What is 4 ply yarn?
Yarns have different plies based on how many single strands have been twisted together. Single plies consist of only one strand, and 4 ply yarns have four strands twisted together. This contributes to making the yarn less flexible and stronger and more durable. The more plies, the stronger the yarn. The ply of the yarn indicates its weight, meaning 2 ply, for example, is a lightweight yarn, while 4 ply is medium weight. The thickness of the yarn depends on the material, though, and not only the ply. 4 ply yarn is stronger than lesser ply versions, and so better suited for thicker, heavier items. But it’s also a finer and softer alternative than higher plies, so it’s suitable for delicate and detailed projects. It works both for knitting and crocheting.
What to do with 4 ply yarn
4 ply yarn is strong but delicate, making it a very versatile yarn that is great for a variety of different knitting and crocheting projects. Some things you might consider making out of it are:
- Baby clothes
- Gloves and mittens
