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
I bought this yarn for the first time and ordered more straight away, The colours are lovely, knits up well with very even stitch quality. Have made 2 pairs of socks so far, have washed one pair with really good results, no shrinkage or pilling and soft finish. Very comfortable to wear too! Have not dealt with Hobbii before but am very impressed by their 1st class customer service.
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.
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 haven't started to knit socks with this yarn yet but it feels soft to the touch and I am sure it will knit up beautifully. The colours are very good but I really must finish some other things before I start on this.
I bought this yarn for the first time and I am very impressed. It is very easy to knit with and the colours are beautiful. The yarn is soft. I have already ordered more yarn. I am impressed with Hobbii's service.
Beautiful colours, lovely and soft, came in the post quicker than delivery date, was very happy with the whole experience, this is the second time I've ordered from hobbii and will definitely be ordering again
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.
