Sport55% Cotton, 45% Acrylic
Soft, wonderful cotton yarn combined with acrylic which results in a lightweight and solid end product. The blend is similar to our lovely color changing Twister – same content, just one-colored.
If you like Twister, then the opportunities of making creative projects have just multiplied to infinity. Twister Solid is like a dear, little helper of 3.5 oz. (100 g). With this yarn on your needles/hook, you can add a one-colored edge to shawls and scarves. Or create stripes with Twister Solid, so you can prolong the color transition of twister. Or knit/crochet a blouse or cardigan in Twister and add one-colored sleeves or add a rib edge with Solid.
The possibilities are endless and we look forward to see what you will create with the yarn.
Originally, Twister Solid was thought of as an addition to Twister. But why play second fiddle!
Twister Solid is very well-suited for e.g. blouses and cardigans and other types of clothing. It does not have the same weight as 100% cotton, but it feels light and is soft and comfortable against the skin. Furthermore, it is ideal for kids’ clothing since it is easy to wash and stays neat.
PLEASE NOTE: Suggested knitting gauge is approx. 26 stitches x 35 rows with US needles size 2.5 (3 mm). On the yarn label it reads 22 stitches with US needle size 1.5-6 (2.5-4 mm). Twister Solid 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.
Besides this, another unfortunate mistake appears on the label. The yarn consists of 55% cotton and 45% acrylic. We apologize for the mistake!
The Twister Solid colors are found in the following Twister variations:
152 is available in Twister 34, 36, 44, 47, 56 & Twister Summer 02
PLEASE NOTE that Twister and Twister Solid will never match up 100%, since they are dyed in seperate dye lots.
The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 2076-311). Find more information about the certification on the https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/

Such lovely yarns, very soft !! I ordered some of the Twister Solids to edge the Big Twister yarn colors. I really appreciated the fact that they showed the color compatability using the twister solids with the bigger twister yarn. I'm making a few of the granny cardigans in various colors...I got the pattern on Hobbii's site..under pattern suggestions for the Twister yarn ..very easy and fast pattern and should be very cute when I get finished... I'm making cardigans for both my Aunt and cousin to take and wear this September when they take a trip to Ireland, and one for my Dad's wife to throw on , and lastly I will also make one for myself !! Very happy with the drape and softness of this yarn... I love the solid colors too..I got the dark grey, black, and lilac colors... So very pleased with this yarn, and the customer service will definitely buy again and again from Hobbii !! Lovely yarns !!
I have bought multiple colours of the Twister solid and am making a granny square type blanket. I love this yarn! I like the fact it is blended with the acrylic as I hope it will give my finished project better shape retention and also easy machine washable care. It is incredibly soft and easy to work with. It's also a lovely light weight which is perfect for the tropical climate I live in. This is my new favourite yarn, and I am finding more future projects that I will be using Twister solid for.
This yarn is beautiful! I know that it's meant to compliment the Twister striped cakes, but it was so lovely on its own I couldn't help but use it to make a gorgeous shawl. I love the easy to find center pull tab. The texture is amazing and worked up quickly for a fingering weight yarn. I got so many compliments on the color while working on this project. 1 skein was just enough for a small shawlette, but I'm so glad I ordered more because I already have some new patterns in mind for this yarn.
Lovely blend of cotton and acrylic. I ordered the 118 Amber after seeing all these lovely images of rust colored fair isle patterned sweaters and it was exactly as pictured. The perfect mix of red and brown and somehow still a neutral wardrobe color. I wanted a fingering weight yarn for my sweater as I am a larger person and bulky worsted weight just makes me look like someone's sad, over plump aunt from the 80s. Sport ended up being the right weight.
I am so happy with my purchase! Beautiful yarn. Beautiful colors. Accurately matches the colors online! It is so soft and appears to be a high quality blend! I am planning to use the solids to make Phoenix blanket by Hooked on Sunshine. I have searched all over the US for a cotton/acrylic blend that is lightweight too! I have finally found the best yarn for this project! Thank you for making a great yarn and having super sales prices!
