Great yarn but this is NOT a bulky 5 as the label states. I am in the USA and order several skeins of different colors. Upon getting it and working one into a cabled hood I am very pleased with it. Works up well, it looks like a roving wool yarn but is acrylic. Very soft and the color blends are fabulous. This yarn in USA standards would be classified as a light worsted weight 4 yarn. I experimented with several crochet hook sizes. A K hook was definitely to big, a J hook is about the biggest I would use on the yarn. Ideally an I9 crochet hook is the perfect size to use on this yarn. I do not know what size knitting needles work best as I do not knit. But still this yarn is wonderful! The color schemes are perfect for shawls, scarves, hats and any pattern blankets that are worked in a continuous square, like the Galaxy, Mandala or Planet Earth pattern.
Just starting my third project using Cookie, and I am now a certified Cookie fan! Into my fifth ball, and not a knot to be seen. The colours are soft, even the bolder colours, and the transitions perfectly subtle.
It has that acrylic feel to it when you are working it up, but it isn’t stiff, harsh, or rough on the hands like some acrylics.
I’ve used an aluminium hook and a wooden hook and the yarn glides easily over both. I haven’t tried a plastic or acrylic hook with it yet, so can’t comment on how that combo works.
The completed items have a good drape and feel soft and warm against the skin. I’ve used it with one strand of Alpaca Blaze, and let me tell you… that is a match made in heaven!
So far Cookie has excelled when knitted and crocheted. I’ll try weaving with it and see if it can make the trifecta 😉
About mid-year last year, I ordered Cookie yarn in the colorway Romance. When my yarn arrived I was so excited as this was the first time I had ordered with Hobbii. The ordering here is so easy and simple. When I grabbed the first cake, I was really happy. The yarn is just so soft and crochets up really nicely. I had no breaks, no snags, no thin strands then thick strands, just nice consistent strands that pulled really easy from the center and I just started crocheting. So I just ordered 2 more cakes of Romance and I ordered 5 cakes of Menrhol. That colorway is going to be a cardigan from a Celtic cable crochet pattern I’ve been wanting to make for some time. I hope they keep making Cookie and possibly bringing on more colorways. I just adore this yarn.
I make prayer shawls for our church ministry group and Cookie has become my favorite yarn to use. The first time I ordered it I was nervous because it says that the diameter varied, but the colors were so beautiful I had to take the chance. The yarn crochets up wonderfully. The variety of colors is beautiful and the texture is perfect for the shawls. One cake is just the right size using an I hook. The only negative is also a plus. The yarn has a soft, slightly fuzzy finish which makes it difficult to frog if I make a misstitch. But still worth it for the finished effect. Ordering from Hobbii is easy and I always receive my orders promptly (faster than from most US companies 😄).
I ordered this yarn, based on reviews and it had the color ways I was looking at making.
This yarn is fantastic, soft, easy to work with.
I got the liquorice.
The color way is exactly what I was envisioning.
Plus enough yarn to make a long scarf and a hat.
The friend I am making it for is allergic to w/o old.
So 100% acrylic to boot.
I live in the USA.
The shipping was faster than I anticipated.
Plus a free gift.
This was my first order from Hobbii.
It will not be my.last.
I really hope that they are not clearsncing this yarn out.
I will buy more if the color way is the right one for my project.
THANK YOU HOBBII!❤
