How To Spot The Best Knitting Fibers For Your Project?

September 12, 2022

1.      Increased Quality, Lowered Moisture

A high-quality knitting fiber should keep you as dry as possible, without feeling harsh on your skin. This is why it is crucial to select a knitwear fabric that is qualitative and rather pay more for it than feeling scorched and humid.

2.      Thin Versus Bulky

The lighter the fabric, the more comfortable on your skin. For a knitted summer dress, a thinner yarn is to be preferred.  However, for those chilly winter nights, a heavier fiber is better, since it increases your body temperature and keeps you nice and warm.

3.      All The Fuzz

Fuzziness and fluffiness might sound great for winter, but during summer, the fuzziness of the fiber reduces the skin’s breathability, leaving you sweaty and dehydrated. Make sure to select a knitting yarn that is appropriate to your knitting design and season.  

4.      Worsted Weight Yarn

The worsted weight yarn is a top choice if you’re looking for something in between summer and winter. Not too lightweight, nor too heavy, it sits comfortably on the skin, while offering enough heat and air flow at the same time. The worsted weight fiber is an excellent choice also for the knitting beginners, since it has a clear stitch and it’s easy to knit.

In the end, it’s all about necessities when choosing your knitting supplies. The trick is to always keep in mind that the quality, density and weight of the fiber are the top indicators of a smartly picked knitting yarn, no matter the season.
