Bulky Yarn

Posted on Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010 at 11:32 am

What number is the same as "worsted" when speaking of yarn weights?

Just curious because some brands will say "3" and some say "bulky" and I want to substitute a worsted weight yarn. Any and all help appreciated!

All these mean roughly the same weight of yarn:
worsted
medium
4-ply
weight group 4

Look for any of those designations. Yarn labeled "bulky" is usually weight group 5, a bit bigger than worsted. Sport weight is weight group 3, which is a little lighter than worsted. Years ago, each yarn ply was a realatively uniform size. Yarn was listed as 2-ply, 3-ply, and 4-ply. They correspond loosely with the weight group designations used today, even though tiny yarn can now be 4-ply. It no longer has anything to do with weight.
