Meet the Rainbow family’s medium-sized Rainbow 8/6.

Hobbii Rainbow is one of our own series of cotton yarn, both durable and soft, in a really high quality, which has been a big favorite for a long time.

With a yardage of 105m / 50g, Rainbow 8/6 is an especially applicable thickness, just between 8/4 and 8/8 in the same series. Neither too thin and fine, nor too chunky and rustic, but just right.

Cotton fibres are good for withdrawing excess heat from the body and Rainbow 8/6 is thus very suitable for clothing. It would be great in a lovely summer top, a blouse or a crocheted summer jacket. There are lots of possibilities. The Rainbow series is found in a plethora of nuances, so it should be possible to find the right nuance for your creative projects.

Rainbow 8/6 is also good for e.g. crocheted teddy bears or amigurumi. By the way, did you know that for most crochet projects, e.g. teddy bears etc, you can use the same pattern in all Rainbow’s sizes? You adjust the size of the crochet hook to the thickness of the yarn you are using, and the only difference is the size of the finished project. Lace, 8/4, 8/6, 8/8 = mini, small, larger, largest. Ready, set, go!

I use this yarn for amigurumi dolls and it's wonderful. They turn out beautifully with nicely defined stitches. The selection of colours are lovely. The only thing I've found was that the light brown I ordered was much stiffer than the other skeins, so I had to increase the hook size for this colour. Otherwise, the quality of this yarn is amazing and is very smooth on your hook! I see that it's almost entirely sold out though, so I really hope it's not discontinued.

I love this yarn and it is working beautifully for my project, 54 Disney themed Christmas ornaments. I know that during the current world situation everyone is working hard to keep things going. I just wish it was in stock more often. I am at a stand still waiting for the White 001 and Yellow 054 to come back in stock, as well as waiting on the two orders I have already placed. Keep up the good work and keep smiling.
