Yarn is made from spinning little fibers together to make a string or strand of yarn. As a beginner it is easiest to chose a yarn that is thinker. Most beginners like working with a worsted or bulky weight. These two different weights of yarn are shown on the right of the picture. The two weights shown on the left are thread and sock yarn.
When you buy a ball or "skein" (pronounced: skane) have a little picture of a ball of yarn. You can see a number on the tiny picture.

Any of these three weights are great for beginners.
