Let us introduce the Rebel of the Diablo family: Diablo Wild Print. For all of us who just can’t get enough color in our lives.Diablo Wild Print got its name because… well, because it’s just WILD! It has the most beautiful color changes, which almost makes the yarn look hand dyed.
Like the rest of the Diablo series, Wild Print is a fabulous mohair mix, especially known for being soft, full-bodied but still light and airy. This great quality yarn is spun for Hobbii in Italy. With its beautiful, fluffy glow, Dibalo can be a great and cheaper alternative to a kid silk.
The funky colors in Diablo Wild Print stand out when you knit with it by itself, but it gets really fun, when you use Wild Print in a double stranded project with a solid color as your first strand.
E.g.: Use a white base alongside Wild Print in pale pastels. It almost looks like marshmallows and rainbows! Or use a deep navy blue with Wild Print in bold colors. Remember, a second strand with a great color contrast will accentuate the yarn’s wild print, while a similar color that may already be present in the print can “tame” it.

Wow, I loved the plain Diablo yarns but couldn't resist trying the Wild Prints. I immediately ordered more when they came. The colors are beautiful. They are such a nice addition to other yarns. I have used it with Fluffy Day, Highland Wool and Vintage. Everyone has turned out beautiful. Not only are the colors beautiful, it adds a softness and fluffiness to the projects. Highly recommend
giving it a try, you won't be disappointed.
This yarn is something else entirely! Each strand looks so thin, but is surprisingly strong. The fine mohair adds a unique pop of color. Since it is lace weight, it works up beautifully with other yarns. I used white Baby Wool with the Wild Thing print to make wrist warmers and a headband. The combination of yarns was different than I'm used to working with, but something I enjoyed greatly. Can't wait to try out some of the other colors.
This yarn is beautiful alone and so much fun to add a wonderful color pop working it along with a coordinated solid. Was so pleased not to have problems with knots and able to frog carefully. Have already reordered multiple colors, based on compliments, plan to make gifts throughout the year. Highly recommend!
I got raging pink and the colours are gorgeous! It's easy to work with and even frogs ok! I'm really bad at starting and restarting things or deciding that I actually want to make something else, and I've frogged with this at least 3 times and it wasn't that bad. Very soft.
This is my first time working with mohair. I am using it with Winter Glow. It is easy to manipulate and works nicely with my other yarn. I have been pleasantly surprised by how easy it is to FROG, although I've only had to FROG small groups of stitches.
