Introducing a super soft cake yarn with beautiful colour changes that are bound to give you festive and sparkly/harmoniously muted/crazy wild colour combination.

Perhaps you are already familiar with cake yarns from such brands as Mayflower and Cotton Kings. If this is giving you the munchies, you should know that cake is just a term for the way the yarn has been wound :) Our very own Twister stands out because it is twined, which makes it easy to knit with.

The amazing colours unfold underway, and it is a joy to see the gradual colour changes. This cake gives you a whole kilometre of yarn, which means that in one single cake, you will have enough yarn to knit or crochet an entire shawl or scarf. The glorious cotton has been joined by acrylic, rendering the thread lighter and at the same time providing a more stable shape for the end result. Twister is perfect for shawls and scarf, but is really a multipurpose yarn. Moreover, it is easy to maintain since it is machine washable. Please note that the thread has been tied together at the colour changes. It is simply impossible to avoid in 1000 metres of yarn in 5 different colours :)

As a rule, crocheting uses up more yarn than knitting. For this reason you may experience that your knitting does not “eat up” all of the cake in for example a knitted shawl. Naturally this will depend on which project and pattern you choose. Normally, it does not present an issue when there is excess yarn - but it makes it worth considering whether you want to start knitting from the inside or the outside of the cake.
