Pro tip: Before you start working the Sultan cake, run all 4 treads through a small bead to help the threads stay together throughout the project.

This was my very first Hobbii yarn. Generally I use thicker yarns and I have never used a yarn with individual strands before. I was a bit nervous.
I bought Sultan because of the amazing colors. Seeing them in real life, the colors are even better than online! My second thought after the color is that I absolutely love that there is a handy little sticker so you can easily find the center of the yarn. Now that I have used the yarn, it is not as intimidating as I had thought. It took a few stitches to get the hang of the individual strands but it really is not difficult to crochet. I love how soft and drapey this baby blanket is working up. It will be the perfect weight for an August baby!
I see many more skeins of Sultan in my future!
I was a little bit hesitant at first, to try this yarn. My hesitancy was due to the fact that it was comprised of 4 threads that were not twisted together like most yarns. I was afraid of frustration due to splitting. However...I am SO glad I bought this...I am loving how it's working up and it isn't nearly as fearsome as I'd thought! Wonderful product, and beautiful result! My daughter LOVES the table runner I am making with it for her dressing table. I also really love that Hobbii yarns have the easy start tabs, this makes it so easy to start a project without the frustration or mess of digging for the start. Thank You Hobbii!!!
I was intimidated by the 4-thread construction, but compared to the dollar store cotton yarn I've used before, this one was a treat. I almost exclusively use mercerized cotton because i hate the splitting of cotton yarn, but this one splits less than a non-mercerized cotton (I used a bead to gather the strands). Takes a few rows to get used to it and I did work more carefully to ensure I picked up all four threads, but the yarn didn't give me trouble or frustrate me while using. With these gradients and color options, it is worth the small learning curve and marginally slower pace for the end result!
I absolutely love working with Sultan! The gradient of color came out quite stunning on the shawl I've made, and it worked well for a drawstring bag I worked up for a friend too. It's soft and drapes very nicely. I'm looking forward to using the rest of the cakes I bought.
One thing to note though, is it can split fairly easily. Using a bead is helpful for keeping the strands in line, but it's definitely worth it to just go a little slower and make sure you catch all four threads. Overall, definitely a product I recommend!
I received this yarn in one of the lucky bags I had purchased. The colors were beautiful. I was worried about trying to use it as I had never seen yarn comprised of 4 loose strands rather than twisted together, but those worries were for not. This yarn, while intimidating, is easy to use. Plus it is incredibly light and soft. I am currently halfway through knitting a shawl for a family member with the aquamarine version and am loving how it is turning out. I look forward to making more beautiful knits with this yarn!
