A yarn review about Yarn and Colors Epic. We have already used this yarn for many different projects, so it was time to write a review! In this blog we discuss the quality of the yarn, projects to make with this yarn and we give our opinion about the yarn.
Have you tried this yarn?
About the yarn
Yarn and Colors Epic is made of 100% cotton and suitable for crochet hook or knitting needles 5.0mm. A ball of 50 grams/1.8 ounces has 75meters/82 yards. Yarn and Colors Epic is available in 100 colors!
- The yarn is 100% cotton
- Suitable for crochet hook or knitting needles 5.0mm/H/US 8
- 100 different colors
- Suggested retail price is €1,50 per skein
A couple of colors we really like are Petroleum, Glass and Jade Gravel. With 100 different colors a lot of color combinations are possible 🙂 .
This cotton yarn is mat, sturdy and slightly thicker (aran weight yarn). It is lovely to crochet with this yarn. It does not split quickly. A nice cotton yarn for the slightly bigger projects.
We have already used the yarn for various crochet projects, such as a pillow, hot water bottle cover and a phone case. With just one skein of Yarn and Colors Epic you can make this key cord or try the free crochet pattern for this plant hanger.
As you can see above, we have used the yarn several times for different projects. The yarn is of a good quality and very nice to work with. The price per skein is also not too bad. In short, we are a big fan of this yarn!

Hi Ingrid and Marjan 🙂
I’m so glad I found your review, I’m eyeing this yarn currently as the colours are beautiful and I was thinking of crocheting a colourful baby blanket.
I’d love your thoughts on if you think this yarn is soft enough for a baby blanket, or a bit too sturdy?
Thank you for your comment!
The yarn and the colors of the yarn are beautiful. I love working with it. Yes, it would say it’s soft enough for a baby blanket.
Please be aware that it’s a 100% cotton yarn and therefore it can be quite heavy for a blanket. Please keep this in mind when choosing a pattern and needle/hook size.
I have also worked with Hobbii Rainbow Cotton 8/8. This is a similar yarn to Yarn and Colors Epic. I think the cotton from Hobbii is slightly softer than Epic.
Have a creative day!
