Yarn Weight Chart
(or 'how many WPI is that?')
|Yarn type||Wraps per inch (wpi)|
|Bulky||6 or fewer wpi|
|Double knit (DK)||11 wpi|
|Fingering or 4-ply||14 wpi|
|Lace, cobweb, superfine or thread||18 or more wpi|
Use an inch gauge or yarn gauge (above) to check the number of times you can wrap the yarn in an inch. Then use the chart above to find the weight of your yarn.
