It all started with a cotton mesh tube hugging some lovely wool and acrylic fibers inside of it, this is how we created Portobello

Portobello is a Made in Italy yarn with a chainette structure. The loose fibers are blown into the hollow tube and slightly stick out of the mesh, which gives the yarn volume and a bit of fluff. 

The always off-white cotton tube creates an elegant contrast with the brighter or more subtle colors of the loose fibers. 

This yarn will keep you warm but fresh thanks to the cotton and the projects created with it will be lightweight and soft thanks to its structure. Portobello can be worked with 4 mm knitting needles (US 6) and 5 mm (US H-8) crochet hook. It will be a great option for beginners as its structure will prevent the yarn from splitting. 

Need some inspiration? We recommend taking advantage of Portobello’s softness by making cozy pullovers, vests, sweaters, and scarves both for adults and children. 

We are sure that Portobello will blow your mind.

Soft and plush! It's very easy to knit with and has held up to multiple froggings. Currently knitting a raglan sweater with it and one skein has gotten me a lot further than I thought. Will update once the sweater is finished to comment on wearability/next to skin softness but so far no complaints.


I can not wait to turn this yarn into something beautiful. When I say it is soft it is sooooooooft. Like a bundle of cloud. The antique rose is a vintage subdued shade. Adding to the delicate quality of this yarn.


So I like it. I don't love it. The color wasn't what I thought it would be. I'm hoping it works up better. Softness though is lovely and squish factor is AMAZING.


This yarn is so so soft. I can't wait to make a baby hat. My new grandbaby will sport it well. I can't to order some more.
