Help! Knitting Newbie

Hi! I’m a fashion student working on producing a fine animal yarn line of clothing.

Could a kind soul please explain what a yarn count of Nm 12/1-16/1 and Nm 20/2-24/2 means?!

Thank you so much in advance!:tulip::tulip:

If you Google it, you might have more luck–I bet it’s a term used in textile production, not in fiber craft. This manufacturer’s website says it relates to length/weight.

Yes, not numbers used so much in knitting and crocheting as in textiles
Here’s another site with explanation of terms:
