Hobbii Metallico is a lovely yarn that really catches the eye with its beautiful, satin shine. You might know other yarn qualities with similar metallic effects, but Metallico is soft like no other. Here you get the nice, shiny effect without compromising on comfort.
Metallico is made from a shiny, satin like thread of polyamide that’s encased by a fluffy, lightly brushed mix of merino wool and soft acrylic. It can be used for the whole family - including those with more delicate skin since the yarn doesn’t itch but is soft and lovely. If you want a truly unique result in your next knitting or crocheting project, Metallico can be the perfect yarn for the job.
You can easily make the loveliest hats, scarves or other accessories that will get the most beautiful shine that makes Metallico different from all other yarns. You can add elegant ribbed edges to your knitwork with it. Or use it in a festive sweater. The shine of the yarn can lift a very simple design into the extraordinary. A lovely, striped cardigan can become magnificent if you combine different colors.
The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 1976-294). Find more information about the certification on the https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/

The whole concept seemed interesting, but in person it is on another level. It is different in the best way compared to all other yarns that try to have some metallic, shimmer, or other such affect. While most of those kinds of yarns come off as cheap or are hard to make the finished result look nice, this metallico yarn has all the promise of making something you make shimmer and look professionally done at the same! Also, in other yarns failing to make a similar effect there is an issue of many yarns being uncomfortable, scratchy, too stiff, and sometimes completely unwearable. Metallico yarn, I am happy to say, is pleasant to touch and so far is good for both loose draping clothes as well as those that need structure, and looks great with the crochet stitches I have tried out with it so far. So many garments I want to make with this it is so pretty and many color options I like!
I am obsessed with any yarn that sparkles, but even I wasn't ready for this. If i could only use one metallic/sparkly yarn for the rest of my life it would be this one. No thin metallic thread that separates from the rest of the tarn and snags or breaks and is scratchy, NO SPLITTING (it might actually be witchcraft how easy it is to crochet with), doesn't lose it's shininess once worked up, and has gorgeous stitch definition. It glows. I'm desperate for more colors like a yellow gold or orange copper since I'm pretty sure this might be the only yarn I use from now on. Looks incredibly luxe and is surprisingly forgiving. This is the yarn I want to be buried with.
I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this yarn!! When I first ordered it, my intentions were to make a scarf for myself - - but when I received it, and felt how phenomenally SOFT, and luxurious it is, I had to switch gears!! I ended up ordering MORE and making a beautiful shawl for my mother-in-law! And I wouldn't give her anything that wasn't "out of this world" soft and drapey (Yep! She deserves stuff that fantastic!)
Thank you Hobbii for making sure that EVERYTHING you sell is made with incredible care and quality! I have yet to receive ANYTHING from you that has been produced with less than A++ Brilliance!!
I bought the Rose Gold colorway of this yarn, and I've been making a sweater out of it. The yarn is incredibly soft for having that metallic shine to it! I've been taking it to work (I like to crochet during breaks) and I've been getting a lot of compliments on it. I even ended up getting one of the ladies there hooked on hobbii yarn!
Unfortunately I misjudged how much yarn I need, and I made it halfway through the second sleeve when I ran out, and the rose gold color is out of stock right now...I hope it comes back in stock soon, I am very excited to wear a sweater made out of this soft and smooth yarn!
I am a yarn addict! And this yarn caught my eye by how shiny it is. I love the stitch definition and the yarn feels super smooth and soft in my hand. While some yarns are itchy while I am working with it this yarn glides smoothly with my hand and my crochet hook! This is a great yarn to spice up a project with its colors and shininess or just to make a dazzling shiny pillow cover or top. If you make anything with this yarn everybody eyes will be drawn to you. The color palette is very numeral good for any project.There is a great color variety however I would love to see some more colors. Would recommend!
