The great thing about yarn is it comes in an amazing variety of types and styles, allowing you make each pattern your own with color and texture by choosing a yarn that fits you. All you need to do to pick the yarn for your project is look at the weight of the yarn listed on the pattern and find a matching yarn that you love. Yarn weights range from lace weight yarn and super fine cotton thread, to the popular worsted weight, to bulky and super bulky yarns for projects that work up quickly. Besides yarn weight, you should also think about what the yarn is made of when selecting a yarn to use. Fiber contents range from natural fibers such as wool, cotton, and bamboo to synthetics such as acrylic and polyester, and everything in between. Pay attention to the care instructions listed on the yarn label to determine if the fiber content is appropriate for your project.
