What is yarn?

If you’re a knitter or crocheter, you know that yarn is the star of the show. You use yarn to create your projects, so it’s essential to choose the right type of yarn for your project. There are many different types of yarn, and each type has its own unique qualities. The most important quality of the yarn is its gauge, which is how many stitches per inch it produces. The gauge of yarn will determine how dense your finished project will be. Another vital quality to consider is the fibre content of the yarn. Different fibres have different properties, so choosing a fibre that will give your project the qualities you want is essential. If you need help determining what kind of yarn you need for your project, our experts can help you choose the perfect yarn. We have a wide range of yarns for sale online, and we’re always happy to help you find the perfect one for your needs.

The different types of yarn

Many types of yarn can be used for various knitting and crochet projects. The most common type of yarn is worsted weight yarn, which is a medium-weight yarn that is easy to work with and can be used for a wide range of projects. Other popular types of yarn include chunky yarn, ideal for making cozy winter hats and scarves, and sock weight yarn, perfect for making socks and other small items.   No matter what type of project you’re working on, we have the perfect type of yarn for sale online.

How to choose the suitable yarn for your project

When it comes to choosing the suitable yarn for your project, there are a few things you need to take into account. The first is the type of project you’re making. For example, are you crocheting a blanket? Knitting a sweater? Weaving a tapestry? The second is the weight or thickness of the yarn. And finally, you need to think about the colour and fibre content.

Crochet Yarn

At Sydney Yarn, we have a wide range of crochet yarns available for purchase online. Our selection includes popular brands such as Alize, Banu, Diva, Himalaya, Kartopu, Lanoso, Nako, Oren Bayan, Raffia/Paper Yarn, Rozetti, and YarnArt, as well as our own exclusive Sydney Yarn range. Crochet yarn comes in many different thicknesses, known as weights. The most common weights are DK (double knit), worsted/aran and chunky. The weight you choose will depend on the project you are working on – for example, a delicate lace shawl would require a lighter-weight yarn, whereas a cosy winter scarf would need a thicker yarn. As well as the different weights, crochet yarn also comes in different fibres. The most popular choice is acrylic, which is affordable and easy to care for. However, you could try yarns made from wool or cotton if you want a more luxurious feel. These natural fibres can be slightly more challenging but produce beautiful results. When choosing your crochet yarn, it is essential to consider the finished item. Consider how you want it to look and feel, and choose your yarn accordingly. If you are still deciding which one to go for, our friendly customer service team would be happy to help!

Yarn care tips

If you’re like most knitters and crocheters, you have a stash of yarn that you’ve accumulated over the years. And while it’s tempting to keep adding to your collection, taking care of the yarn you already have is essential. So here are some tips for taking care of your yarn:
  • Store your yarn in a cool, dry place. Heat and humidity can cause the yarn to become brittle and break easily.
  • Keep your yarn away from pets. Pets can damage yarn with their claws or teeth and track in dirt and dust that can dull the fibres.
  • Protect your yarn from pests. Moths and insects are attracted to natural fibres like wool, so store your yarn in an airtight container or bag. You can also add a few moth balls to the container to help deter pests.
  • Don’t store your yarn in plastic bags. Plastic bags can trap moisture and cause mould or mildew to form on your yarn.
