Yarn Weight

I love this CDV because it shows the wide variety of yarn weights available. (click to embiggen)

The boy's socks are made from what is likely a very fine cotton. That scarf is made from very thick wool, far thicker than worsted. It's variegated too!

Here's a close-up:

This is really neat. You don't get to see socks close up very often.

I can't quite get the image clear enough, but it looks like the scarf could be a crocheted puff-type stitch.

That looks like some pretty thick yarn in the fringe of the scarf.

It's crazy thick! I've seen some shawls with similarly thick fringe. It almost looks like a modern bulky weight.
