Ok, so we all know how yarn has different weights and what that means. For instance, worsted-weight is usually labeled a "4" on the package of yarn and usually requires sizes 6-7-8 needles, or thereabouts.
The Elmore-Pisgah webstore sells A LOT more than just Peaches N' Cream yarn. Some of the stuff is to DIE for! Seriously, check out the rayon chenille. DROOL. Anyway, they also sell some other types of cotton yarn, which I think is primarily used in crochet. But the weights are listed differently. So my question is what is a size 5 cotton (or size 10)? I think they get thinner as the numbers get higher. At least it looks that way. But they have a kit where you can knit a back scrubber and a washcloth using this "size 5" cotton (I WANT IT) ! But I just don't know what the deal is with that weight number. Anyone know what this means?
