Yarn ply information update

In a bid to answer my own question about how to tell the ply of a yarn that is not labelled, I did some more research and found this link which would seem to answer my question.  http://www.knitting-naturally.com/yarn-comparison-chart.html.  I'm just about to print out the information and put in my crochet folder.  I'll be very interested to see what the thin 8 ply yarn comes in at.

Thank you for putting up with my grumbles.

Oh, thanks so much for linking. I am constantly wanting to know the answer to the ply question. I think there is also something about how many times the yarn wraps around the needle/hook.
Have a fab weekend.
