Ashford Yoga yarn is a 2-ply yarn that is 35% lighter in weight than the 100% cotton in an equivalent weight. So knit and weave your fabrics, jackets, pullovers, scarves, shawls and homewares which will have the bulk you want but stay light. It has a nylon filament core covered by a cotton outer wrap.
Due to the slight elasticity of the yarn there will be no more “saggy shed” when weaving on a rigid heddle loom. This is Ne 8/2, but looks and weaves like Ne 5/2. You can use it in warp and weft and in any combination with other yarns.
