Add Diameter to Yarn Labels?

May 8, 2019

I was doing some research on yarn weights/measures and have found a lot more information.  My new theory is to label yarn with length/weight/and add diameter.  Would that work?  Two very similar yarns in length and weight but one was a tighter twist and therefore a smaller diameter.  Measuring the diameter at home would be tricky but my idea of aligning the yarn next to a knitting needle of the same size would be a very close approximation.  I'd like to dream that this would work but I have my doubts.  I know it can't be this simple - there are far too many people much smarter than I.  To make your head spin have a look at

 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yarn_weight   

 

Maybe writing is easier ;)
