We think giant yarn skeins are really fun! And here’s a MEGA skein with an incredible 400 g (14 oz) at an incredible price! Meet the Aran version of the popular Mega Ball. It’s the same great quality, just thicker. You get 700 meters (765 yards) in these skeins, so you’re sure not to run out, even on the largest projects. Knit or crochet away without having to weave in too many ends. 

Mega Ball Aran is Oeko-tex certified and is spun by one of the best producers of acrylic yarns in the world. Forget about stiff and itchy acrylic! Mega Ball Aran is delicate and comfortable and feels nice and soft against your skin. The possibilities are endless; use it for sweaters, cardigans, scarves, and hats. Knit or crochet a soft, warm blanket or other interiors. 

With a wide range of beautiful colors, you have plenty of opportunity to create beautiful color combinations, e.g., intricate diagram designs, muted or vivid stripes, etc.

Mega Ball Aran is practical and easy to maintain, since it’s machine washable at 104 degrees F. And if you want to avoid animal fibers, then the entire line of Classic Acrylic is a great choice. 

Do you prefer the same yarn in smaller skeins? Then check out our Classic Acrylic Aran. It’s the same quality, just in bags of 5 100 g (3.5 oz) skeins. 

The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (nr. 2076-311). Find more information about the certification here: https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/.

I really love this yarn. It is a thinner super soft yarn, which is what I prefer. It makes beautiful soft baby blankets and clothes. I have 6 balls, so far, 3 that came as a mill end special, and three I purchase at $11.50 each. These did not have a lot of knots, but those that were mill ends had several, which is to be expected. I simply went through and did a Russian join, and you cannot tell it. I also found that because of the size of the balls, when about half of the ball is used, it begins to fall apart. I simply roll it into a large ball to begin with and place it into a 5-quart ice cream bucket . The ball is releases easily and does not roll all around the floor. (Plus, that gives a good reason to buy more ice cream.)
A negative is that it is so soft that it does pile some. I have not washed a project, yet so do not know if this could be a problem. So far, I just pull it off, and go on.
I truly think you will love this yarn. I know I will buy again.

First time ordering from hobbii and I decided to go with the Megaball 400g in pastel colors plus some cotton yarn. I'm in the US and the yarn comes from Denmark, so I was very pleasantly surprised at how quickly my order arrived. Was very excited to get my yarn, and it has already exceeded my expectations. The megaballs are huge and very good value for money, and the yarn itself is very soft and easy on the hands. I have already started a small blanket with tunisian entrelac and am so pleased with how its coming along. I will post a picture once it's finished. I also appreciated the little gifts of sweets and knitting gauges, thank you hobbii. This is now my go to site for yarn, needles and hooks and any other yarn related bits and pieces. My wish list keeps growing as I see something else I want lol. Recommending to my friends and family who knit and or crochet.

Overall, I am loving this yarn, and the couple things that aren’t 10/10 aren’t enough to detract from the value. Here’s my pro/con list:
Pro
1. You get a lot more yardage than most other bulk yarns on the market.
2. The color variety is pretty great. I do wish there were more, but who doesn’t? Everyone wants that perfect shade. The available colors will meet most needs.
3. It’s so soft. For a bulk yarn, I didn’t expect it to be as soft as it is.
4. I haven’t come across a single knot or ends tied together.
5. The price is great.
Cons
1. The pictures colors and the colors I received aren’t the same. The site colors are more vibrant than what you get in person.
2. There are some sections of the yarn that get a smidgen thinner.

Absolutely fell in love with this. I love the size. 1 Mega ball is almost enough to make 1 sweater, but not quite. So I went for 2 of just about every color. Went to try 2 and by now, I have ordered I believe 12 of these. It is so nice and soft. Super easy to knit with. Once all my Christmas projects are done, I might try for some others. Every color I've had is beautiful. Softness is very important for me, as I myself and several family members itch easity. Awesome :)

I decided to try Hobbii for a blanket project and this being my first time ordering from them I was a bit skeptical.... I was not let down. I'm from Canada so I was expectinga long shopping times and that was not the case. I decided to go with the Megaball 400g in a variety of colors. When I started using this yarn I was pleasantly surprised with the feel, softess and how the yarn held together... and to boot the megaballs are huge. I will definitely order again.
