Sport Weight Yarn

Sport-weight yarns are a good all-rounder for knitters and crocheters as they sit between fingering and DK (Double knit). Although sometimes considered as interchangeable with DK, Sport-weight yarns are a little lighter or finer, making them perfect for all-year-round garments, socks and baby items.

The high demand for Sport-weight yarns has led to greater innovation – the color range is both extensive and exciting, and now includes self-patterning, hand-dyed effect and ‘speckled’ specimens.

Furthermore, this yarn weight is available in a whole host of natural fibers, such as alpaca, cotton, linen, merino, mohair, silk, and viscose.
