Yoga weaving yarn from Ashford, New Zealand, is Ne 8/2, but looks and weaves like Ne 5/2.
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 with the natural comfort and beauty of cotton. Plus it's 35% lighter in weight than the 100% cotton so you can knit and weave your fabrics, jackets, pull-overs, scarves, shawls and homewares and they will have the bulk and density you want but will still be light-weight!
This 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 a pleasure to weave with Yoga. You can use it in warp and weft and in any combination with other yarns. Due to the slight elasticity of the yarn, there will be no more “saggy shed” when weaving on a rigid heddle loom.
82% cotton, 18% nylon core
