How much yarn do I need?
To give you an idea, here's an indication for some standard-size projects:
- Scarf: 3 skeins.
- Shawl/wrap: 4-6 skeins.
- Women's jumper size 40: 8 skeins.
Please note that some patterns, like cables or a long vest, require more yarn than a standard stockinette stitch sweater.
