YARN / WOOL SIZES

Yarn sizes are a potential source of confusion.  One system classifies yarns into 5 categories by the approximate diameter of the yarn.

A = Fingering or fine-weight yarns, good for thin socks and light baby clothes

B = Sport or Medium-weight yarns, good for indoor sweaters, baby things, dresses and suits

C = Worsted-weight or knitting yarns, good for outdoor sweaters, hat, mittens, afghans, and slippers

D = Bulky-weight yarns, used for rugs, heavy jackets, and crafts

E = Extra bulky-weight yarns, used mostly for rugs
