Meet the Rainbow family’s medium-sized Rainbow 8/6.

Hobbii Rainbow is one of our own series of cotton yarn, both durable and soft, in a really high quality, which has been a big favorite for a long time.

With a yardage of 105m / 50g, Rainbow 8/6 is an especially applicable thickness, just between 8/4 and 8/8 in the same series. Neither too thin and fine, nor too chunky and rustic, but just right.

Cotton fibres are good for withdrawing excess heat from the body and Rainbow 8/6 is thus very suitable for clothing. It would be great in a lovely summer top, a blouse or a crocheted summer jacket. There are lots of possibilities. The Rainbow series is found in a plethora of nuances, so it should be possible to find the right nuance for your creative projects.

Rainbow 8/6 is also good for e.g. crocheted teddy bears or amigurumi. By the way, did you know that for most crochet projects, e.g. teddy bears etc, you can use the same pattern in all Rainbow’s sizes? You adjust the size of the crochet hook to the thickness of the yarn you are using, and the only difference is the size of the finished project. Lace, 8/4, 8/6, 8/8 = mini, small, larger, largest. Ready, set, go!
