What do you look for when ordering yarn online?
How do you know it will work well with a project and how thick or thin it could be?

What are some of your suggestions when purchasing online?

thanks

Most patterns will either list a weight of yarn to use or will list the yarn used on the original. You should be able to google an actual yarn name and find out its weight. Then I look at web sites to find another yarn that's the same weight and a similar fiber content. Make sure you get the same amount of yardage as the yarn used on the original, though.
