What to look for on a ball band of your yarn skein

Before you head to the Yarn Store .....

I wanted to take a moment to share simple but useful information before you grab that new skein. As it doesn't always have to be the acrylic or wool.

The ball bands on a skein of yarn gives information to knitters so they know what needle to use with a project. Once understanding the ball band and the conversion will open many skeins and your imagination.
