Everything about this buying experience has been great. I live in Queensland Australia, and am thrilled with how quickly the order was assembled and arrived here. Thank you. It has been a long time since I have had such good customer service. Even the website was easy to use!! The yarn is so soft, the colours beautiful, excellent quality and a terrific price. I found it easy to work with but did have a slight problem with splitting using the ”pointy” end Boye brand hook. This was fixed when I changed to a rounder end hook Aero brand hook. I am making the Carnival of Colours blanket by Noelene Semprey, and for hot Queensland this will be great. Thank you again.


I absolutely love working with this yarn. The stitch definition is unparalleled and it's so very soft. Sometimes cotton can be hard on the hands to work with, but not this one! It glides off my hook and no sore hands! And no issues with splitting either.

I can't say anything about how it holds up to regular wear as I'm making my first garment with it, but I suspect it'll last with the usual extra care one should take with handmade items.

Definitely a fan! And I LOVE all the color choices. I am using #64 Dark Powder Rose and it's not a color I often see in other cotton yarn. The price point is excellent as well. Basically you can't go wrong with this yarn!


Super quick delivery considering it has traveled all the way from DK to US. Took only 5 days from the point of order to the delivery. A couple of youtubers I subscribe to use this yarn all the time but I was keep postponing purchasing these. Now I am regretting why I didn't buy this sooner. Made a pouch with it right away. Yarn is easy to work with, pouch turned out soft yet hold its shape. Just what I needed. And it is so sweet of this company include a little candy :) tak skal du have Hobbii!!!

It has been a pleasure purchasing and using Rainbow cotton 8/8. The quality is outstanding compared to other similar products and the pricing is spot on. The parcel was put together and sent very quickly. I am experimenting with the crochet of baby blankets using patterns that will allow a stretchy feeling and so far it is looking very good. My aim is to move away from synthetic fibres (non degradable), with lots of carbon captured in natural cotton! Looking forward to becoming a regular client.


This yarn is by far the BEST to crochet amigurumi toys. I order from Canada and although there is a custom fee to pay, it is absolutely worth it. No other supplier will deliver as fast and orderly as Hobbii! This yarn is soft, durable and comes in an amazing range of colours. My wishes for the future: bigger skeins (100g) and more availability for the colours. I've been waiting quite a while to do a third order as the majority is back ordered - but I know it's worth the wait. :)
