#3 Light Worsted Weight Yarns


Used for baby and light-weight adult garments.

This is a classic weight for children's knits. The light gauge is the appropriate scale for children's designs and is a great choice for colorful knitting techniques like fair isle or intarsia. It is also great for children's or adult crochet projects because the fabric will not become too bulky when crocheted. Yarn types in this category are often made from cotton, cotton/synthetic blends, wool, acrylic or wool/synthetic blends.
