Horizon offers beautiful, clear colors in the loveliest stripes. It is a super soft and rich yarn, which comes in large, delightful skeins of 200g. You will get really far with just one skein, which contains a total of 550 meters of beautiful stripes.

Horizon is a premium acrylic, so it is spun from extra good quality. This means that, amongst other things, the yarn is processed in several steps, that are similar to the processing of wool. The acrylic is combed, which makes it richer and extra soft. Furthermore, Horizon has been through a Hi-Bulk process, where the yarn is steamed under production and thus pulls together a little. This results in a more comfortable and softer fill.

Horizon can be used for many exciting projects. It is OEKO-TEX labeled, can be machine washed, and does not scratch! It is wonderful to use for clothing such as sweaters, scarves, hats, etc. But can also be used for interiors such as a soft, chunky blanket. It is also a great alternative for those who are allergic to wool.

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 nor a process added to the yarn; the difference is in the construction of the special fiber material that the yarn is spun from. 

The yarn is OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 certified (no. 2276-367). Find more information about the certification at: https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/. 

Horizon is colored in hanks because it gives the loveliest color shifts and the yarn maintains its thickness. During this coloring process, this can mean that where the yarn’s threads meet, the threads can give off a little color to one another. It is important to emphasize that this happens before the colors are fixed and thus will not run off onto the finished yarn. It can, however, reveal itself as a few extra colored spots within the yarn.

I got 4 cakes of #08 (Twilight) to make a hexagon cardigan, and it was love at first stitch! I love working with anti-pilling acrylic because of its squishy, bouncy texture, and this yarn flows so easily and beautifully in the hand and over my crochet hook. I had lots left over and have been using it to crochet some matching accessories. It is SUPER soft and lightweight, and I love all the rich, beautiful colors.

Best to be mindful while using it, though, that if you pull from the center like I do, once you've used about half it will collapse on itself and become tangled very easily. So, unless you habitually pull from the outside, once you reach a certain point it's worth taking the time to wind the remainder up into a ball. Additionally, there is a certain chance for factory knots -- of the 3 cakes I used, only one was knot-free. Still definitely worth using in my opinion, and I will 100% be using it again, but you do need to have a certain amount of patience with this yarn.

What amazing yarn! This was my first time buying from Hobbii. When the Horizon yarn went on sale last year, I was going over all the colors that were left. I very seldom buy anything for myself. My late husband (he was so amazing and loved watching me crochet and create beautiful afghans, but most of all, he loved to help me pick the colors out for not only the afghans, but the borders as well). When the yarn came, it was so soft and so easy to work with (no splitting). I was able to make one afghan on our trip from VA to Myrtle Beach SC. I finished the afghan on the Saturday that we got back (we were gone for 1 week), and I lost him in his sleep the very next day. I would recommend this yarn to anyone that I know that does any kind of craft using yarn, because this yarn is amazing to work with, and it has very special memories behind me not only trying it for the first time, but it has one of the last good memories with my husband!

Let me start by saying, I typically dislike acrylic yarn. That said, I bought (5) Sunup Sky and (5) Flower Meadow. This yarn is unbelievably soft. It feels nice while you're working it up, it feels nice on my sensory-sensitive skin, and even when you're re-winding it, the portion flying through your fingers isn't rough. I bought Kind Feather in Yellow to be my complimentary/edge yarn. To me, Kind Feather is a PERFECT match. I am anxiously awaiting some colors to restock and for it to pop back on sale. I will a million percent buy more of Horizon in the future.
I love how long/short the color changes occur. The finished product has amazing squishy, stretchiness. I only wish the winter season where I live was longer, because the sweater I'm finishing up isn't going to be of use to me again for several months lol

I had no idea what I expected with this yarn- I ordered some in the colors Ocean, Desert, and Island. My only regret is that I should've bought more than one skein of each! They were so bright, so vivid, and so very soft to the touch! It's weight was even throughout and I had no issues with knots. One or two spots had some colors bleed into another, but this was very minor. It also looks pretty good crocheted in half-double crochet and double crochet, and was very easy to work with even when I changed gauges. I highly recommend this yarn for shawls, as well as projects that look good with sharp contrasting colors or different shapes. I do recommend you turn the brightness on your screen up to view the colors properly, though, as they may be brighter than they appear.

I bought this yarn to make an afghan for a baby in Texas. I probably only needed to buy 2, but I bought 5. I did get it when it was on sale. I have been very sick for 4 months, so I deserved a treat. Today I went to my knitting group for the first time in months. Everyone went crazy over the yarn. It is soooooooo soft and the colors are fabulous. I already have someone putting claims on what I have left over. I did not start working on it yet as I had to straighten the cord in my new needles. If I see yarn I like, I will not hesitate to buy. The quality, the color and the delivery are outstanding. The yarn took more time to get from New York to just north of Boston than it to from Denmark to New York. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
