View Full Version : Does anyone know of a yardage chart for different yarns?

I've got this yarn, Bernat Berella Sportspun, 100% acrylic, 3-ply, that's got no yardage listed on it. It's 2 oz. and I'd really love to find out how many yards are in a skein...

Anyone? I've done alot of looking around already... :shrug:

Though it doesn't say it on the label (it's probably older than that particular designation, LOL), it's a DK weight.

Thanks for any help.

A lot of yarn companies have their own websites. They are always a good place to look for info. http://bestsmileys.com/thumbs/7.gif

Bernat was the first place I went...it's probably long since been discontinued...

In any case, I guess I can extrapolate the figure on the 1.75 oz skein, the ones I have are 2 oz...again showing their age :teehee:

So, if 1.75 oz = 145 yds, 2.0 oz = 165 yds? :??

The gauge given (though on mine it's for an inch...) seems to be the same.

Thanks all

Diane :muah:
