I'm trying to buy some undyed yarn and it says:
Superwash, 3-ply yarn blooms slightly into nice, round yarn. 1,900 ypp.
Sold in:
8oz skein
1 lb skein
1 lb - 1 lb 2 oz cone
1 lb 2oz - 1 lb 4 oz cone
1 lb 4oz - 1 lb 6 oz cone

So what is YPP??

Found the following on this (http://www.prairiewool.com/faq.html) site:

Number of yards per pound. To figure this out measure the number of yards in a skein of yarn, then weigh it. If weighing in grams calculate the number of ypp like so: # of yards weight in grams x 454 (because there are 454 grams in a pound).

that's a toss up... I live in the Wash DC area and the acronyms that get thrown around make you think everyone speaks a foreign language! there's the military, the feds, the locals, geek-speak galore.....
