Ashford Yoga Yarn
Yoga yarn 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 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. 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.
