Light Worsted, DK100% Premium Acrylic
Beautiful color gradients on a wonderfully soft yarn. For Butterfly we have selected a coordinating palette of muted colors in a hand dyed look. The colors flow into each other in a single long gradient, so the sections are about the same length as you work your way through the skein.
Butterfly is spun from a premium anti-pilling acrylic that is soft, smooth and easy to work with. You will notice it doesn’t pill to the same degree as some acrylic tends to do.
Create lovely crocheted or knitted blouses, blankets, scarves and so on. The yarn has enough weight to give the finished object beautiful drape.
The yarn is spun from a so-called anti-pilling acrylic. This type of fiber is constructed in a special way that makes the fibers less likely to pill, like acrylic usually does. Anti-pilling is neither a treatment or process added to the yarn; the difference is in the construction of the special fiber material that the yarn is spun from.
Please note that the colors may have rubbed off on each other during the dye process. There can be small speckles of darker color on the lighter colors in the skein. This is perfectly normal and will add a dashing effect to your finished project.
The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 2076-311). Find more information about the certification on the https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/.

I am using this yarn to make an blanket with 25 different stitches. The yarn is very soft and easy to work with. My stitch work is well defined and I can easily see the pattern in it. I am not finished yet, but I wonder if this is the best yarn for a blanket but I think it might make a nice bed cover for decoration and not warmth. I will update when I have completed my blanket. However, I am thinking this yarn might be great for summer top or a lightweight sweater.
This yarn is delightfully soft and wonderful to work with. I have made two blankets and a bandanna cowl using this Butterfly yarn and love the results of each. The blankets are so soft and squishy, and very nice to cuddle up under. The colour gradients in the Morpho and Holly Blue made a nice wide stripe pattern in the blankets. The Banana cowl is very cozy and warm around the neck and not at all itchy. I love this yarn and definitely plan to use it again.
This yarn is so dreamy! I can crochet smooth, even stitches without any splitting. I am working on a shawl with a moss stitch. It works up very soft. The colors are rich and vibrant: Bronze Copper #08. It’s been almost magical how the stripes just line up beautifully in the triangle shawl. I ordered two more skeins in a different color for no good reason; I just want to crochet with this again!
This yarn is amazing. It is soft and the color combinations are lovely and transform smoothly from one color to the next. I'm crocheting a beautiful triangle shawl with color #3 using the lattice stich and one cake will be enough to make a shawl large enough to wrap around my 5 foot 3 inch 170 pound frame. I can't wait until colors #7 and #14 are back in stock.
This yarn came in my very first Hobbii shipment and I didn't quite know what I was getting. I am thoroughly impressed - so much so that after working with it for an evening I came back to the website to purchase even more. It works up quickly, is very soft and just looks excellent. The colors are beautiful too. Great job Hobbii, I can't wait for my next order!
