Knitting Yarn

Knitting yarn plays a crucial part in the technique of knitting and the bright and colorful variety add a lot of fun to the process of knitting. The level of quality of a completed knitted garment relies upon the quality of yarn used - the product you end up with is a direct result of the yarn you use; if you select quality you will have a quality finished garment, if you however decide to use a lesser yarn it will show in the quality of your finished work.There are hundreds of colorful types of yarns but is really important to choose a yarn material that matches your chosen knitting project. If your knitting pattern recommends a very lightweight smaller yarn and insteady you decide to use a larger chunky yarn, then your end project will be a completely  different size than what the pattern states.  This is easy to adjust for when your project is scarves and blankets unfortunately  it is not as easy when you are knitting items such as hats, sweaters and socks - remember to keep this in mind when choosing your yarn and you are following a pattern.

Knitting yarn are available in a range of weights

Knitting yarn weight refers to the thickness of the yarn, these vary from super fine to super bulky.

Types of Knitting Yarns

There are also a vast variety of knitting yarn types, some are made up of materials such as cotton, organic cotton, silk and wool or even a mixture of materials.  Different materials of yarn are used for different types of projects. Yarn made from wook is one of the most popular types of yarn and is widely used.  Bamboo yarn is becoming popular which may sound a little strange.  Bamboo grass once harvested is distilled into cellulose and then spun into yarn.  A garment knitted from bamboo yarn is cool and breathable. Cotton yarn is also cool and light-weight and cool and although some knitters don't like knitting a cotton yarn it does have some advantages as it holds together well and doesn't pill.  It is also strong, durable and machine washable.

Mercerized cotton yarn is a high end variety of knitting yarn and is more lustrous than conventional cotton. This shiny yarn brings a touch of elegance to all finished knitted garments. Organic cotton yarn has also started to become more popular as more and more people are turning to organic natural products in their every day life.  Many of the highest quality yarns available are manufactured from natural fibers from plants and animals such as cashmere, wools, alpaca, cottons and mohair.  Each of these yarns have a different feel and thickness which you need to consider when you are choosing your pattern and yarn and howe you want your finished garment to turn out.

Recycled silk yarn is made from recycled silk, often being the  waste silk from Indian industrial mills. Small projects such as scarves, hats, bags etc  can be completed by using recycled silk yarn. Mothproof wool is a  knitting yarn that has been treated with chemicals to repel moths.  Natural alpaca yarn has a soft texture, whcih is a high quality soft fiber that is a lot of fun to work with.

Knitters appreciate the wide variety of yarn that is now available and you can find anything from plain yarn to exotic yarns such as cashmere and alpaca.   The yarn you choose for your knitting projects is a much more complicated process than simply choosing a color that appeals to you.  Although yarn color obviously matters, the most important aspect about the yarn you pick is that it matches your project and that it is the best quality available in your price range.

Another important thing to consider when you are selecting your yarn is how will it can be cleaned.  If you are knitting a baby garment or blanket then you will probably want it be be able to be machine washed as dry cleaning just doesn't suit, mums have enough to worry about without having to get their babies clothes dry cleaned.

As you can see choosing the right yarn and fiber is an important part of the knitting process.  If you choose the wrong yarn for your knitting project it will unfortunately be obvious in your finished project.  However, if you select the correct yarn then you are heading in the right direction to end up with a quality finished project - well as long as your knitting techinque has been perfected!
