3-ply yarn specifications: 

Note on 3-ply Opal yarns: The majority of Opal yarn is 4-ply, but occasionally they issue a 3-ply collection. All our yarns are 4-ply unless indicated in the colour name. 

The 3-ply balls are 75 grams, but have the same wool/polyamide composition and meterage as the 4-ply collections, and you can use the same patterns. 

Note: Opal yarn is a product of Germany.
