Hobbii Dahlia is the perfect cake yarn with beautiful, long color changes. The four strands in Dahlia aren’t spun together, which gives the yarn its unique depth of color.
All color combinations in Dahlia are carefully composed to create the most beautiful look. The gradual color changes almost creates a dip dye effect that really stands out in crocheted or knit shawls. However, the yarn is also perfect for other projects such as blankets, scarves, or clothes for children or adults.
Hobbii Dahlia is made from 100% pure cotton and comes in large 7 oz (200 g) skeins, so you only need approx. one skein for a shawl. The soft cotton makes the yarn perfect for shawls, since cotton has a slight weight to it, which helps shawls drape beautifully when worn.
You can adjust the color transition yourself when working with Hobbii Dahlia. The yarn was designed with an “easy start” from the middle of the yarn, but you can also give your project a different look by starting from the outside. It will shift the color change, so that a yarn that changes from light to dark will instead change from dark to light.
Tip: You can make it easier to work with a four strand yarn by running them through a small bead before using the yarn. That way, all four strands will stay neatly together while you work.
The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 2076-311). Find more information about the certification on the https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/

Amazing colorways and pretty soft once worked up. I was nervous about this yarn being so loosely plied, but i use a bead to collect the threads together and it's worked great! It helps with yarn tension and control as well. I have had to frog a good amount of this (I didn't know extended double crochet was a different stitch than US treble... no wonder it looked odd!) and if you are gentle this frogs with zero issues. I just moved the bead to the beginning of the frogged yarn and kept going! I love that one cake is enough for a smaller wearable. The cake is also wound very well and hasn't gotten too wobbly or started to bottom out.
Works up beautifully! Seems identical to Sultan except in colors, so if you are familiar with that yarn, this will give the same results. I would say an 8/10 on softness scale when pulling it off the skein, but softens to a 9/10 with use (for scale 10/10 would be those fluffy sherpa blankets for me - which isn’t always what you want anyways). For me crocheting, the four strands stay together nicely and the yarn is surprisingly easy to work with for something so thin (as someone used to worsted or bulky weight previously).
I recently purchased an order that included Zingaro, and it was amazing to work with to create a halter top. The yarn is very sturdy, and it’s easy to frog. It splits often, but that’s the nature of the yarn with it being 4 untwisted strands. The color transitions are spectacular, and they were just the right length for my project. It easily lived up to the great previous experiences I’ve had with Hobbii yarn
I love the way that the yarn transitions between colors, changing one strand at a time. At first I thought that the yarn might be difficult to work with since it's not a plied yarn, but once you get going, it's great (just be careful not to split threads). I would recommend checking your work as you go and perhaps going a little slower. So far I've made 4 shawls/beach wraps, and I'm onto the 5th!
I love the colors available with Dahlia. The Purple Gem and Blue Bell colors are my favorites. The cotton isn't quite as soft as the other available cotton, Sultan, but it is very loosely twisted multi-ply, which makes it much easier for me to use because I plan on working with two strands held together to make a thicker yarn (most likely this will end up being a worsted weight if I do that).
