Hi,
I have seen some cotton yarn for sale and I`m not sure what it means when it says 3/2 5/2 10/2 etc. is that the weight of it? cotton ,and also is cotton flake called that because it has little nubs on it??(haha)
thanks,
judy

Cotton flake has a thick and thin texture - the "nubs" tend to be bumps of unspun soft cotton, and there are also usually parts of the yarn that are thinner and more tightly spun, thus producing the texture.

For an extensive and informative page all about yarn counts and thicknesses, visit http://www.yarns-and.com/yarnto.htm. The whole page is great, and the bottom, in particular, discusses cotton counts.
