Ashford Yoga Yarn

ASH-YY

Typically Ships In:
3 - 4 Weeks

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!  Ashford's Yoga yarn has a nylon filament core completely covered by a cotton outer wrap! Get the best of both worlds: the strength and elasticity of nylon and the natural comfort and 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 8/2 yarn, but looks and weaves like 5/2. You can use for your warp or weft or in any combination with other yarns.  A great choice for rigid heddle weaving.
