Going in line with the world of the game that is made out of yarn, the amiibo set of figures for Yoshi’s Woolly World will also be made out of yarn the yarn look on the figure is not some good paint job or an optical illusion, it is actually made of yarn!
Here is Nintendo’s official description for the upcoming Yarn Yoshi amiibo:
“Made from actual yarn, Yoshi has never been more adorable! Kind-hearted, naturally protective of others, and perpetually hungry, Yoshi is always up for adventure…there are so many mysteries to explore and new things to find! Yoshis can flutter their legs to jump incredibly high and can use their long tongue to snare enemies or other handy things.“
The yarn Yoshi amiibo set of figures is available in three different collectible colors: the Green Yarn Yoshi, Pink Yarn Yoshi, and Blue Yarn Yoshi. Just like many other amiibo figures, the Yarn Yoshi is compatible not only for its series game, but also for other related Nintendo titles.
