Can't speak for anyone else, but I figured it out from talking to people who knew what they were looking at and asking a lot of questions just like yours. I still do 'cause I still don't know so awfully much.

My theory has always been if you don't know yarn, know your yarn dealer. Yeah, they have an interest in selling yarn, but they have more of an interest in keeping a customer -- if they're smart. But there's also a whole supply chain between the beast and the boutique that can be a resource.

But at the end of the day, what makes a yarn "good" is that it does what you wanted it to do and didn't evoke too much profanity in the process.
