Introducing, from Ashford, Yoga Yarn! Yoga Yarn is 35% lighter in weight than the 100% cotton in an equivalent weight. Knit and weave your fabrics, jackets, pull-overs, scarves and shawls, even homewares, which will have the bulk and density you want while still 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.

Yarn specifications:

  • 8/2
  • 2-ply
  • 200 gram cones (7oz)
  • 1386 yards (1260m)
  • 100% Cotton with Nylon Filament
