Fingering Weight Yarn

When it comes down to the specifics in knitting, it’s important to know your yarn weights and types, in order to pick out the perfect yarn weight for your knitting and crocheting projects. With quite a few types out there, it may get a tad bit overwhelming to learn about each yarn weight and its use accordingly, but fear not! We’ve broken down this information to make it easier for you to know what’s what in the world of knitting. From fingering weight yarns to worsted weight yarns – read on to learn about it all!

The thickness and bulkiness, or thinness and how delicate a certain knitting yarn is, is all determined by the weight of a yarn. To know what the weight of a yarn is, is crucial for the kind of knitting project you have. In simple words, the weight of your yarn is what helps you tell how many stitches it will take you to knit 1 inch. Let’s get into the different yarn weights available.

Fingering Weight Yarn

Being super lightweight and extremely soft, this smooth and supple knitting yarn is very unique and versatile in its nature. Whether its baby items, hats, scarves, mittens or even shawls and wraps – fingering weight yarn is an ideal yarn for your knitting projects.

To get a better understanding of this yarn, we could take a look at some heavier weight yarns for context. Lace weight yarn is one such yarn that’s in fact even finer than fingering weight yarn.

Sport and DK Weight Yarn

Weighing heavier than fingering weight yarn, these two knitting yarns are often considered to be interchangeable, however that isn’t entirely the case as sport weight yarn is actually a bit lighter and finer than dk weight yarn. However, that said, both these knitting yarns are super soft and warm, and very versatile in their nature. These are the best options to go for if you’re thinking of knitting up some babywear, blankets, or even scarves. These yarns are suitable for pretty much any knitting project of yours that requires a yarn weight heavier than fingering weight yarn and lace weight yarn.

Aran and Worsted Weight Yarn

In comparison to fingering weight yarn, worsted weight yarn is actually twice its weight on the weight chart! Being one of the most used weight yarns in the knitting game, this yarn is in high demand – mostly because of its weight and how it's quite suitable for most knitting and crocheting projects, as it lies right in the middle of the yarn weight list.

Worsted weight yarn is often deemed interchangeable with Aran weight yarn, as both are quite close to each other in terms of weight. Aran is however, a bit heavier than worsted yarn and is also known as heavy worsted weight. Find yourself in a knitters paradise at Fillory Yarn, where quality is priority and options are endless!
