Live With Sara - What is Worsted Weight Yarn (4)? | Posh Pooch Designs

Live With Sara 
Today's Question is:
What is Worsted Weight Yarn (4)?
The Term refers to yarn that is medium weight according to American yarn standards.
Which is the thickness of the yarn.

It is usually 10 ply.
Ply is the amount of strands of yarn spun
 together. It used to refer to the weight of
 the yarn, but not any longer.
