Control Card, Yarn Gauge & WPI
Clip it to your shirt, wheel or belt and this handy tool is there when you need it to spot check your yarn as you spin it.
It's a handy tool to figure out the diameter needed for a specific ply and to make sure you are spinning a consistent yarn! Determine the number of wraps per inch that you want your finished yarn to be and multiply this by the number of plies you want. The result is the thickness of each single as indicated by a number on the card. As you spin, lay the yarn periodically against the clear acrylic card and compare to ensure consistency.
Guidelines for various weights of finished yarns, including fingering, sport, DK, worsted and bulky. Includes a Wraps per Inch (over 2 inches) tool, along with guides for the approximate width of each weight of yarn.
This is a handy WPI tool to calculate the approximate weight of your finished yarn, wrap the yarn comfortably (not tightly, but not too loosely) in between the 0 and 2 and divide the total number of wraps by 2. Compare your WPI to the WPI guidelines listed on the spinners control card.
