What is double knitting weight yarn? - Baby Afghan

I found this book with Evelyn Clark’s patterns for Baby Afghans…

It says to use “double knitting weight yarn”, which one is that? Where do I find if one yarn is that type? :thinking:

Thank you!!!

most people just call it DK weight…just a lighter weight yarn

Any brand in particular that I can look for? :??
