* GUIDELINES ONLY: The above reflect the most commonly used gauges and needle or hook
sizes for specific yarn categories. ** Lace weight yarns are usually knitted or crocheted on
larger needles and hooks to create lacy, openwork patterns. Accordingly, a gauge range is difficult
to determine. Always follow the gauge stated in your pattern.

Spinning Method
There are many ways of spinning yarn. You may want to try a variety. How round is it in crosssection?
A rounder yarn gives better stitch definition. Single-ply yarns pill faster.
Single Ply: one thick strand
Multi Ply: two or more strands spun together
Marled: different colored strands spun together
I-cord: braided or knit into a thicker, loftier strand
Tape/ribbon: woven or knit flat
Boucl: fluffy or hairy yarn
Slubbed: different colors and/or fibers speckled in the yarn
Thick-and-thin: inconsistent thickness
Novelty: anything unusual"the skys the limit!
Yarn Labels
Labels should always include fiber content, weight of the skein (in ounces and/or grams),
yardage, country of origin, and price. Usually they will also give you the color name or number,
gauge and recommended needle size (remember this is an estimate only; everybody knits to a
slightly different gauge!). Other information you will sometimes find is dye lot (if youre doing a
garment, make sure you get enough that matches) and washing instructions (see the guide on the
following page).

Instructions
Yarn is made of fibers spun together.
Well be looking at the differences in fiber, weight, and spinning.
Picking a yarn is a matter of knowing what characteristics work best for the piece you have in mind.
Often you have to weigh opposing elements (eg, is it more important to be soft or durable? Is it more
important to be washable or cheaper?), though it always gives an especially warm feeling to find a yarn
that fits perfectly with everything you want. (This is one reason there are so many blends of different
fibers.)
When you are considering substituting a yarn, matching gauge is usually the most important factor
(especially for sized items),
Fiber
Fibers that are very twisty and kinky (like wool) will make a lighter, loftier yarn. Fibers with a long
staple length (the length of each individual fiber) make more durable, stronger yarn, but short staple
length lends great softness. Thicker fibers are coarser, but wear longer with less pilling.
Human-made fibers:
Acrylic: Made from fossil fuels; long lasting, hard wearing, can be soft or scratchy, tends to pill,
washable, often blended with natural fibers, cheap.
Nylon/Polyamide: provides durability and stretch to yarn (most often sock yarn), often spun as a
fine thread to hold loftier fibers together.
Microfiber/Polyester: cut to short staple lengths, polyester fleece (or microfiber) can be a soft,
durable component of yarns
Spandex/Lycra: provides elasticity
Protein-Based Fibers:
Warm, light, water-repellent
Wool: From sheep. Fibers are covered in tiny scales which help them stick
together. Wool has elasticity or memory that allows it to stretch and
snap back into shape.
Merino: this kind of sheep has the reputation for the softest wool
Superwash: Wool thats been treated to prevent felting and pilling
Mohair: From angora goats. Doesnt felt like wool. Sometimes incorporated
into yarn smoothly, sometimes brushed to give a fuzzy halo.
Cashmere: From cashmere goats. Very warm, very soft, and very expensive.
Alpaca: Warmer and softer than wool; not as good for felting; gives a subtle
halo.
Llama: Coarser than alpaca (exception: baby llama), otherwise similar
Angora: From angora rabbits. Will felt; gives a very fuzzy halo that will
shed. Very soft.
Silk: From silkworm cocoons. Staple length can be very long, so it is quite
strong. Raw silk does not have the sheen silk is usually known for. Silk is
soft, slippery, and does not have the memory of wool
Other (Camel, Yak, Delaka, dog, etc): lots of animal fibers can be spun!
Azlon/Milk/Soy: Human-made protein fibers from various sources; these are
soft and shiny, but not as strong as silk.

Cellulose (plant) fibers:
Cool, drapey, absorbent.
Cotton: Soft, and gets softer, but tends to sag. Knit on a smaller needle than you would for
wool, try to use an elastic stitch (such as ribbing), and make sure to wash and dry your
swatch.
Mercerized: this process gives cotton yarn a shiny look with deeper colors
Pima/Egyptian: These long-staple cottons are more durable
Linen: Made from flax fibers; pure linen is hard on the hands and is very inelastic. It relaxes
after washing, so ribbed borders will slouch.
Rayon/Viscose/Tencel/Lyocell/Modal/Bamboo/Sugarcane/etc.: Factory-made fiber
(Asheville used to have a giant plant in Enka to make trees into yarn), all these names
refer to the same basic kind of yarn. Soft and slippery, it makes for very drapey fabrics
(expect sag). Keep it light!
Hemp: a very rough fiber on it own (good for bags and loofahs), softer when mixed with
other fibers; aromatic
Nettles/Ramie: one of the oldest fibers used by humans, rough on its own
Banana Fiber: made from the bark of the plant, not the fruit, makes a silky-soft, inelastic
yarn

Yarn Weights
Big fat yarn knits fast, but makes a very thick finished piece (not suitable for baby hats, for instance).
Tiny yarn makes for a very fine, smooth finished piece, but only machines have the time to make large solid pieces at such fine gauge. Note that terms like baby, sport, worsted, aran, chunky, etc. have a lot of overlap with each other. For example, Ravelry classifies Vintage Chunky as aran, and has no chunky classification at all!
