polyamide yarn is often used in sock yarn, because of its high durability and the fact that it is machine washable and, therefore, very practical. It is also a material that maintains its shape, so that your socks will stay in their knitted sock shape. Furthermore, polyamide yarn can be washed several times and will not shrink in wash. These are many of the reasons why this yarn is, as a very popular material in yarn blends. 

At Hobbii we only have a few yarns made of 100% polyamide but we have a wide sections of polyamide yarn blends mixed with, for instance wool, alpaca or acrylic fibers. The blend of polyamide fibers and other yarn fibers gives you the best of both, and often results in a more durable and practical material to work with. 

Easy Yarn for Knitting and Crochet

If you are new to knitting or crochet, then yarn blends made with polyamide is a good yarn type to start with, as it is very easy to work with. A very popular item to knit with polyamide is socks, but there are also many other knitting and crochet projects you can start, such as making clothing for children.

What our customers say about Polyamide

Margaret Nunn

My grandson delivered my Happy Feet and crochet animal book - looking through the book he picked out a dragon for himself and (first the cow) but I am now crocheting an alpaca by adapting the sheep pattern I am also planning to use some of the wool stash I now have to make some super hippy style winter tops so look out for more orders of yarn from me I am hoping the orders roll in


I was a little concerned because I usually crochet with DK yarns and size 5 and larger hooks and was not sure about the yarn and a size 3.5 as recommended. However, I am using a size 4 hook ( UK) and the scarf is crocheting up beautifully- the colour really comes to life and it will be a gorgeous present for my daughter. Can't wait to try out the other colours in the range.

Jacqui Bates

Bought 2 different colours for new socks. So smooth and easy to knit. Ideal for the knitting machine as well. I have ordered from Hobbii several times and their service is first class. Love the free shawl pins. Ideal for a shawl I have just started.

Sue Parker

This is a really beautiful yarn. Before I received it, I was a little concerned that the metallic strip would be really rough and itchy but it's absolutely fine and the yarn works up lovely and soft. I'll definitely be ordering again


This is a lovely sock yarn. Knits up evenly and no knots in the yarn to deal with. Enough colours to make Fairisle socks and they are really cosy and comfortable in wear, and being machine washable makes them easy care as well.

Anne Bond

I have just finished using my first batch of Moonlight yarn and I .edu a shawl. It was lovely to use. The colours group together well. I am now about to start the second one. If I can get a picture for You will send later.

Jayne Alecock

Excellent product, beautiful colours which have given a great effect on my garment, very easy to work with compared to other similar products. Will definitely buy again if I have a project that requires this type of yarn.


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!

Mary Banks

I have made 4 snoods using this yarn. It is lovely when completed. Very fine and took a little time to get used to crocheting it. Everyone was thrilled with the snoods, they are beautifully soft and sluffy, a hit.


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.
