Yarn is a twisted strand of fiber used in textiles for knitting or weaving purposes. A yarn utilized for knitting, is measured as far as cotton count and thickness. Yarn count helps to find the coarseness or fineness of the yarn used in the textile. In other words, it can be defined as weight per unit length. Use the online yarn count calculator to find the textile measurement of yarn count by providing the number of yarn bundles, length and weight of the yarn.

Formula:

C = (N x L x 453.6) / (Wt x 36 x 840) Where, C = Textile Measurement of Yarn Count N = Number of Yarn in Bundle L = Length Wt = Weight

Example :

Let us consider an example, that the number of yarn in bundles is 20, length of the yarn cloth is 10 yards, weighing 50 lbs. Find the yarn count ?
Applying the values in the formula we get,
c = (20 x 10 x 453.6)/(50 x 36 x 840)
c = 90720 / 1512000
c = 0.06
