Dahlia Mixo is a beautiful cake yarn with a funky play of colors. The yarn consists of four thin cotton strands in four different colors. Each color runs through the entire skein, which creates a really pretty play of colors with an exciting depth to the shades.
The four strands in Dahlia Mixo aren’t spun together, which gives the yarn its unique depth of color. When you knit or crochet with the yarn, the colors will vary and create a beautiful and vivid play of colors throughout your project.
With the many different color combinations, some offer a large contrast between the four strands, creating an explosion of colors, while other skeins have more discreet colors. But what they all have in common is that the colors of the four strands are well balanced and all complement each other.
Dahlia Mixo can be used for clothes, blankets, and accessories. The yarn is made from 100% lovely and soft cotton, making it perfect for the warmer months, since cotton fibers don’t retain as much heat as, e.g., wool does. Use Dahlia Mixo for projects like a cute summer blouse or a nice shawl. The soft cotton has a little bit of weight to it, which gives things like shawls a nice drape and enhances your beautiful handiwork.
Mixo-mix?? But of course!
You can easily mix Mixo with other cotton cake yarns - giving you lots of opportunities for exciting combinations.
Tip: You can make it easier to work with four strands by running them through a small bead before use. That way, the strands are held together and will stay together while you work.
The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 2076-311). Find more information about the certification on the https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/

I have purchased this yarn in Soft Sunrise and Candyfloss and I am so impressed with it! I have made a few different garments from it and being a plus size woman, I’m always looking for yarn that will hold its structure better. This stuff does not disappoint! It has wonderful stitch definition and it also works great if you want to add fringe to a top due to it being made up of individual threads that aren’t spun together. Beginners may find it difficult to work with because of how easily you can drop a thread but I have to say that I think the little bit of extra hassle there is absolutely worth it. I will be buying this again for sure!
This was my first experience using cotton yarn and also yarn this thin. I had also never used yarn that was 4 stands not twisted together. I saw someone say to add a small bead to help keep them in line. I had no issues! This turned me on to smaller weigh yarn and non twisted yarn. I loved how the color worked up. I made a shawl for a charity auction for a cat rescue and it went for $100!
Love this yarn! I ordered 4 different colors to make shawls and small tops for kiddos. Currently working on the granny Hobbii shawl pattern with the "Soft Sunrise" color and it is just such a treat to work with. I did the small bead thing to help keep the threads together as I crochet and it works beautifully. Hard to put down to leave it long enough to fix a meal...
Absolutely beautiful yarn!! I've made a gorgeous shawl with this and I love it. It's the yarn that made it so pretty. When worked up the colors are stunning. When I first bought yarn like this I thought it might be hard to crochet but it's not. It's really easy to crochet with it. I have several more colors and I know whatever I decide to crochet it will turn out gorgeous.
I really like how strong the yarn feels, and very thin, making it great for summer wraps. I am very excited to use this yarn to make the Summer Wrap on Hobbii patterns. I like the color variety. The red kind of reminds me of the old country table cloths that always came out in the summer. Might use that skein to make a tablecloth for a picnic table. Yay for squishy yarn!
