Worsted yarn

Worsted yarn – soft and sleek
In the initial stage of producing worsted yarn, the wool is combed various times which removes the short fibres and forces the longer fibres to lie parallel to each other. In order to produce worsted yarn, the softest possible wool with the longest possible fibres is used to ensure a stretchy, shiny and resilient yarn. These characteristics make worsted yarn pleasant to wear against the skin.
The use of worsted yarn
Worsted yarn is perfect for items requiring a softer feel, such as baby clothes and accessories. Worsted yarn is also a great choice for those that find wool itchy. The sheen characteristic of worsted yarn adds a bit of luxury. You can use worsted yarn to create gorgeous scarves and shawls with a beautiful drape. Due to its sleek texture, worsted yarn is also perfect for knitting machines.
