Tibetan Cloud Worsted
100% Tibetan Yak Down Yarn  Worsted Weight

Here's the worsted weight equivalent to Tibetan Cloud Lace.  It's pure yak down from Tibet, and the mill has discovered how to produce these beautiful colors.  This elegant yarn has a smooth hand like fine cotton, but it's fantastically light weight, so your lacy garment will simply float.  Warmer than wool, with very nice stitch definition and only a hint of a halo.

Super big 100g hanks!  One 100g hank of Tibetan Cloud DK has 330 yards, enough for a matching hat & mitten or glove set, or a simple scarf about 6" by 56".  Two skeins will make a 36" vest, three a long-sleeved sweater.
 
Yak down has no crimp, so there is not much elasticity in this yarn, but it is very low density so it will not stretch from weight.  All in all, it holds its shape pretty well.  Yak down does not contain lanolin, so it's hypoallergenic.

A word on colors:  All the colors are heathers.  They are all very saturated colors, which makes them difficult to photograph well--the photos tend to look too dark, especially over the internet.  Alternative names might be 02 Medium Gray Flannel, 03 Charcoal, 09 Ruby, 11 Navy, 13 Medium Light Olive, 15 Purple. 

There are lots of suitable patterns for this yarn from Ann Norling, Fiber Trends, Fiddlesticks, and our other pattern categories.  Check the navigation menu at left.
