Ashford Yoga Yarn 8/2 Core Spun Cotton
Yoga Yarn is 35% lighter in weight than the 100% cotton in an equivalent weight. Knit and weave your fabrics, jackets, pull-overs, scarves, shawls and homewares which will have the bulk and density you want but at the same time staying light!
Ashford Yoga Yarn is a 2 ply (two threads plied together) yarn - each ply is cotton spun over the nylon filament. Due to the slight elasticity of the yarn there will be no more “saggy shed” when weaving on a rigid heddle loom. Enjoy the best of both worlds with the strength and elasticity of nylons and natural comfort and beauty of cotton!
This is Ne 8/2, but looks and weaves like Ne 5/2. It can be used in warp and weft and in any combination with other yarns.
