Sultan is a brand new and fabulous "cake-yarn" made from 100% soft cotton. This yarn is characterised by 4 thin cotton threads that are not twinned together. Hence, it is perfect for shawls, afghans and scarves, where the long colour changes will come out perfectly.

Cotton Kings Sultan is available in many magnificent colour combinations and is presented in big luscious 200-gram balls with a meterage of approximately 800 metres. Shades 6-10 are the popular tone-on-tone colour changes and they change one thread at a time. Where the hue changes, you will see a tiny knot in one of the 4 twined strands that the yarn consists of. You can choose to ignore it which many crafters choose, or you can pull out a tiny bit of the yarn (the entire twined strand) in order to weave in the end at the back of your work. This spreads out the long colour changes over the 800 metres of thread with a dazzling result, crocheted or knitted alike. The cakes have an unusually pretty colour progression, where the nuances change from light to dark - or the other way around depending on whether you start with the inside or the outside thread. 

Use the Sultan cakes for shawls and summery scarves, allowing the change in nuances to shine, in one long handmade creation. A pretty boléro, a summer dress or a summer top, which will give you a delicate dip dye effect, could also be just the ticket for both adults and children.

It takes about one cake to make one shawl or scarf.
Pro tip: Before you start working the Sultan cake, run all 4 treads through a small bead to help the threads stay together throughout the project.

The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 2076-311). Find more information about the certification on the

The colors sparked my interest - I was curious as to how it would play out. I purchased several of the Sultan and Pastello varieties. As I crocheted the Virus Stitch triangle shawl, I was enthralled with the long, slow, gradient change of color and I am deeply in love with this yarn! The yarn alone makes a statement and no matter what pattern of shawl or poncho that I stitch with it, it never takes a back seat! In fact, the beautiful color gradient enhances the pattern and creates a show-stopper of a piece. I've been stopped in stores by women wanting to know where I bought the shawl or poncho and they were amazed when I told them that I had crocheted it and that it was NOT store bought. If you've been curious about this yarn, I urge you to give it a try. The cotton warms as it is worked and worn and becomes quite soft with a gorgeous drape: I used a 5.5mm hook for both the shawl & poncho. You owe it to yourself to give this beauty a try. Happy Creating!


I've completed more projects with this yarn in the past year than any other and I don't think I'll be stopping anytime soon. The colors are always beyond gorgeous, even my best monitor resolution never does them justice. I've only had one incident where the gradient in 1 of 4 cakes of Rainbow Pyrite didn't match up, but I'm stubborn and don't mind wrestling with yarn, and this was the only issue I've ever had with the yarn out of nearly 15 cakes I've ordered now. Considering the dozens of factory knots and wonky dye lots I've dealt with from other yarn retailers, this was a walk in the park. You definitely need to be patient working with the yarn since it's comprised of 4 separate strands, but it's very much worth the effort. I cannot give this yarn enough love, you gotta get some sultan <3


This was my very first Hobbii yarn. Generally I use thicker yarns and I have never used a yarn with individual strands before. I was a bit nervous.
I bought Sultan because of the amazing colors. Seeing them in real life, the colors are even better than online! My second thought after the color is that I absolutely love that there is a handy little sticker so you can easily find the center of the yarn. Now that I have used the yarn, it is not as intimidating as I had thought. It took a few stitches to get the hang of the individual strands but it really is not difficult to crochet. I love how soft and drapey this baby blanket is working up. It will be the perfect weight for an August baby!
I see many more skeins of Sultan in my future!


Oh my goodness the hype is RIGHT. I finally gave in and splurged on some Hobbii yarn and bought almost exclusively this yarn and I am NOT disappointed. It works up so beautifully and I’ve finished through one cake so far and there wasn’t a single imperfection in it. It’s so soft and squishy when it’s crocheted into a blanket and I cannot wait to have it finished! The only thing I’d like is for the colors within the cake to be named so it’s easy to find coordinating cakes to go with it, but as is it’s my favorite yarn now. I’m gonna need someone to take my credit card away so I don’t buy more until I’ve used up what I have!!


I was a little bit hesitant at first, to try this yarn. My hesitancy was due to the fact that it was comprised of 4 threads that were not twisted together like most yarns. I was afraid of frustration due to splitting. However...I am SO glad I bought this...I am loving how it's working up and it isn't nearly as fearsome as I'd thought! Wonderful product, and beautiful result! My daughter LOVES the table runner I am making with it for her dressing table. I also really love that Hobbii yarns have the easy start tabs, this makes it so easy to start a project without the frustration or mess of digging for the start. Thank You Hobbii!!!
