7. About a yarn count

People often ask "how many meters the yarn is in length?" When you see the count, you will know.
The yarn count shows how many meters per gram.
For example, the yarn count of H-7970-S (TSUMUGIITO) is 「1/8.5」→ means there are 8.5m per gram.
On the other hand, when you need 100m of H7970-S,
you will know that 100m ÷ 8.5 = 11.764g → meaning 20g is enough, revaluating by a 10g unit.
