Fingering weight yarn is a lovely lightweight yarn perfect for a variety of knitting, crochet, and weaving projects. Fingering weight is also referred to as sock weight yarn, superfine yarn, size 01 yarn, 4-ply yarn (UK/AUS), and baby yarn. Fingering weight yarn is the second most commonly used yarn in knitting.  Fingering weight yarn is particularly favored for socks and shawls as well as lighter weight spring and summer sweaters.

We love to indulge in luxury with our fingering weight bases, where you can enjoy working with cashmere and other specialty fibers a little longer than with a heavier weight yarn. You will often find unique fibers and blends with these lighter weight bases including merino, yak, mulberry silk, cashmere, super kid mohair, baby alpaca, royal alpaca, Tencel, cotton, flax, and even viscose. Many fingering weight yarns are blended with nylon to enhance the strength and longevity of the yarn being used in high abrasion settings such as socks and gloves.

Fingering weight yarn construction can run the gamut, but there are some clear favorite qualities. You will find a skein of fingering weight yarn to weigh about 100 grams and measure between 350-450 yards. It is increasingly popular to find fingering weight yarn available in mini-skeins weighing only 10g or 20g in weight. These micro and mini-skeins are a dyer favorite for holidays, advents, and shawl kits. This weight can vary in construction from single-ply, to chainette, to a typical four-ply. We have so many unique fingering weight options at Knomad, we can’t wait to see which you choose!
