MERINO/ANGORA/ALPACA 60% merino (very soft wool), 20% angora (bunnies) and 20% alpaca. The 2 ply yarn is between a worsted and a bulky weight (a heavy worsted) 3 - 3½ stitches per inch on size 9 - 11 needles. The texture and softness of this yarn lends itself to a looser knit for sweaters. You'll need 7 - 10 skeins for an adult sweater, 3 - 4 skeins for a child's sweater, 1 or 2 skeins for a hat or scarf.
2 PLY MULTI COLORED YARN
~Heavy DK (between worsted and sport). 4-5 stitches/inch on size 6-10 needles. Full skeins 180 yards, approximately 3 oz. Half skeins 90 yards, approximately 1 1/2 oz.
2 PLY TWO TONE YARN I have the mill ply one strand of white and one strand of grey together. When I dye it, the white and grey take on the color differently, so you get a yarn with two shades of the same color.
~Bulky weight 2 1/2 - 3 stitches/inch on size 11-13 needles. Full skein 104 yards, approximately 3 oz. Half skeins 52 yards, approximately 1 1/2 oz.
~Worsted weight Full skeins 150 yrds, approximately 3 oz. Half skeins 75 yards, approximately 1 1/2 oz
You'll need the same number of skeins of all weights of yarn for the same projects.
1 or 2 skeins for a hat or scarf, 3 or 4 skeins for a child's sweater, 7-10 skeins for an adult's sweater. If you'd like help figuring out how much yarn you'll need for a project, or any other questions, please get in touch.
