When it comes to crochet thread, how does the size work? The larger the number, the thicker the yarn? Or the larger the number, the smaller the yarn?

I think I'm right in saying the larger the number the thinner the yarn. I've just looked at my 'Coats craft 20' and my 'Coats craft 40'. and the 20 in definably thinker.

Whatcha making then?

Thanks! I had a ball of black and had no clue what it was. I think it is a 10 now because it is thicker than my 20.
