What ply is best for amigurumi?
I usually use 8 ply as it’s best for the size dolls I want. Heavier wool with a higher ply number turns out a bit bigger than I want, with larger gaps between each stitch – you really want nice tight stitches with amigurumi so the stuffing can’t be seen through the fabric.
