All yarn is on cones in approximate amounts



All dyed yarns may be purchased by the case in differing weights.  Some yarns come in an undyed state for dyeing.  If there is interest in either of these, please call (248) 423-9200 for more information.




For those unfamiliar with coned yarn, it is the same as balled yarn, except that it has one long strand instead of the ten that usually make up a bag or pound.  In addition, it usually costs less than the same amount of yarn in balls.  


To determine the yardage of a ball of yarn from the amount on a cone, divide the one-pound yardage by ten.  Most coned yarns will fall into the same categories as hand-knit yarns in balls/skeins/hanks.  A yarn having less than 1000 yards/pound, or about 100 yards/50-gram ball, will be a worsted-weight or chunky-weight yarn and will usually be knitted on a needle size 7 and larger.  Yarns having between 1000 and about 1400 yards/pound will be considered a DK-weight yarn and will use between a needle size 7 to about a needle 4-5.  Above 1400 yards/pound may be a sport-weight yarn to a baby-weight/fingering yarn and can use needles from 4-5 to 0, depending upon the yardage.  However, nothing is set in stone and all of this may vary, depending upon the individual yarn.
