4 Ply Yarn

4 ply yarn gives a super soft closer stitch, perfect for stylish scarves and baby garments. This lighter weight yarn, also known as sport weight yarn, is a popular choice for socks when combined with Nylon. Normally 4 ply would work well with a 3.5mm needle but make sure you check the instructions on the pattern or yarn. 

We have an amazing range of yarns and wools, including cashmere, cotton, merino, mohair, alpaca and angora. We are careful to select the finest premium natural fibres from all of your favourite brand names.

What is sport weight yarn or 4 ply yarn? 

Sport weight or 4 ply yarn is superfine, and with an addition of Nylon to the mix, can also be known as sock yarn. However, its softness means it’s also great for gifts for babies, and its intricacy lends it to more complex colour details. 

We have superb selection of wools and yarns of all types here at Laughing Hens. We specialise in supplying everything you need to create using crochet and knitting. Don’t miss out on our choice of sock knitting patterns; you can find everything you need to make them right here, at Laughing Hens.
