Hobbii Universe XL is a wonderful expansion of our über popular Universe yarn. Universe XL gives you all the same positive features, but as the name suggests, the XL version is extra thick, which offers completely new possibilities for exciting knitting and crochet projects.
The yarn is distinguished by its long gradients with beautifully balanced colors. The colors are complimented by a glitter thread in a matching color. This creates a more subdued glitter effect, making the yarn even more elegant.
Universe XL runs 220 meters per 100g, so it’s exactly twice as thick as Universe. This makes the yarn perfect for projects that need extra volume. For example, Universe XL can be ideal for a beautiful blanket or a similar project that needs to be both soft and warm.
The sky’s the limit with Universe XL, so explore our exciting color universe for yourself.
The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 2076-311). Find more information about the certification on the https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/

WOW! Some of my favorite yarn I've ever worked with. I cannot recommend this one enough. This was THE yarn that pulled me back into crocheting and knitting after a long hiatus. I purchased Blaze Star (#18) to try it out and knitted a surprisingly plush scarf / wrap. I've uploaded a picture of the finished project, which does not do justice to just how sparkly it is! Also, it's unbelievably warm to be fairly light yarn. The glitter thread does not add any sort of uncomfortable scratchiness to the finished projects - just gives some razzle dazzle, and who doesn't love that? I'm grabbing some of the other colors as they come back in stock, as I have plans to use it to make some of my Christmas gifts this year.
Overall pretty easy to crochet with. The glitter strand sometimes gets caught on the hook, but it's easy to fix in the moment. I'm crocheting a project right now with the Orion color. Quality is good, no knots or abrupt color changes so far and I'm on my 3rd skein. My favorite thing about the universe yarn is the colors. I'm obsessed. I cannot get enough. I really need a small fortune just to blow on this yarn. I really hope this product line continues because I'm going to need a few years to get through the projects I'd love to make with it.
Oh one more thing, the crocheted material is pleasantly soft, no itchiness from the glitter strand or anything.
When this company says that the sparkle isn't really noticeable in the final product and isn't itchy, I wasn't 100% on board; I haven't even finished my project, but I can tell you, with the dry hands that come from the cold dry air of the midwest U.S., and the tiny cuts etc that result, I don't feel the glittery strand hardly at all when crocheting with it! As I feel the beginnings of my project, it just feels soft! I really do like this--wishing I had bought more!
I adore this yarn!!!!!
The acrylic is lustrous and has its own sheen, with the metallic filament giving it just the right amount of sparkle!! It feels great while working as well, the yarn is so soft. The colors are rich and beautiful!!! It's great for young and adult recipients.
The cakes are just a little small, so make sure you order lots for bigger projects.
You won't be able to get enough after you start working with this product!!
Once you work with this yarn you will keep coming back for more! It is soft, and works into a beautiful drape & comforting weight. A pleasure to work with, I have gotten many compliments on the shawl I made using the #14 'Galactic' colorway. Just so fun & gorgeous. Sparkly but not excessive... just divine! Currently part of several WIPs cannot get enough of this yarn. Must have all the colors!
