Medium weight yarns (Worsted, Aran, Afghan, 9-12 WPI)

Below are our Medium weight yarns, grouped alphabetically by fiber content.

We're using the Yarn Council Standard Yarn Weight System categories to classify these yarns as Medium. You may also find thes yarns listed as: Worsted, Aran, Afghan. The matches to the standard weight names are not exact, but they're usually a good guidepost - ask us if you're not sure!

We've also included some helpful data on yarns such as Wraps Per Inch (WPI), and gauge for knitting (designated by 'K') and crochet (designated by 'C'). WPI is a good way to compare yarn weights directly.
