Acrylic Yarn

Acrylic yarn is an artificially manufactured yarn product which has, in spite of being considered a stiff and scratchy material for several years, finally won the love of the people. Fortunately, however, acrylic yarn is now considered a high quality material with many practical features and advantages.

The acrylic yarn's many properties

The many benefits and features that acrylic yarn holds makes it easy to use in everyday life. Of course, using synthetic yarn is a matter of taste, but there is no doubt that the synthetic yarn is more effective in its color fidelity than naturally produced yarns, which means that it can be washed more often without losing its color. This characterizes acrylic yarn as one of the most durable yarns, as both color and fit remain relatively unchanged no matter how many times they are washed. New technologies have also helped to change the negative perception that have previously ruled, as many different versions of acrylic yarn are being produced, most of which are super soft. One of the greatest benefits of acrylic yarn is its hypoallergenic properties. So if you want to knit or crochet clothes for a person with allergy, using acrylic yarn is the obvious choice. It is possible to crochet with 100% acrylic, but many choose to combine it with other yarn products such as cotton yarn, which is very popular. In addition, the acrylic yarn is hugely user-friendly, so even if you're a beginner, it's easy to work with this kind of yarn while it's also cheap and good for practising, so get your knit on!

Good for everyday life

The good thing about the acrylic yarn is that it can be used for both knitting, crochet and embroidery, giving you virtually almost endless possibilities if you activate your imagination. This also gives you the chance to do different everyday projects such as clothes, toys, teddy bears and dolls for your children or grandchildren. However, you should be aware that acrylic is heat sensitive and as such should not be washed at over 40 degrees, as it risks losing its shape. So if you prefer yarns that are easy and great to work with, there is no doubt that acrylic could easily become your favorite yarn material.

What our customers say about Acrylic Yarn

Benita L Crespin

Very soft acrylic yarn, perfect for baby and toddler items. good color selection and the price can't be beat. I will use up the entire bag of baby blue for my great grandson due in June. Have finished Converse-style booties and a romper so far. I am so glad I found Hobbii. I can order all of my yarn on line from the comfort of my recliner and feel secure when ordering on your website. Reasonable shipping cost and exchange rate too, and delivery was pretty fast (all the way from Denmark to Florida). Thanks Hobbii. Benita C

Donna Roberts

I love the acrylic yarn especially for childrens afghans. I have put in quit a stock of it and the kids pick their colors. I will get other yarn as I go along with my crochet habit that brings me joy.

Margaret Hutchinson

This is my first order from Hobbii and I am extremely pleased with the colors and quality of the yarn. I do charity knitting and acrylic yarn is necessary because of its easy care. So often acrylics are harsh and stiff, but Tivoli is so soft and easy to handle. My needles are already busy making items. The Tivoli was also on sale, so this has been an exceptional bargain price for great yarn.

Judie McEnallay

This yarn is just so beautiful. I have not yet started the garment it is intended for but just love the graduated colour transitions that blend so seamlessly in the test swatch I did. It crochets very smoothly and makes up quickly but I think it would itch if it was too close to my skin. The description says it is a softer acrylic that is better against your skin but I have sensitive skin and I think this would irritate. However, in saying that, it will be perfect for the project I bought it for and I can't wait to get started. It was also a bonus to get it on sale.

Laura McDonald

Excellent yarn. I bought two of the different blues to make boy/men hats for our homeless community. My friends and I (Crochet Angels of Fairbanks, Alaska) make hats, scarves and mittens and take them to shelters throughout the community. This yarn is soft and keeps everyone warm.

Laura McDonald

LOVE this yarn. This yarn is so much fun and colorful. our group (Crochet Angels) makes small security type blankets for the kids that are staying in the shelter this winter. This yarn is super fun, the colors are great, its soft and is very easy to work with. Thank you

Kimm Gleave

I absolutely love this yarn. The colours are vibrant n fresh. The yarn itself holds it shape and washes up wonderfully. I highly recommend Hurricane you get all the benefits of a 100% wool product without the price! Can't say how much I love this product!

Janice S Turner

This yarn is a true joy! I crochet for a group that sends items to over 300 NICUs for preemie babies all over the USA, Puerto Rico and Guam. I love the softness of this yarn which can be used for even the tiniest babies with very sensitive skin.

Annette Tull

Beautiful colours. So soft and easy to knit. Knitting for great grandchild due in the next few months. Don’t know the sex so am knitting in multi colours suitable for a boy or a girl. Great products and quick deliveries to Australia.


Received this yarn a few days ago. I have not used it yet but was super excited at the colors that came. Will start working with it once I finish another project. Looking forward to using it. Sad that it is going away.
