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.

I had so much fun working with this yarn - just finished a granny cluster pullover in the color 88 (colors are gorgeous and I love that it's not just one solid color) and it has such a nice fuzzy halo around it. It holds it shape really well after being washed, didn't stretch out as much as I thought it would with it being primarily cotton. I had to frog it once and didn't have much difficulty with snagging which was a nice surprise!
This yarn is so soft and pretty, I couldn't wait to put it to use. I combined 2 colors to make a sweater. It worked up well and fast. The yarn doesn't split as it seems like kind of a tube structure inside. The halo is a bit catchy as you're working with it if you have dry skin or a ragged nail edge. But I really liked the end product made from it.
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.
