Know your yarn

Life is confusing enough without having to search, ponder and stress about the care of your masterpieces and everything you make is a masterpiece!

So I have tried to make this quick reference guide as simple as possible.

Every brand of yarn should list the weight of the yarn on its label.

Yarn Weights
The lower the number the the thinner the yarn. The higher the number the thicker the yarn
