A light and soft mohair blend, will add a fluffy glow to your knitting. A yarn for those of you who are crazy about that snuggle mohair-look, and want some subtle volume.
Hobbi Diablo is a great, affordable alternative to kid silk. I can be knitted as a single thread or as an additional thread to many other types of yarn, if you want to add a little extra filling.
Do you want to knit snuggly sweaters on thicker needles? Then we recommend knitting with 2, 3, or even more, threads of Diablo simultaneously. How many threads you use, depends only on how thick a thread you want, or which knitting tension you want to achieve.
Diablo is obviously suitable for color-experimenting, as you can certainly put together a single thread consisting of different colors, thus creating subtle nuances, for example knit with unique stripes.

Being a spinner , I admit to being an all natural fiber enthusiast . I purchased this in hopes of using it along with a worsted wool for a long jacket . Temptation to give it test drive didn't take much when Read the great reviews & loved the many color options . The bottom line savings was so significant, I ordered two bags in two colors . I was truly pleasantly surprised! Visually , the yarn looks just like Kid silk . The colors are gorgeous . Ivan feel a slight difference in the "hand" of
Diablo , but Ithink this was barely there when I did my swatch ( 30 min after it arrived :) I held it along with a fingering merino . I will buy this again , particularly for really large projects - There's zero itch factor ( for me) very soft , nice amt of halo -Go buy a bunch with confidence- much fun !
The yarn in the photos look fluffy enough and I imagined they were nice. I just received my order and when I opened the box - which by the way got here very quickly - I was happy to see that the yarn is so soft and so fluffy you just can’t stop petting it! I thrilled and will be getting some more. I love this company because you can get free patterns and they make it well, too easy to buy the yarn needed for each project. I ❤️ Hobbii!
If you order from them you won’t be sorry. #newfaninTexas
I used the original Diablo that had 30% nylon rather than polyamide (if there is a difference). I used it as an alternative to kid silk haze as I can't afford that yarn. It was a pleasure to work with, and it added such a nice feel to the garment. It easy to work with ball especially since it is so fine and so fuzzy I worried it would tangle. I've worked with other mixed fiber and fluffy yarn that knotted, but didn't have any issues with this one. I would definitely use this yarn again.
I purchase Diablo for all my mohair needs as the other options are out of my price range. All my pieces are beautiful.
There is an initial prick (not itch for me) of the yarn but it is minor, and I forget about it a few minutes into wearing it. I also block my garments in hair conditioners, which I think smooths out the mohair a little.
Have bought multiple time, will buy again! (Hobbi please send me some yarn support :D )
I have used some gorgeous Diablo in 'peacock' held with with a twister yarn in a similar colour The colour is incredible! The two yarns feel beautiful together, and gave my crochet shawl a truly luxurious look. It is also affordable enough to be used generously for gifts. I found that they were a little tricker to crochet than the cotton alone, but the effect was well worth the effort. I am certain to use this yarn again!
