Worsted20% Wool, 80% HB Acrylic
Lollipop is a magical yarn with long beautiful color changes, which comes in large delicious 200 gram yarn balls with a yardage of 350 meters. The yarn consists of 20% wool and 80% acrylic, which, first of all, makes it easy to work with and, secondly, ensures that your projects will be nice and warm to wear.
The 21 adventurous colors found in Hobbii Lollipop are highly suitable for knitting and crocheting projects such as scarves, blankets, ponchos, hats and various clothing.
Each yarncake is made up of 5 different colors, giving a unique look and color change for your projects.
Please note that the colors may have rubbed off on each other during the dye process. There can be small speckles of darker color on the lighter colors in the skein. This is perfectly normal and will add a dashing effect to your finished project.
Please note that the length of the color change can vary from one skein to the next.
Please note that you get one skein per unit you buy. The image with three skeins is only to illustrate how the look of the skein can vary due to the long colour sections.
The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 1976-294). Find more information about the certification on the https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/.

I just received my order with this yarn, and it is lovely stuff! A comparable yarn that is readily available here in the US is Caron Cakes, but the quality on the Lollipop cakes seems higher, and I like muted colorways that are available.
One of my cakes arrived unraveled and tangled, likely due to the bag being tossed around so much during shipping. Fortunately, the yarn wasn't damaged and is usable, and the other items in the bag were not broken. I understand the need to ship in bags to keeps costs low, but I had things in the bag that really needed to be wrapped in padding, not loose. It was only sheer luck that nothing broke.
I used two mega balls of lollipop to make the granny stripes shawl.
The yarn is lovely, the colour change isn’t too abrupt and two balls made a lovely large wrap.
I would say that the first ball had six knots in in which I found to be a bit below acceptable but the second ball only had one so o think it was a one off and I’d be very happy to buy again.
I love that when you buy on Hobbii you’re given some patterns/video tutorials . As a beginner it really helps me to visualise what to do with yarn, rather than buying then surfing to find something I could make.
Lollipop yarn has been a treat for me.
I first purchased Lollipop to try my hand at making a hexagon cardigan. Since then I've made hats and scarves to match. The blend of acrylic and wool make this great for cool weather as a cozy layer that keeps me warm even with the open granny square stitches. Also, as someone who can be wool sensitive, Lollipop yarn has not bothered me when I work with or wear it over other clothes.
The colors are delicious and I have purchased 5 different colorways so far. I see more Lollipop yarn in my future and look forward to it.
I knit scarves for the homeless (through KOGO) and am knitting with Lollipop for the first time - colour number 12 (Boston). It has a lovely feel on the needles and as it is knitted up - it feels very luxurious, considering it only has 20% wool. The shades seem to have some flecks throughout, which gives some visual interest as well. Am enjoying working with it.
I purchased Lollipop in Augusta. I am in the middle of making a throw blanket for a friend and I live for the softness of this yarn despite it being a wool blend. It mixes well with my other, full acrylic, worsted weight yarn allowing me to add a complimentary color that fits the palette I wanted. It's perfect and will keep for her for a long time.
