Yarn weights go by so many different names, it can be difficult to keep track of what’s what! (For example, did you know that Fingering weight and Sock weight are one and the same?)
To help you out, we’ve compiled a chart using the yarn weight standards developed by the Craft Yarn Council, along with examples of Lion Brand Yarn in each category.
|Yarn Weight Symbol/Category Name||Commonly Used Names||Example of Lion Brand Yarn|

|LB Collection® Silk Mohair|
|DK, Light Worsted|
|LB Collection® Cotton Bamboo|

* Note: Although LB Collection® Wool Stainless Steel is listed on our website as a Category 1 Super Fine yarn, it may be used as a Category 0 yarn.
