TL;DR: 10/10 would recommend.
This is by far the softest cotton yarn I’ve worked with!! It’s smooth to work with and doesn’t stick on the hook or to itself like other yarns I’ve tried (ahem, Lily Sugar ‘n Cream and to a lesser extent Lion Brand 24/7). The small size makes for garments that drape beautifully, and holding two (or more) strands together allows you to easily bulk up any project. I used a smaller hook size than recommended, even for doubling up, and I like the gauge that gives me better than the sizes suggested on the little skeins, but ymmv.
My projects are SO soft and comfy, I can’t stop touching them haha. And the colors are gorgeous, so I can’t stop looking at them either! I’m totally hooked, and I’m sure you will be too.

I decided to make a Korowai (Maori Cloak) for my granddaughter. This cloak is for a child so I started searching for some strong soft cotton here in NEW Zealand but couldn't find any. I had subscribed to hobbii only a few months earlier. Checked out the website and ordered 200 balls of white cotton. I took a risk in ordering the cotton but was delighted to say the least, the cotton was so soft and just what I needed. The service I received was fantastic from the start of my order to when I received it a week later. The prompt deliver of the 200 balls was fabulous. Thank you. !!!
I will be ordering again.
I bought this beautiful cotton on sale along with cotton kings and I got free shipping. I wanted to give it a try as the weight is fingering, I started making Summer top and got amazed with the easiness of the work. It is very soft, easy to crochet with and have a really beautiful stich definition. The colors are very rich which gives you plenty of ideas on what to make with it.
I made colorful crop tops that I sold at our local market. My customers where very satisfied about the feel of this yarn on their skin.
I strongly recommend tjis cotton for any project. It is affordable and has a rich color palette.
I absolutely love this yarn, the amount of colors just make me want to order them all.
I have been looking a long time to find any cotton in Australia and never found anything.
After a visit to my native country Denmark, I stumbled on to the hobbii web site and to my delight I finally found what I have been looking for.
The quality of the cotton is superb, soft and great to work with.
The service from the team is fantastic and I would and have recommended fellow craft people to take advantage of ordering their yarn from hobbii
I love this yarn, I have used it for anything from Amigurumi to Clothing as well as afghans, i love the vast amount of colors available, I always find the colors I'm looking for.
As I have problems finding cotton yarn of this quality where I live, i always come back not only to this yarn but also to Hobbii, I have ordered many different times and every time I receive the shipment in time, it's always been in perfect condition. It's easy to stay updated with the shipping date and if you sign up for the emails, you are always aware of the awesome sales.
