How much yarn do I need?
Not sure how much yarn you'll need for your next project? Our metric conversion and yardage calculators may help.
Metric conversions: yards/meters, pounds/kilos
Weavers steeped in the English system of measure often know how many yards/pounds of thread they need but not how many meters/kilos they must buy!
1. To convert from Meters per Kilo to Yards per Pound, use the following formulas:
Meters per Kilo ÷ 2.2 = Meters per Pound
Meters per Pound × 1.094 = Yards per Pound
For example: If we see that a yarn has 4,000 Meters per Kilo, we would divide 4,000 by 2.2, which = 1818.2 Meters per Pound. If we multiply this result by 1.094, we find that we get 1989 Yards per Pound.
2. To convert from Pounds to Kilos:
Pounds ÷ 2.2 = Kilos
For example: If we figured we need 10 pounds of yarn for our project, dividing this by 2.2 gets us to 4.55 Kilos. Looks like you need 5 Kilos.
