What is "Cotton Count" - Definition & Explanation

The yarn numbering system based on length and weight originally used for cotton yarns and now employed for most staple yarns spun on the cotton, or short-staple, system. It is based on a unit length of 840 yards, and the count of the yarn is equal to the the number of 840-yard skeins required to weight 1 pound. Under this system, the higher the number, the finer the yarn.
