What is probably the most characteristic of wool is probably its amazing ability to hold heat. The appearance of the wool depends on which sheep variety it comes from and how it is processed. Wool can be used for crochet, knitting or felting - needles to say, with this kind of yarn there are a plentitude of possibilities.

The many characteristics of the wool yarn

The benefits of using wool for knitting or crochet projects are many. One of them is that it is a natural temperature regulating material that can absorb up to 35% moisture without feeling cold or wet to the skin. Another advantage that many may not associate with wool is that it is actually possible to get wool materials that do not itch - did you know that? Although there are of course some materials that are itchy, we also sell lots of wool types, which actually have a silky feel and thus are extremely soft. So remember to have this in mind before buying your wool yarn. In addition, the wool is also very well suited to the Nordic climate as it holds heat really well. Did not know that wool is also able to cool? The fact that wool may show both warming and cooling properties attests to yarn being a material perfect for being used all year round to the delight of lots of people.

When using wool as its primary yarn material, it is extremely important that you follow the correct washing instructions. Wool is a sensitive material that can easily change its structure and shape if washed incorrectly. If you buy 100% wool yarn, it will typically have an ideal washing temperature at 30/40 degrees, which is usually the most appropriate. In addition, be aware that you dry the wool flat so it does not shrink. If you want to take extra care of your wool yarn, you should make sure that you follow the ideal knitting and crochet tension and use the recommended knitting needles and crochet hooks.

Good for everyday life

With wool yarn there are many possibilities. It can be used by and for children and adults, who may prefer to crochet or knit warm socks to enjoy on a cold winter day. However, there are also many other knitting and crochet options in woolen garments such as scarves, mittens and sweaters.

So pleased to receive parcel containing Nature Organic Wool, have started knitting a baby cardigan in colour 02, knitting up beautifully, so lovely and soft, ideal for baby garments. Parcel arrived promptly, I will be ordering more wool from Hobbii.


Great colors! Haven't started my project, but I expect it would be nice for my fair isle knitting. I have searched your online shop for some solid -color wool yarn to match this yarn but I didnot find any. Maybe you guys can give me some suggestions?


Quality wool, easy to work with and very soft. Product arrived in Australia in less than a week. Bonus curved darning needle was a pleasant surprise. Crocheting baby blanket for a new born and have found Baby Merino to be perfect.


Bought a bunch of Baby Merino skeins for an elderly lady's shawl and I love them. The colours are lovely and the wool is beautifully soft. I look forward to the finished product and I'm sure it will keep it's owner nice and warm.


I love this wool - soft and beautiful .. .Color is very beautiful . Nice prices and very nice service + fast shipping. I bought 6 skeins for little nice girl... Thank You very much from 🇨🇦 Canada! 🧶

This bulky, squishy wool is a dream to knit with. I made hats with it and will make more as soon as I order other colors of this product. The yarn didn't split or roll or untwist. It was a joy to use.

Pat Hidson

I love this wool! I am making a woman's (3X) shrug but instead of the 3 mm crochet hook recommended here I am using a 5 mm hook. It is a bit harder to work the stitches but the effect is stunning.


This is as soft as a cloud! I’m using it for a baby sweater and have no qualms about my baby wearing wool because it’s THAT soft! I can’t wait to order more.
