What is WPI?
WPI stands for "wraps per inch" and is one way to measure the thickness of a yarn.
Wrap your yarn around a gauge laying each strand next to each other, so that they don't overlap, for the width of one-inch. Count the strands. The number of strands of yarn required to fill one-inch is the yarn's wraps per inch.
WPI tells you the thickness of the yarn, which is useful for designing yarn when spinning, checking a yarn's thickness when the label has disappeared or didn't include gauge information, or making substituting.
