WilyG asks: What do you mean by 2×2 Chain-ply?
A: What I mean is actually “cable” ply. For some reason I keep calling it chain plying, which is the same as Navajo plying (plying via a giant crochet chain). Cable-ply is when you take a plied yarn and ply it to another plied yarn. A 2×2 cable-plied yarn would be two two-ply yarns plied together. So, a 4 ply yarn, made of 2 2-plies.
Ted: What is “hosiery twist?”
A: Hosiery twist is a tight plying. In most technical terms, it’s 15.35 tpi (twists per inch)
Feel free to ask any more questions you’ve got!
EDIT: Fixed the bit about cable/chain plying.
That’s all for now!
