Indicated needle size and knitting tension are only meant as recommendations and may vary according to specific design and/or individual knitting techniques.
Yarn qualities with the same or nearly same knitting tension can be used for the same patterns.
You may also mix the various yarn qualities as follows:

For example: Two strands Alpaca create the same knitting tension and thickness as one strand Alaska.

  • Two threads from A equals one thread from C
  • Three threads from A equals one thread from D
  • Four threads from A equals one thread from E
