Worsted & Aran Weight Yarn & Wool
Aran weight yarns and worsted weight yarns are often interchangeable, but actually different weights. Worsted weight yarn is finer and knits on 4.5mm needles, and aran weight yarn (also known as heavy worsted or 10ply) is knitted on 5mm needles. If you love a speedy make, aran and worsted weights bring all the drape of a finer yarn but work up faster than their lightweight cousins, like DK yarn. Ideal for crochet and knitted garments, accessories and homeware, you can find plenty of inspiration from our aran knitting patterns & aran crochet patterns.
