HELP! I'm Failing Yarn 101


Recommended Posts

Where can I learn more about yarn:? I know I may come across as a complete idiot, but...


:thinking2 What is the difference between a hank and a skein?


:thinking2 What do all these terms mean...sport/fingering/worsted/mercerized/etc?


:thinking2 What do some folks have against acrylics?


I'm kind of at a loss here...:blu

You are very welcome. We were all there at some point. I still don't quite get it all!!!


As far as people not liking acrylics, it's just personal preference, self-proclaimed "yarn snobs" :)


I personally, PREFER acrylic!! It's easier to work with and easier to find :)
