Ashford Yoga Yarn Ne 8/2

Core Spun Cotton

The Ashford Yoga Yarn Ne 8/2 is 35% lighter in weight than the 100% cotton yarn in an equivalent weight. 

Using this yarn for knitting and weaving will give your fabrics bulk and density but still remain lightweight. It's great to use for jackets, pullovers, scarves, shawls, and a variety of homewares.

Ashford's Yoga yarn has a nylon filament core completely covered by a cotton outer wrap. With this, you can get the best of both worlds: the strength and elasticity of nylons and the natural comfort and beauty of cotton.

It is a 2-ply yarn - each ply is cotton spun over the nylon filament - the nylon filament is not visible and it will dye like 100% cotton. 

It is such a pleasure to weave with this yarn. Due to the slight elasticity of the yarn, there will be no more “saggy shed” when weaving on a rigid heddle loom!

The Yoga yarn 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.

Care Instructions: machine wash warm, tumble dry at a low setting, do not bleach, warm iron
