We have fallen head over heels for Twister, a really soft cake-yarn with beautiful color transitions, that develop into festive, subtle or crazy wild color combinations.

Perhaps you already know cake-yarns from e.g. Mayflower and Cotton Kings’ Twirls. If you crave a treat, you should know that “cake” is just a term for the way the yarn is packaged. Our own Twister excels by being twined which makes the yarn easy to work with.

The amazing colors unfold as you go and it is a true pleasure to watch the slow transitions of the colors. Here you get a whopping 1094 yards (1 km) of yarn and one skein is enough, if you wish to knit or crochet a shawl or a scarf. The fabulous cotton is combined with acrylic which adds a lighter and more solid end result.

Twister is perfect for shawls and scarves, but it has a lot of potential uses. It is easy to care for since it is machine washable. Please note, the yarn is tied together with a small knot where the threads change colors.

Generally, you use more yarn for crocheting than you do for knitting. So you might experience that you cannot use the entire skein when knitting e.g. a shawl. Of course, it depends on the project and the pattern, you choose. Normally, it is not a problem to have too much yarn, but please consider, if you prefer to start with the thread from the center or from the outside part of your Twister cake-yarn skein when starting on your project.

You can combine it with a one-colored Twister for e.g. an edge on a shawl, for sleeves or for a rib edge on a blouse or a poncho. Check out Twister Solid right here.

PLEASE NOTE that Twister and Twister Solid will never match up 100%, since they are dyed in seperate dye lots.


NOTE: Unfortunately, a mistake appears on a few labels. The correct information is 55% cotton + 45% acrylic.

Suggested knitting gauge is approx. 26 stitches x 35 rows with US needles size 2.5 (3 mm). Twister is a very flexible yarn which can be knitted tightly with US needle size 1.5 (2.5 mm), so you get a knitting gauge of approx. 28 stitches. You can also knit it looser with US needle size 6 (4 mm) and get approx. 22 stitches for e.g. extra soft shawls and scarves. Thus, you can experiment with the knitting gauge and easily vary it with various needle sizes depending on the project you are about to start. Try making a small gauge swatch of 4” x 4” (10 x 10 cm), so you can measure your knitting gauge before you start. Then you have the option to adjust it, so it matches the pattern or the gauge, you wish.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

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

I came across Hobbii online thru instagram suggestion. I had been looking for yarn for a project for a long time. This project in particular needed at least 800 yards to complete and I dislike having to join more yarn in the middle of my project. However in the US i would expect finding a yarn cake over 800 yards to be easy but no its not the few you do find always are way too over priced as well. After finding Hobbii and coming across this yarn i fell in love not only was the length and quality great but i had been searching for a purple to back faded yarn for years. Its not a common color change in my area at least. After receiving this yarn cake i was hooked the quality was outstanding the colors were vibrant and exactly like pictured. The yarn was soft and easy to work with. I am still making my project but i look forward to sharing a picture of it completed. I am now a happy member on Hobbii and will always look here first for my projects.


As a newbie to crochet the only yarn I had worked with was acrylic medium. I had wanted to learn for years but every time I tried I just kept getting my fingers tied in knots with yarn - LOL! I made a few baby blankets with simple stitches but wasn't really happy with the result. I saw some ads for Hobbi online and after looking at their yarn for quite some time I decided to take the plunge. I was worried that being in Canada the shipping and exchange rates would be killers but I was pleasantly surprised. The package arrived as scheduled and I started working with it right away. It did take me a little bit of time of get used to using such a delicate (compared to what I had been using) yarn but I quickly fell in love with it. It is so soft and easy to work with, the colors in the cakes graduate so beautifully and the drape of the finished afghan is amazing. I love this yarn and will most certainly purchase more.


I am obsessed with this yarn and now have several cakes in my stash. It has great drape and pretty colors. I made a large shawl using the Jungle colorway, and was pleased with how light and drapey it is, despite the size. The yarn is made of 4 thin threads plied together, and the color changes as each thread is swapped out one at a time. The color changes are long, and give a dappled look and a subtle stripe as colirs change, rather than a gradual, blended color change. One note, as threads are swapped, there is a tiny knot. The knot is part of the way the yarn changes color, and is easily hidden. I am about to start another project wuth Twister, and look forward to working with it again!

I purchased Hobbii Twister to make a shawl for my sister and my friends upcoming birthdays. I wanted a quality yarn and equally affordable. I first learned about this yarn on one of my FB crochet groups and after a little research I soon found myself ordering 3 cakes and some extra yarn as well. The color options, the ability to LOOK at actual projects made with the colors you are considering made it an easy decision to buy from Hobbii. The yarn came a little earlier than expected , I was updated from Hobbii at all times from the order from start to finish. Quality yarn affordable prices, extraordinary customer service. I WILL be buying from here over and over. Thank you Hobbi. Tina


I usually avoid cotton yarns. I find them hard on my hands and I don't usually like the heavy drape of the finished fabric. The colours in this yarn are irresistible though, so I took a chance that the acrylic content would make up for my cotton problems. It really does! This yarn is easy to work, and it gives some of the drape of a cotton fabric but with the lightness of an acrylic yarn. The colours are just as vibrant as the photos led me to expect, and the 'easy start' tab that avoids the dreaded yarn barf is an extra nice touch. I never thought I would actually enjoy working a cotton-based yarn, but I will be eagerly watching for the next time this is on sale!
