What actually is a gradient yarn?
It doesn't matter if gradient wool, gradient yarn or yarn with gradient. A gradient yarn is a bobble consisting of several threads connected by fine knots. The threads are then wound in the desired thickness, depending on how many threads you order your Bobbel. This then creates a beautiful gradient yarn, also called Bobbel with gradient. We always try to make each individual Bobbel unique, so that every Bobbel becomes something very special.
How do I order gradient yarn?
To make shopping in our shop as easy as possible for you, we have prepared various bobbles and gradient yarns in our range for you. All of our products are generally available with 3 - 8 threads and in running lengths between 600 and 1200 running meters. Of course, you can also register your own ideas or wishes for your own personal color gradient yarn with us at any time - of course without registering. You can contact us by Mail, Facebook or by telephone to have exactly the winding you want order what you would like. We will then create the desired item for you and pack your shopping cart - at no additional cost to you! Regardless of whether you are looking for a Bobbel with 100g, 200g or 500g, you are guaranteed to find it with us.
Can I also crochet with gradient yarn?
Of course you can crochet as well as knit with any of our bobbles. Traditionally, our gradient yarns are suitable for both, because as a thin yarn, for example 4-ply, they have the properties of a lace yarn, but can also be used with a higher thread count as a thicker crochet yarn. In general, our gradient yarn is very versatile. You can use it as a lace yarn for shawls as well as sock yarn for socks. And otherwise there are no limits to your creativity. No matter if you want to knit an elegant top as a lady or if you want a thick loop for the winter. You're on the safe side with our color gradient yarn, because you can order each bobble the way you need it. And we also have matching knitting instructions for this.
What are our bobbles made of?
Our bobbles are made of 50% cotton and 50% polyacrylic. This makes our gradient yarn very durable, tear-resistant and absorbent. And as a big plus, everything with excellent wearing comfort. Of course, there are also other variants of gradient wool, such as Bobbel made of Merino. However, with our offer we want to concentrate on offering you all possible colors and color gradients as usual until we dedicate ourselves to a new product. We even had Bobbel made of Merino before, but there was a problem with various EU directives that made life difficult for us. That's why we decided to only offer them again as soon as we can be sure that we won't have any more problems with gradient Merino yarns.
How long do I have to wait for my bobble?
After you have added your Bobbel to your shopping cart and paid for it, everything goes very quickly. Your personal gradient yarn is handmade by us and made ready for shipping. Your Bobbel will then usually be shipped within 1 - 3 days. The shipping sometimes only takes place after 3 days, because we only produce each color gradient yarn when you have ordered it. If many knitters buy a yarn at the same time, it can take a while.But not longer than 3 days! After that, every bobble is guaranteed to be ready for shipping and will be shipped

Gradient yarn as sock yarn?

In the near future we will try to offer sets with which you can also use our yarns as sock yarn.
