3 Ply Yarn

3 ply yarn is one of the most enjoyable weights to knit with as it’s fine and lightweight. It’s also known as fingering yarn because it’s so easy to use. This weight is immensely popular for crafting socks, delicate gloves and baby garments. Whether you’re making a gift for someone or embarking on a personal project, 3 ply yarn provides lots of possibilities. 

Typically a thinner needle is recommended for finer yarns. We usually suggest 2-3.5mm needles for projects using smaller patterns, but larger needles can be used to achieve open knit effects. Always remember to check the suggestions for your particular project. 

We only use quality yarn fibres at Laughing Hens and we offer various combinations including alpaca, merino and nylon. Browse our collection and pick a colour to fit your tastes.
