Acacia is a lovely and soft mixed yarn in cotton and acrylic. The cotton adds breathability and comfort while the acrylic makes the yarn lighter and helps keep its shape. A perfect combination where both acrylic and cotton get to show their best qualities.
The cotton content makes for slightly firmer fibers making it easy to work with for both knitting and crocheting. It’s easy to get the stitches nice and even. We’re looking forward to making pretty summer blouses in pastel shades, but Acacia is great all year round, e.g., in long-sleeved sweaters and cardigans.
The colors are extra beautiful because the delicate shades show themselves as a slightly mottled effect when cotton and acrylic are colored separately. It makes for an evocative and classic look with a very special play of colors.
Acacia is soft and completely itch-free and is of course machine washable and easy to maintain. It’s a good choice if you want to use yarn without animal fibers - or you experience discomfort with wool.
The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 2076-311). Find more information about the certification on the https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/.

I love this yarn! I haven’t been a huge fan of cotton in the past as it can be rough, but this yarn was so smooth and easy to work with. I made a cardigan for summer and it is super soft and lightweight. I definitely recommend this yarn for its smoothness and versatility! As it has 4 strands twisted together, it does occasionally split, but I didn’t find it much of a problem.
This is the softest most beautiful cotton and acrylic blend I've ever worked with! The sheen is pretty and not too "shiney". It's definitely worth every yard! The Diamond Luxe baby blanket found on here would be perfect. Summer dress or tops definitely worth trying with the wonderful drape. Stay tuned for photos 😊
This is my favourite yarn from Hobbii. It's so soft and feels nice to the touch. All the colour offered are a little bit muted in a good way so they can be combined and the work will look good anyway. The price is a little bit steep compared to other yarns but the quality justifies it for me.
I bought this yarn to make a sweater for my son. I've been looking for a yarn that would be easy to work with, but easy to care for. Boy did I luck out!
I so enjoyed working with this yarn. Before I knew I was in the grove and flying along. This is going to be fun!
Just started using Acacia for my Amigurumi and I am loving this yarn. Yes it does split but if you know this you should have no problems. I am currently using a 2.5mm hook and it’s working great! My only complaint is the colors….need more choices!
