What does 4/8 mean? These numbers tell you the weight , yardage, and number of strands in the yarn.
– the bottom number (8) tells the industry standard size of the warp (an 8 single has 6720 yards per pound) (a 1/1 yarn has 840 yards per pound). The larger the top number the finer the single strand yarn.
-the top number tells how many strands are put together to make the warp – so this warp is a size 8 plied with 4 strands (the 4 plys cuts the yardage to 1680 yards per pound). The larger the bottom number the more strands in the yarn.
