Friends Wheel is the lovely combination of the softest cotton with the lightest acrylic yarn.
Cotton brings strength, softness, and durability, whereas acrylic contributes to giving the yarn vibrant colors and a nice feel to the touch.
Friends Wheel is made out of 4 threads and will create a gorgeous drape when worked up. You can now unleash your creativity by planning fabulous lace projects such as tops, cardigans, shawls, scarves, etc. If you prefer a fuller look, you can always stick to the recommended needle/hook size or even double the thread up.
Up for experimenting? We recommend pairing Friends Wheel with a fluffy thread of our Friends Kid Silk, it will do wonders and give the garment a hint of luxury and extravagance.
This yarn is machine washable at 40°C (104°F), which makes it perfect for everyday use and suitable for children’s garments as well. The whole range comes with our “easy start” pull-out tab, making it much easier to find the beginning of your skein.
It is time to get creative with our Friends Wheel.
The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 2276-367). Find more information about the certification at the https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/
About the Friends family
The colors of the yarns included in the Friends family are literally friends!
This means the colour numbers correspond to the same colour across the different Friends yarns. If you order the same colour number from two different Friends yarns, they will match. Please note that there can be slight differences in the shades from fiber to fiber.
Have fun combining and matching them in all your projects.

I was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful this yarn is. The mix of acrylic with the cotton gives it a soft feel. I LOVE the color options. I was looking for quality thin yarn and this meets my expectations. I feel this is more of a number 1 yarn than a number 2 but I’m comparing that to a number 1 yarn I get here in the US. I love working with thin yarn so now that I found these, I’m going to definitely order a lot more. I love that Hobbii offers so many options in thin yarn. Can’t wait until my next order!
I made a dress for my granddaughter out of this yarn. The dress was knitted in the round and turned out really wonderfully. The fabric had a lovely drape and a soft sheen to it. I cannot wait to see my granddaughter wear it! I have ordered more yarn to make a summer top for my daughter because it is just so nice.
LOVE working with this yarn! Like others have mentioned, it is thinner than expected but I knew that going into this because the Twister Solid is also thin. This is some of my favourite yarn to work with for summer wearables, I haven’t found anything that competes.
I made a coverup with the friends wheel . made a video on Youtube #noshadesofgrey channel
she’zGot yarn 2 I loved the yarn . cover up made is called White sands and Ocean Waves . I love the finished product
I was skeptical initially as I had not worked with yarn with acrylic. After days of working on my poncho project, inam very please with the yarn and the end result！
