yarn glossary: super

If you’re new to the crafting community or have even been a part of it for a while, you know that there are just so many different names and ways to separate the different yarn weights. Let’s be honest, it can be not only intimidating but also so confusing! I’ve been part of the crafting community for about 15 years and I still get confused. That’s why we have created the Yarn Glossary, a place to go for all things that have to do with names and weights, to help clear up any confusion while you’re yarn shopping. When talking about the weight of yarn, we are referring to how thick the strand of yarn is. Yarn weights go from 0-7, the higher the number is, the less stitches per inch you’ll have. 

This week we have Super! 

what is Super yarn?

Super is a CYC 6 yarn that works up super fast! It's most commonly used for cowls, scarves, and hats! It is a single ply, 80/20% blend of superwash merino wool and nylon. It has 76 yards per 100 grams. 


When using Super yarn, the common gauge for knitting is 7-11 stitches on 8-12.75mm knitting needles in stockinette stitch. For crochet, 7-9 stitches on 9-15mm crochet hook in double crochet.
