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! 

The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 1976-294). Find more information about the certification on the https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/

might not feel amazing at first but once you work with it, it's soft not in a fluffy way but in a smooth way. I made myself a sunflower tote out of it, it's strong, it's pretty, I love it! definitely get this yarn if you're making something like a bag :)) colours come exactly how they're displayed on the website, tiny bit of staining in the package I ordered but I assume that's due to some water damage in delivery (a previous package from them however arrived perfectly, probably the courier's fault for the damage no worries)


Alyssa

Lovely yarn. Used it to make a bunch of doilies/place mats/coasters since cotton is good if it might get wet. Colors are great (so many to choose from!) and works up well. It's also machine washable which is a must for me. I don't have time to hand wash all my projects with special soap or with cool water, it all gets chucked into the washing machine for me. It did great!


Jennifer

I've found my new favorite yarn! Easy to work with and colors were similar to as seen in the photos. I used Pearl Grey, Blue, and Rose to make a stuffed bunny for my friend's baby and it's lasted almost a whole year through washing, playing, and chewing with no discolorization or pilling/fraying. Definitely my new go-to yarn!


Debbie Mulder

Absolutely loved working with this yarn. It’s smooth and silky and the finished project has a lovely sheen.
This colour red is gorgeous and a good ‘Christmas red’!
I made a toddler heirloom dress with it ... a great outcome, although a bit heavy, so I’ll try the 8/4 next time. Loved it! 🥰😍


Cindy

I’ve been using the 8/6 to make amigurumi and really like it. The easy start tab also saves you the hassle of finding the beginning. Wish there was as many color choices as the 8/4 and 8/6, but so far haven’t had any color match issues for my projects.
