migurumi Yarn Overview

Amigurumi yarn is a specialized yarn perfect for creating small, three-dimensional crocheted or knitted dolls and characters. This yarn offers an excellent balance of quality, durability, and ease of use due to its composition and construction. Below are the details and specifications to help you understand and make the most out of this yarn.

Composition and Characteristics

  • Material: 100% Mercerized Brazilian Virgin Cotton
  • Weight: 125 grams
  • Length: 254 meters (278 yards)
  • Thickness: Medium (492 Tex)

Mercerization is a treatment for cotton that gives the yarn a lustrous appearance and increases its strength and dye absorption, which enhances the vibrancy and durability of the colors.

Yarn Specification

  • Yarn Number (Ne): 6/5
  • Tex: 492

The yarn number (Ne) indicates the yarn's thickness and construction, while Tex measures the weight in grams per 1000 meters of yarn.

Gauge Information

  • Knit Gauge (4 in x 4 in): 24 stitches x 31 rows
  • Crochet Gauge (4 in x 4 in): 19 single crochets (sc) x 24 rows

Gauge is crucial for ensuring your finished project matches the intended size and fit. Always check your gauge before starting a project to make any necessary adjustments.

Recommended Tools

  • Crochet Hook Size: 2.0 mm to 4.0 mm
  • Knitting Needle Size: 2.5 mm to 4.5 mm
  • Tapestry Needle: Size nº16

The recommended tool sizes provide flexibility depending on your project and personal tension. Using the right size ensures your stitches are even and your fabric has the desired texture and drape.

Usage Tips

  1. Gauge Swatch: Always make a gauge swatch before starting your project. This will help you determine if you need to adjust your hook or needle size.
  2. Color Selection: Use the full color chart available for this yarn to plan your projects. The vibrant colors resulting from the mercerization process will make your creations stand out.
  3. Pattern Compatibility: Ideal for detailed amigurumi patterns requiring clear stitch definition due to the yarn's smooth texture.
  4. Care Instructions: Check the yarn label for specific care instructions, but generally, mercerized cotton can be machine washed gently and dried flat to maintain its shape and color.

This high-quality amigurumi yarn is perfect for creating delightful and durable handmade toys and characters, making it a favorite among crafters.
