Amigo is a really soft yarn with wonderful, airy volume. It is produced from 100% HB acrylic of a very high quality and comes in an enormous selection of colors.

HB stands for High-bulk. It is a production technique that uses steam and pressure to make the fibers contract a little and curl so that they become fuller. The result is a light and soft yarn that is both comfortable to work with and to wear on the body.

Amigo is easy to work with in knit as well as crochet, and a little goes a long way! There is a whopping 175 meters in 50 grams. It is absolutely perfect for soft, warm blankets, but also lovely for things like sweaters, hats and scarves that will never be itchy. The airy yarn will keep you warm and won’t get too heavy.

The entire Amigo series is distinguished by its light volume, uniform structure and great durability. It can be machine washed at 30°C, perfect for everyday use. Colors and shape will hold up to wash after wash. If you’re allergic to wool, or if you want to opt out of animal fibers for other reasons, you can replace it with Amigo for a soft and lovely result.

The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 2076-311). Find more information about the certification on the https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/

I don’t knit with acrylic as a rule because I don’t usually like the way it feels in my hands. To be honest, I ordered Amigo (light worsted) when my original plans failed, and I am not disappointed! I am knitting a baby blanket for my first grand-niece/nephew, following a pattern that is simple but that uses 17 colors — I was able to easily choose colors from the huge selection and the yarn is soft and lovely to work with! I’m not a very good knitter and despite the simple pattern I did a lot of tinking early on and then decided to rip it out and start anew; the yarn held up beautifully through that and is no worse for the wear now that I am knitting the pattern once more! It is soft, it is not at all splitty, and I am confident that even with my lousy knitting the end result will be lovely. Even if you think you don’t like acrylic, give this one a go, you won’t regret it!

AMIGO is my second order from Hobbii to the Northeast USA. Ordered a dozen different colours for a four pointed turtle neck poncho I am designing. Was extremely happy to be in receipt of correct order in just four days along with nifty surprise gifts; tiny digital row counter and a wrapped candy ! Dare say, would have preferred stitch markers instead ! AMIGO quality is precisely what I had envisioned and the colours are ALMOST spot on. Number 38 is correctly named CURRY as it is more curry than golden as seen and Number 51 named MARSALA is truly more BRICK. Number 53 named Bordeaux is more reddish than depicted and should be named EGGPLANT, which is nicer than expected in any case. The aforementioned a tiny bit disappointing, but perfectly fine for my project. Am looking forward to posting a foto of the finished poncho when it's completed. THANK YOU Hobbii !

I really like this yarn I got quite a few colors so I can definitely speak on the color compared to the pictures. For reference I have an iPhone. All colors are slightly darker in person so that is something to keep in mind but still very similar except delicate rose it is not the same what so ever. It is more vibrant like a soft neon pink not really light like the picture. This was a problem when it came to the blanket I was making the bright color would have looked bad and out of place. I contacted hobbii and they said it was the right color. I have to place another order for a different color now because return shipping would have been $30 and that would have been pointless. Other than that I think this is really nice yarn.

I would say this is a lighter DK than other yarns, but weight is such a spectrum. Very (VERY) soft without any of the fuzziness normally found in inexpensive acrylic yarns. A pleasure to crochet with as it doesn't split on the hook, doesn't drag or 'squeak', and is incredibly soft and plush. I usually prefer thicker yarns but needed thinner for some delicate pieces and the drape of this was fantastic. You can't go wrong with the amigo line and I love that they have so many color choices and that they are consistent across the product line

Not gonna lie. I was pretty skeptical about buying something from over seas these days. But I’m so happily impressed. The yarn arrived faster than I was told and in perfect condition (though the FedEx bag was torn), no fault of Hobbii. The yarn itself was wonderful. I haven’t found anything like it at any store near me. It crocheted perfectly and I was so happy I purchased a whole bunch more! The colors are great and hold fast, and they have so much variety I’m thrilled!
