2 Ply Yarn

2 ply yarn, also known as lace weight yarn, is perfect for patterns that include intricate details. This is a delicate yarn that’s commonly used for light garments, such as shawls, wraps and baby knits. 

We typically recommend smaller needles to create a tightly knitted look or to achieve those complex patterns, and bigger needles are suitable for looser, more open stitches. You’ll find a range of knitting needles in our collection. 

Browse our collection of 2 ply yarns and you’ll find all your favourite brands. We stock everything from Debbie Bliss, Sublime and Patons to Artesano, Juniper Moon Farm and Regia. There are plenty of gorgeous shades to choose from, so there’s something to suit every project in our selection. We also have 2 ply wool available.
