I need your help to tell me Yarn Conversions.
Frequently, I am asking. Mikey you are using Caron Simply Soft. I’m in Australia, UK, Europe, South America or where ever, what is the equivalent brand of what you are using.
I always respond that I don’t know. I truly don’t know because I do read the yarn information on the package but our plies of yarn don’t equal the plies of yarns made in other countries. Here in North America, our yarns are thicker than the rest of the globe. We use a lot of acrylics verses animal fibres and more.
I am looking for expertise on the following brands. Please leave me your notes in the bottom of this blog so I can make a conversion chart of sizing.
- Bernat Super Value
- Bernat Satin
- Patons Canadiana
- Caron Simply Soft
- Caron One Pound
- Red Heart Super Saver
I live in Canada and don’t have any personal experiences with yarn that may be sold in other countries that are equivalent to these brands. Some of these brands are not for sale in their countries and people are asking me for the equilavents.
If you have certain knowledge, without guessing, I would love to hear from you. Please leave your comments below… NOT ON FACEBOOK because I need to reference this information in a week or two and our Facebook goes a mile a minute and I won’t be able to find this information.
Put in your comments for example Caron One Pound = ????? – Country.
