NOTE: The yarn size designations describe a range of yarn
specifications for yarn before knitting, dyeing and finishing of the
fabric. They are intended as specifications to be followed by the mill
in sourcing yarn used to produce fabric. Dyeing, finishing, and knitting can alter the characteristic of the yarn as it appears in the finished fabric. This specification therefore includes yarns appearing in the finished fabric as finer or coarser than the designated yarn sizes provided that the variation occurs after processing of the greige yarn and production of the fabric. The specifications for the yarn apply to the yarn itself prior to cutting, sewing and finishing of a finished garment. Such processing may alter the measurements.
