This cotton seine twine is a very high quality warp yarn. A long staple length in the cotton fibers, combined with a very high twist makes for a yarn with high strength. It is impossible to break it with your hands.
Yarns come on the following:
- 20/6- Tubes
- 12/6- Tubes
- 12/9- Cones
- 12/12- Cones
- 12/15- Cones
- 12/18- Tubes
The weight of the yarn on the tubes/cones is between 18-19 oz.
For Tapestry work, try the following setts: 20/6 for 12-15 epi, 12/6 for 10 to 12 epi; 12/9 for 8-10 epi; 12/12 for 8 epi; 12/15 for 6-8 epi; and 12/18 for 6 epi. These yarns are numbered like other cotton yarns: The 20/6 is a size 20 yarn with 6 ply, and the others are each a size 12 yarn plied into a 6, 9, 12, 15, or 18 ply yarn: with 12/6 being the smallest and 12/18 the largest, as the sett indicates.
The table below reflects the approximate number of yards on each cone and a suggested sett.
