Ever wonder what the difference was between #worsted and #aran weight #yarns? At first they seem interchangeable, but sometimes call for different needle sizes 😱

Aran is the equivalent of two strands of DK yarn, making it the perfect weight for vests, cardigans and blankets. Worsted is considered the same weight, but often calls for a different needle size due to its density. The difference between the yarns is in the way the fibres are spun. Aran is a woolen-spun yarn - it is lofty, warm and light, and can condense into denser fabric or bloom to cohere as a gauzy fabric. Worsted weight yarn is a worsted-spun yarn, smooth and dense; the stitches knit from a worsted weight yarn will have excellent definition and the finished garment will drape beautifully due to the compactness of the spun yarn.

This yarn is somewhere in between, incredibly versatile, great for sweaters and scarves!
