Select Color:

A thick and lovely 8/8 yarn in 100% cotton. Cotton 8/8 is spun with 8 threads, which makes it double as thick as a 4-threaded cotton yarn (8/4). Cotton Kings 8/4 is produced in 100% pure and lovely cotton and comes in a large assortment of nice, fresh colors.

Cotton 8/8 is suitable for pretty much any knitting and crocheting projects where you want a sturdy and strong cotton. It is perfect for Summer clothing and interiors, e.g towels, dish cloths, amigurumi, teddies and throws.

Be aware that the yarn can be machine-washed and as with 100% cotton yarn, it is even suitable for boil washing. This is especially important, if you use the yarn for dishcloths, towns, etc. On the label we recommend 40°C, but only because the heat can make the colors fade in the long run.

this is one of my most used yarns <3 it's great soft yarn, perfect for summer clothing, plushies, and various items around the house. the DK weight is super versatile. I love how many colors in comes in. It double strands nicely, and I've had gorgeous results double stranding a series of colors to create a smoother gradient than I could with just the available colors. I've dyed the white 01 with RIT dyes, and had great results making my custom colors for my most picky projects.

I Have bough a 'lot' of this yarn! My first project was in the gorgeous sky blue. I was so happy to find that the dye lots were consistent, really noticeable and important when you are using a plain colour.I have made a pretty little pram blanket with it for a baby shower. It works up beautifully, and quickly too as a DK. I chose this yarn for a baby as it is machine washable and durable. Looking forward to using my other batch!

Received three balls of Cotton King 8/8 in golden yellow, and plan to make a summer hat.. The thickness and durability of the yarn should suit this purpose. The color is lovely, and I will likely wait for the grey to be available again as a contrast color for a Rose motif. I appreciate how affordable Hobbii makes the postage - it makes it possible to come back when additional materials are needed


Fiona

This is a nice, smooth cotton. I purchased it because it had the colours I wanted for my project, and they arrived very true to what I expected. I'd say it's a moderately soft cotton; a little bit of roughness to it, but not too much. It's a good fit for amigurumi, or practical objects, but I probably wouldn't choose it for garments worn against the skin. Perfect for the right project, though.


Catherine

Love this yarn! Got it and the rainbow cotton 8/8 for a project (cardigan). The colors were very vibrant in person (online they show as a bit more pastel). I'd say the cotton kings 8/8 is smoother, but both are the softest cotton I've used and work up very similarly. I usually go for the rainbow 8/8 and will add in cotton kings skeins when there's a color that's unavailable for the rainbow.
