Select Color:

We have fallen head over heels for Twister, a really soft cake-yarn with beautiful color transitions, that develop into festive, subtle or crazy wild color combinations.

Perhaps you already know cake-yarns from e.g. Mayflower and Cotton Kings’ Twirls. If you crave a treat, you should know that “cake” is just a term for the way the yarn is packaged :) Our own Twister excels by being twined which makes the yarn easy to work with.

The amazing colors unfold as you go and it is a true pleasure to watch the slow transitions of the colors. Here you get a whole yard (km) of yarn and one skein is enough, if you wish to knit or crochet a shawl or a scarf. The fabulous cotton is combined with acrylic which adds a lighter and more solid end result.

Twister is perfect for shawls and scarves, but it has a lot of potential uses. It is easy to care for since it is machine washable. Please note, the yarn is tied together with a small knot where the threads change colors.

Generally, you use more yarn for crocheting than you do for knitting. So you might experience that you cannot use the entire skein when knitting e.g. a shawl. Of course, it depends on the project and the pattern, you choose. Normally, it is not a problem to have too much yarn, but please consider, if you prefer to start with the thread from the center or from the outside part of your Twister cake-yarn skein when starting on your project.

You can combine it with a one-colored Twister for e.g. an edge on a shawl, for sleeves or for a rib edge on a blouse or a poncho. Check out Twister Solid right here.

Enjoy!

NOTE: Unfortunately, a mistake appears on a few labels. The correct information is 55% cotton + 45% acrylic.

Suggested knitting gauge is approx. 26 stitches x 35 rows with US needles size 2.5 (3 mm). Twister is a very flexible yarn which can be knitted tightly with US needle size 1.5 (2.5 mm), so you get a knitting gauge of approx. 28 stitches. You can also knit it looser with US needle size 6 (4 mm) and get approx. 22 stitches for e.g. extra soft shawls and scarves. Thus, you can experiment with the knitting gauge and easily vary it with various needle sizes depending on the project you are about to start. Try making a small gauge swatch of 4” x 4” (10 x 10 cm), so you can measure your knitting gauge before you start. Then you have the option to adjust it, so it matches the pattern or the gauge, you wish.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

This yarn is amazing!! I purchased five different color ways and they are all so incredibly beautiful and luxuriously soft. I’ve purchased similar yarn from local fiber stores and paid $34 for less yardage. I caught the twisters on sale for $15 with almost twice the yardage. My order was received promptly and in great condition. I absolutely WILL purchase twister and from Hobbii again very soon. You will not regret this yarn. The drape is so elegant. The colors are so vibrant. My new favorite yarn.

I absolutely love the Twister yarn! I ordered the first time in mid-December and despite it being close to the holidays and I live in the US, I received it on Christmas Eve day. That’s fast! The colors are so pretty! The shawl I crocheted with it turned out so beautiful! It’s wonderful to work with and has a nice drape. So I ordered again this month and I just received it a couple days ago. It’s so pretty, I love it! I love Hobbii Yarn too, great company!

I received Light Elegance - this yarn is so pretty! The transition in colors is so subtle, the feel of the yarn is soft, high quality and basically YUMMY! I love it so much, I ordered another - Chocolate Cream Pie!! Shipping from Denmark to America was quick and reasonably priced, too. Your team is so sweet and friendly, I will definitely be a repeat, repeat, repeat buyer!!! (love the little treat as well - I get excited knowing it's in the shipment). :-) xox

I almost didn't get this yarn because I usually use size 4 worsted weight. But these colors are so beguiling that I went ahead and got Reggae Beats. LOVE IT! It takes some getting used to working with thin yarn, but it's so exciting to see the colors gradually change as you crochet along. I'm making Hobbii's Classical Attitude poncho, and it's looking great. I've already ordered Galaxy Glaze and the Chocolate Cream Pie. Can't wait to use those, too.

Twister is a lovely yarn. It is very soft to work with, and there is no issue with splitting or fuzzies along the way. When I mess up a pattern and the inevitable frogging happens, there is no problem pulling my work undone and reusing. The colour changes are virtually seamless. It is a great size for most projects, and I have had fast shipping and service to Australia. Will be buying more Twister in the future that's for sure.
