The one on the right is Afghan #1 non-Bernat yarn (Avocado green) and the one on the left is Afghan #2 Waverly's Stone Brown. As you can see from the picture, I used the hook shown for both and they came out different sizes, even though the labels for both yarns were very similar in size, weight, skein length, hook size suggestion, and stitches per inch.
The Waverly yarn has a lofty, light texture. I think it adds a tiny bit of "umph" to the way the stitches "stand up"....so it affects the gauge a tiny bit.
Very true, I also thought others might like seeing the differences between the Waverly yarn and another yarn. I am loving the differences! I am getting excited to see the end results and how these motifs will all go together.
Thanks for showing the comparison. I'm using waverly yarn and was wondering what 'other' yarn would look like in some of these clues.
