plys of cashmere

The twisting process to form the strand is very similar to braiding hair. 2-ply yarn consists of two strands twisted in opposite directions "Z and S" and then twisted together to create strength.

The use of 2-ply yarn means that you want to offer a quality product.

A sweater created with a single garment only has movement in one direction or "Z" or "S", so unless it is exquisitely designed, it will lead to garment deformation.

GAUGE: the number of needles used per inch.

The lower the "gauge", the more loosely knit the sweater.

The higher the "gauge", the more tightly knit the sweater is.
