Yoga yarn is 35% lighter in weight than the 100% cotton in an equivalent weight.
So, 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!
Our Yoga yarn has a nylon filament core completely covered by a cotton outer wrap! Get the best of both worlds: the strength & elasticity of nylon and the natural comfort & beauty of cotton!
It is a 2 ply (two threads plied together) 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!
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.
