I needle help determining a yarn weight for Vivaldi (http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visgarn_info.php?garn=Vivaldi) yarn.

The yarn description says "needle size 4". Would this mean 4mm, or does it mean US size 4 (which is 3.5mm)? Or, could it even be that they're saying it's a UK size needle, size 4 (US size 10/6mm)?

It gives a gauge of 19 sts x 26 rows = 4"/10cm, so stitchwise, does that put it in the DK category or the sportweight category (or somewhere else)?

Yarndex says it's worsted, and the 19 st/4 inches tells me that makes sense.
