YARN Brand – Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK [50g = 125m (137yds)] You can find the yarn here!

You can easily substitute with your favourite yarn, for the best results I recommend using a fine to medium weight yarn in Cotton or Acrylic. Another great cotton yarn I like to use to make my amigurumi is the Rainbow cotton yarn from Hobbii, this yarn is available in 8/4 = 4ply, 8/8 = dk and they also do a 8/6 which is somewhere in-between the other two.
