PERFECT PARTNER FOR YOUR RIGID HEDDLE LOOM
Now 35% lighter in weight than the 100% cotton in an equivalent weight.
Now you can Knit and weave your fabrics, jackets, pullovers, scarves, shawls and homewares all of which will have the bulk and density you want but at the same time staying light!
Ashford's Yoga yarn has a nylon filament core completely covered by a cotton outer wrap! Ensuring you get the best of both worlds: the strength and elasticity of nylon and the natural comfort and beauty of cotton!
Yoga Yarn 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 for your warp or weft in any combination with other yarns.
Available in 18 beautiful solid colours: See file below
