An unbelievably beautiful wool blend with an amazing depth of color and an extraordinary glow!
We have Hobbii Winter Glow produced at an Italian spinnery that makes color combinations that are out of this world.
The yarn has a loosely spun structure with a slight variation in thickness, and is easy to work with. As your project takes shape, you’ll see layer upon layer emerging in a surprising and fascinating play of beautiful color.
The South American wool used is both warm and soft. Therefore, Winter Glow is suitable for projects such as ponchos, jumpers and cardigans, beanies, mittens, scarves…all with breathtaking colors to spice up any outfit. Otherwise use it to create a unique blanket; a single skein goes a long way with its 700 meters.
Please be aware that the yarn's thickness varies quite a bit, providing the yarn with its very own expression.

Fantastic yarn full of surprises! I bought 3 colors and made swatches immediately. 2 were just as beautiful as I expected. But the 3rd one, the rose/gray/camel looked disappointing. With easy patterns it looked too boring and complicated patterns killed the yarn and were lost in color changes. Tried to combine it with other yarns - still boring. But then I stumbled upon the Noro Color Punch pattern. It was not too plain not too busy and showcased the yarn. So I started knitting a scarf - and then a miracle happened! With a bigger fabric width the color changes started to make sense. And it turned out that it was only the very beginning of the ball that had boring colors. As I knitted on, the color changes were miraculous, each next one better than the one before. Rich yet subtle and elegant. Just fantastic. Can't wait to start knitting with the other two, and will definitely buy more.
I am very happy with this yarn. I bought 4 colours 2 for vests, 1 for cardigan and 1 for a jumper. I normally go pure wool but this blend feels like wool but will be easy care, it grabs onto itself nicely too. The colours are very accurate to those shown on web site. I’ve started to swatch the yarn thinking it worsted weight using 4.5 mm needles and that works well but I think the recommended 5mm leaves a slightly too open weave for me - ok for shawls etc but a bit too open for me for garments like jumpers. I’m actually going to knit up as dk weight using 4 mm needles 22 stitches for 10cm/4inches - I like the finish it gives for a jumper, so it’s amazing really, you can use as dk or worsted and both look good. Very Versatel!
This yarn has really gorgeous colors that are so rich. The garment I made has a lot of depth and character to it because of the varying yarn width and colors. The transitions are pretty quick (sometimes I’d only get through 2DCs before landing on a new color), which is a unique feature that I don’t often come across in other yarns.
The wool content makes it warm, but the acrylic keeps it from being too irritating. Really, it’s very lovely, and the skein goes a long way! I was able to make a pretty tall mobius wrap, a matching mobius ear warmer, and a hat, with some scraps leftover. You definitely get a good bang for your buck with this yarn.
Beautiful soft yarn with the warmth of wool, this came together beautifully in my project. The little smatterings of sparkle made the cardigan I worked up have an extra POP! The yarn has a beautiful varying texture, which gives a great look to the garment, however it would be hard to work with for a beginner because it is important to maintain tension across the alternating ply of the yarn to keep the garment aligned. I love this yarn and will definitely be using it again
Beautiful yarn! But my 5mm hook was too big for the pattern I was trying. My skein was about 50% 3 weight, 30% #4 and 20% #2. A 4 or maybe 4.5 mm is better. The yarn is so lovely I will find another pattern rather than try a different yarn...and I love the big skein too. I ended up buying several colors. (I would have bought more if my job hadn’t been lost in the pandemic). The photos of the actual yarn colors were pretty accurate.
