Diamond Yarn

DIAMOND YARN
A compound yarn composed of a thick centre thread and two finer ones. The thick thread, about 4's, is soft-twisted with, say, a 2/36's with 8 turns per inch; this doubled thread is then twisted with another 2/36's, but about 4 turns per inch and reverse twist. The fine threads are usually different in colour from the thick one. Varying qualities are made by altering the counts and turns per inch
