Yarn thickness or Yarn count | Texhour

Count is the numerical expression of coarseness or fineness of the yarn. The thickness of the yarn when 1 pound by weight of fiber is drawn out to make ONE hank 840 yards long is Count 1 or Ne 1. Again, if the yarn is drawn thinner and one pound of fiber results in TEN hanks each 840 yards long, then the yarn count is 10.
