  1. worsted yarn

    Worsted yarn is a type of yarn that is tightly spun from long-staple wool fibers which have been combed to align them parallel to each other. This process results in a smoother, stronger, and more durable yarn that is less likely to pill or fuzz. It has a crisp finish and produces a more defined and crisp stitch definition when knitted or crocheted, making it ideal for detailed work such as cables or intricate color patterns.
