A few weeks ago we were all excited to show you the most exquisite merino from Woolfolk, and now they are back again! This time it’s their super bulky weight Hygge that has us dreaming of the chunkiest and softest knits we can imagine.

Make sure to read to the end of the post to find out how you can win a skein!

Much like Woolfolk‘s aran weight Far, Hygge has a chainette structure, but this time with a smudgey soft stitch definition. A blend of merino, alpaca and a touch of silk gives the ultimate softness that made us fall for Woolfolk in the first place and their modest palette means a range of sophisticated shades.

Woolfolk Hygge

Hygge is a wonderful Danish word that has no direct English equivalent, but roughly translates to the feeling of cosiness. Indeed, you may know the word from our baby jumper pattern of the same name! We think it sums up the warmth and texture of this yarn beautifully.

Woolfolk have worked with designer Olga Buraya-Kefelian (you might know her better as Olgajazzy) to create The Hygge Collection. The lightness of the fibre and Olga’s clever details means garments that are modern and uncluttered, eliminating the heavy shapes that can sometimes result from working with such thick yarn.

Of course, we all know that the thicker the yarn the speedier the knitting! Loopette Sophie cast on the Traef hat in the morning and was ready to go for a stylish Autumn walk in a new hat by lunchtime! Sophie knit the slightly bigger slouchy version and still only used one skein of Hygge.

101 Comments on “Woolfolk Hygge

  1. I love the dirty seafoam color. Woolfolk yarn is so so soft! I’d love to win a skein of their new Hygge! Thanks

  2. What a gorgeous looking yarn! I’m in a “must have ALL the greys” phase right now, so Sky Grey it would have to be, but all the colours are lovely.

  3. This yarn sounds so beautiful and I would love to try it. For me it would be burgundy (perfect for a hat) as I love the richness and depth of the colour.

  4. I love the Dirty Sea Foam colourway. It feels a bit wrong to call it ‘dirty’ through – it’s a sublime colour and looks very squishable!

  5. Such gorgeous wool! I’m in love with the Raven colour – dark and mysterious and just perfect for the time of year. :)

  6. So difficult to choose but sky grey is so beautiful. Have just found you (thankfully) What a wonderful place

  7. I love all the colours, they just go together so well, but if I had to choose I think I’d go for darkest bronze.

  8. i just love the Deepest Bronze. The yarn looks very cosy and would love to experience how it feels to knit.

  9. I would have so much fun using the Burgundy for something cuddly, and it would be for ME! It would be a nice change from all the gifts I’ve been knitting lately. :-)

  10. Definitely Burgundy, a good colour a great number (a dozen…) and it will keep my throat warm when I can’t drink a glass of it!

  11. I’d love to win the ‘Silver’ shade of hygge, it gets me thinking of twinkling lights & beautiful glass baubles

  12. It would be a Dirty Sea Foam hat for me to wear as I walk along the winter beach and restore my soul.

  13. I love ‘burgundy’ as it embodies the word Hugge perfectly – warmth, softness and cosiness. A beautiful cowl would brighten grey days and keep the cold out.

  14. The burgundy for me please xxx
    I love all things purple/burgundy. My bath is sprayed in pelt by farrow and ball and I have cosy soft towels of the same colour!! But looking around my flat and wardrobe I have even more. So maybe too much? Then maybe raven. You choose xx

  15. I would choose ‘Sky Grey’ because when I see it I can’t decide if it is blue or grey! It changes every time. But seriously they are all gorgeous.

  16. I love the Dirty Sea Foam colourway. Although it feels a bit wrong to call it ‘dirty’ – it is a sublime colour and looks very squishable!

  17. Deepest Bronze would be my pick! Beautiful rich Jewel colour – would look good for livening up my standard black and grey moody winter wardrobe with a snood!

  18. All the colours encapsulate Hygge wonderfully but the Dirty Seafoam has such a great name so it’s got to be that!

  19. We will all be fighting over that last skein of Dirty Sea Foam! So perhaps I’ll step back and settle for Burgundy. All of the shades are gorgeous….
