Look for the epi(ends per inch) or wpi(wraps per inch) number for the coned yarn you are considering, then divide that number in half. This will be your stitches per inch gauge estimate.

Our 2/14 Alpaca Silk has an epi of 18-20, which means a gauge of 9-10 stitches per inch. ]]>

That’s pretty close though not exact with the rayon content, but that’s a great yardage estimate to work from. You may want to invest in a yarn balance. These are great when your cone has no label! Unfortunately we don’t carry them but you can find them online.
