We really just cannot get enough of our fantastic Friends Cotton 8/6.

Cotton is a great, strong, durable, breathable, absorbent, and lightweight natural fiber. Friends Cotton 8/6 has no less than all these characteristics and it is made out of 6 threads spun together.

All the shades have been thoughtfully selected to create a complete range that spans from bright to pastel and darker colors.

The whole range comes with our “easy start” pull-out tab, making it much handier to find the beginning of your skein.

This fiber is also easy to take care of, making Friends Cotton 8/6 so versatile that you can craft anything with it. Need some inspiration? We recommend dishcloths, pot holders, totes, and rugs for your house. It will be suitable for any kind of garment for both babies, children, and adults. And let’s not forget stuffed toys, amigurumi, and cute animals. Cotton has a great stitch definition and will work amazingly well with textured stitches.

Aren’t you already in love with Friends Cotton 8/6?

The yarn is OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 certified (no. 2276-367). Find more information about the certification at:

About the Friends family

The colors of the yarns included in the Friends family are literally friends!

This means the color numbers correspond to the same color across the different Friends yarns. If you order the same color 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.

Coming from Denmark, I did NOT expect my order to arrive so quickly! I have yet to actually start on the project I purchased this yarn for (I can't find my hooks!) but even just taking it out of the bag I'm so impressed with the quality. This yarn is soft and the ply is perfect. I cannot WAIT to purchase more, though I understand why a lot of the colors I wanted are sold out!
Pros: Great quality, 100% cotton, great value for quality, beautiful colors.
Cons: Higher shipping, lots of colors sold out.
Overall, a wonderful product, and I'm looking forward to a color restock!


I love hobbii friends yarn!! It is the best cotton yarn I have tried and the easy pull tab is so convenient. With other yarn brands I'd dig around to find the center pull but I always pull out a large clump making a mess and takes forever. The friends yarn is also already super soft and isn't stiff like some other cotton yarn ive tried. I still treat my projects after I'm done and they dry bautifully. I'll be making a skirt with my new haul :)


This yarn is softer than rainbow cotton. That's what I thought the second I opened the bag. Also, I like the colors a little tiny bit better than rainbow. I'm using this to make the Debby cardigan, and I can see making a nice blanket out of this after. I've gone through ten skeins so far, and have not yet found any split ends. A huge plus! I'll definitely order more of this yarn every 6 months. That's when I always order.


Great yarn! When it's still rolled in the yarn ball, I wasn't quite impressed with it because it didn't feel as soft to me. However, once you start working with it, it is super soft. The stitch definition is great! I actually doubled this yarn to get double the weight and wow, there really was great stitch definition & the yarn did not split. I got this yarn in orange.


My friend got a collection of this yarn as a Christmas present because they knew I wanted to try making mini Amigurumi and I’m obsessed! The variety of colors available and reliability of this yarn from skein to skein is great! I ordered more colors to add to the ones I got and am having so much fun crocheting. Will be buying more when I think of more colors I want!
