Lace weight yarn is the perfect weight for delicate lace shawls and weaving. They can be used with a variety of needle sizes depending on how open you would like your fabric to be. Please note all items knitted or crocheted with lace weight yarn will be very delicate and care must be taken to avoid snagging.

Recommended needle size: 2.0mm - 5.0mm depending on the fabric you require for your project.

  • For a less open fabric: 2.0mm - 2.75mm

  • For lace shawls: 3.0mm - 3.75mm

  • For very open lace shawls: 4.0mm - 5.0mm (creates a very open drapey fabric)
