Lotus Yarns Tibetan Cloud Fingering

This product is currently unavailable for purchase.

Add to Wishlist

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.

Lace Yak

By 

from Geelong Australia

Pros

  • Luxurious
  • Soft

Cons

  • fine

Best Uses

  • Lace projects

Comments about false Tibetan Cloud Fingering:

I was attracted by the idea of a 100% Yak fibre yarn, and I wasn't disappointed. I had none of the issues winding this into balls that others have mentioned, (I'm winding my fourth ball now) but I do wind carefully by hand. I love the way this feels, it is definitely a luxury yarn. If you want something quirky and a bit different for your lace projects, then this is the thing. The yak fibre does not have the same spring or strength as wool or a wool/silk blend, so I advise that you choose projects that do NOT need to be blocked really aggressively. Having said that, I actually haven't had any issues blocking this in lace shawls. Like the others, I would say this is much more a lace weight than a fingering weight, and a fine lace weight at that. It has a similar thickness to Misti Alpaca hand paint lace. I love this yarn, but I would suggest it is probably not a beginners yarn.

It's keeps breaking!

By 

from Stites, Idaho

Pros

  • Beautiful Color And Hand

Cons

  • Breaks easily
  • Lace Weight Not Fingering

Best Uses

    Comments about false 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. . .

    • Not Fingering

    Best Uses

    • Lace shawls

    Comments about false 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 false 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.

        Comments about false Tibetan Cloud Fingering:

        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.

        Comments about false Tibetan Cloud Fingering:

        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.
