Collection: Sport Weight Yarns

Sport weight yarn is possibly our favorite yarn weight. Sport weight yarns are great for knitting garments, as the resulting fabric is light enough to have lovely detail and fine stitches, but not so fine that it's cumbersome to knit a whole sweater with. Sport weight yarns are highly versatile and can be used for accessories, baby items, socks, as well as sweaters. Sport is a weight classification that signifies the yarn's thickness. In the Craft Yarn Council system, sport weight is a Number 2 Fine weight yarn, typically knitting at 23-26 stitches per 4 inches with US 3-5 needles.
