The Danish brand Mayflower was established in 1951 and since then it has been known as “the one with the ship” by knitting- and crocheting enthusiasts all over the world. Originally, Mayflower is known for their lovely cotton yarn, but today they offer various kinds of yarn including acrylic, mohair, silk, wool and linen. Mayflower’s diversity and high quality make the brand incredibly popular among knitting- and crocheting enthusiasts.

The Most Popular Mayflower Yarn
At Hobbii, you will always find a large selection of Mayflower yarn. For example, you will discover that we have the popular Cotton 8/4 Junior in various colors, the ultimate sock yarn 1st Class and the classic Easy Care wool yarn. These are of course just a few examples from our large selection of Mayflower yarn.
This Mayflower's cotton yarn is made of 100% soft cotton and is available in many different colors. The popular cotton yarn can be used for crocheting or knitting e.g. dishcloths and washcloths which many people have discovered. More and more have acknowledged that cloths with plastic are neither good for us nor the environment, and that is why, it has become incredibly popular to create your own. These cloths are quick to knit or crochet, and you get a really good quality, if you choose cotton from Mayflower. Hobbii has a large selection of cotton yarn. See all cotton yarn her.
Another classic yarn from mayflower is the very popular Easy Care yarns. This yarn comes in many different types. If you are looking for something colorful, buy Easy Care Print, but if you prefer thick yarn, you might like Easy Care Big. A common characteristic of all these yarns, is that they are all made of 100% merino wool. Merino wool is a great material for both knitting and crochet. See our entire collection of merino yarn here.
This is one of Mayflower's most gorgeous yarns. The yarn consist of 76% soft mohair wool and 24% silk. This yarn is great, if you are planning to make a sweater or a cardigan, as the result looks very luxurious. Many knitters choose to combine this yarn with others.

What our customers say about Mayflower
This Mayflower cotton mereno classic is wonderful in a big comfy cardigan. It is warm, but breathes making. It my favorite every day sweater for winter days or chilly Spring evenings.
I have just started socks for my granddaughter who is soon to be 19 and has decided that she likes her Nana's socks and would I make her some! She was pretty specific about the yarn - it should be soft as her skin is very sensitive and machine washable please. I am working with the Mayflower colour 2010 which is a lovely shade of blue. This yarn has a wonderful hand, soft and very comfortable to work with. I'm sure my granddaughter will be delighted when I present her with these for her birthday
I just received my first Mayflower Havana cake (Daffodil) last week and it is even more beautiful in person. It is soft and the variegated colors are amazing. I cannot wait to make something with it. I have made several things with the Twister yarn (and been VERY pleased with it) and this yarn feels exactly the same, so I have no doubts about working with the Havana yarn. I will DEFINITELY be buying more of them and hope to make some sort of boho granny square/stripe blanket with it - I'm expecting it to look amazing!
I just finished making a sweater for my grand daughter with this yarn. The exact same color as shown here "Mayflower" . Ive been completely pleased with any yarn Ive gotten from Hobbi. I haven't even been dissatisfied with the wool blends either.
I'm in love with this yarn!!! It was my first time ordering from Hobbii and my first time working with fine yarn. I just started crocheting early this past summer and, what can I say, I'm "hooked"! LOL. Pun definitely intended. I was concerned, at first, thinking that I won't be able to work with such fine yarn, but I've already started making a pretty scarf and the gradient color transition is magnicent! Also, I am really pleasantly surprised how easy it is to work with this super soft yarn. I'm loving it!!! So glad that I went past my comfort zone and tried this. The colors are just beautiful!!!
I'd been searching for two colors (specifically the right shades of army green and dusty rose) for literally months, and I was super hopeful when I finally found this yarn. I got colors 1487 and 1488, and I. Am. In. Love. They're exactly what I had in mind! Plus, this yarn is super soft, fun to work with, and the colors are beautiful. I will definitely be back for more skeins in the future!
The colors are so vibrant and the yarn so soft! The cotton:the Rainbow 8/4. I am currently making wash cloths for the face. I plan on using them in my Christmas gifts. Not only is the yarn great - but the service is fantastic! I've never had to contact the company yet, but if their representatives as as great as the staff that fills the order I'm sure I won't have a problem.
My first order! This yarn has travelled far to get to me, going through customs. Yet, it arrived intact, and rather quickly. I am very happy with this Goodie bag and will be ordering again! This yarn is the best bargain going and the yarn is quality! So is the customer service! My next order will be huge! Well worth the trip. Thank You!
I've never used this Ribbon yarn before, but I was intrigued when I saw it. The price was great! So I order a dozen skeins and I wasn't disappointed!!! Beautiful colors, lovely texture, and easy to crochet. I'm half way through my first basket to give for Christmas. I'll have to post a picture when its finished. Love this Ribbon!
This great yarn was good to work with, I used 30 of colour 372 to create a purple shell stitch throw blanket in crochet. The Yarn was consistent, only a few magic knots appeared and I used the Russian method to join and this worked well with this yarn. it washed well, dried quickly and kept its shape. Highly recommend.
