Select Color:

This is Hobbii’s very own organic cotton spun in a soft, classic and luscious 8/8 ply fingering weight. The fibre is made from 100% organic cotton which has both been spun and dyed in an environmentally friendly and sustainable fashion. This 8/8 is an 8 ply DK weight whereas the classic 8/4 version is a 4 ply fingering weight.

Naturally , Rainbow Organic has been GOTS certified (No. 2017-057) which is your guarantee that the fibre has been manufactured with thought and respect for the environment  - completely without the use of chemical  pesticides and  artificial fertilisers etc.

The shade chart includes many gorgeous shades, so there is bound to be a shade to fit your next handmade project. Just pick a colour and get started :-)

One ball of 50 grams gives you a meterage of 75 metres and the recommended needle/ hook size is 3.5-4 mm.

Rainbow Organic 8/8 is especially suitable for baby and children’s clothing since it is 100% organic, but is equally suitable for dishcloths, guest towels, hot mitts, toys, summer clothing, home decor, animals, afghans, and the like. We do not recommend tumble drying of jumpers and such, but dishcloths and towels can  can easily be tumbledried.

Rainbow Organic 8/8 cotton yarn is exactly what we hoped it would be -- soft and good-looking. We wanted an earth and human friendly cotton yarn and hoped the many skeins in the 7 colors we ordered would be as consistent and lovely as non-organic options. When the package arrived, we were super pleased. Giddy, in fact. Organic 8/8 is now the go-to yarn for our knitted goods. One note regarding shipping: if you're in the western U.S., allow for the maximum delivery time. We like this product and hobbii as a company, so it's worth the wait.

I ordered this for myself and liked it so much I ordered more to give as a gift. I'm so pleased to have an organic yarn. The skeins are small but large enough for the amigurumi projects I have planned. I'm located in the US. Shipping was prompt and affordable. Highly recommend.

A friend wanted a pair of organic cotton gloves due to sensitivity to wool and I ordered the grey and light blue. They are LOVELY! They knit up beautifully, excellent tension and super warm. I will be ordering again. Not crunchy like so many cottons!

I wanted an organic cotton to knit for my new grandson who lives in the South. The quality is superb and the shipping was spot on. I can’t wait to start this sweater for our baby boy coming in June.
