Lotus Yarns Tibetan Cloud Fingering

Tibetan Cloud Fingering from Lotus Yarns is 100% yak down, spun into a light, smooth yarn with a hint of halo. Yak fibers are less elastic than wool, but since it's so light, Tibetan Cloud Fingering will hold its shape well. These glowing, saturated heather-tones are simply amazing, and will look fantastic in airy shawls and lace projects. Made in China.

      It's keeps breaking!

      By Pat

      from Stites, Idaho

      Pros

      • Beautiful Color And Hand

      Cons

      • Breaks easily
      • Lace Weight Not Fingering

      Best Uses

        Comments about Lotus Yarns Tibetan Cloud Fingering:

        Twice I've tried projects with this yarn and even though I've been gentle with it, it's broken twice. Just too fragile and wouldn't want a ton of splices in my beautiful lace project. Don't know what I'll use if for now. . .

        • Lace shawls

        Comments about Lotus Yarns Tibetan Cloud Fingering:

        If you're looking for a nice lace weight yarn in lovely heathered colors, this could be it. But to call it fingering weight is a real stretch.

            I've never worked with Yak yarn before, this is going to be one of those huge Shipwreck shawls, I think.

            The Granite colorway is stunning - a dark gray with undertones of dark brick red and deep blue, which you can only see very close up.

            Comments about Lotus Yarns Tibetan Cloud Fingering:

            This is a very attractive yarn (thread?) but much too fine a gauge for what I was intending - the description says fingering, it's more like gossamer laceweight. I'm trying the intended project (colorwork) with gauge adjustment, but the tiny needle size needed for even stitches is not what I had in mind. I'll probably end up using the yarn for lace projects instead.

                  I had a terrible time just winding it into a ball. It broke constantly under normal winding conditions. Once I started to knit a swatch, it behaved better, and knitted up with a lovely look and feel. I would not buy it again, though.

                        I used two strands of milk tea and one each of natural and October to knit a scarf. It came out looking very tweedy and unusual. It's as easy to work with as four strands can be -- I haven't tried it on small needles (I used #8) with one or two strands. The finished product has a nice hand and is smooth. I don't know how to explain this except to say that the yarn smells "warm". I guess a little like warm tea but not quite like it.

                        Easy to work with. I do not usually buy fingerling weight products, but combined with other yarns, it is easy and pleasant to use. If you do thread crochet, you'll like this item. Great range of colors.
