Ashford Yoga Yarn
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!
Yoga yarn is 35% lighter in weight than the 100% cotton in an equivalent weight. Yoga yarn has a nylon filament core completely covered by a cotton outer wrap! Get the best of both worlds: strength and elasticity of nylons and natural comfort and beauty of cotton!
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.
