Yarn count:  Yarn count indicates the fineness of yarn. It varies according to weight with length of the yarn.

G.S.M (gm/m2): For knitting it is the main parameter. It is controlled by loop length. If loop length increases GSM will decrease and vice versa. It is measured by GSM cutter & electric balance. It may also be calculated as below.
