Lace weight yarn is a very lightweight and delicate type of yarn that is often used for making lacy or airy shawls, scarves, and other lightweight knit or crocheted items. The term “lace weight” refers to the weight of the yarn, which is the thinnest of all the different types of yarn, and it’s usually worked up on small needles or hooks to create a delicate and open fabric with a lot of drape. Because of its lightweight nature, lace weight yarn is ideal for creating lightweight summer garments and accessories that provide warmth without being heavy or bulky. Additionally, lace weight yarn can be used to add delicate embellishments to heavier weight knits, such as adding a crocheted lace edging to a shawl or sweater.
