Some handy information you can find right on the yarn labels:

-Fiber content: choose your favorite fibers
-Recommended needle size and gauge information: the gauge information is usually given over 4" with the recommended needle size
-Care instructions: will say if the material is machine washable or hand washing is necessary. These instructions can sometimes be expressed in little graphics
-The length of the yarn: usually in yards and meters
-The weight of the yarn: usually in ounces or grams
-Yarn color and dye lot: useful if you need multiple balls for a single project or need to get more of the same color and dye lot later to finish a project
-Yarn brand and yarn name: also useful if you ever need to find more to finish a project or want more of the same yarn to start a new project!
