What type of yarn is used for finger knitting?

How do you start a finger knitting project?

Slip the end of a ball of yarn between your thumb and index finger, pinching to anchor the yarn as you knit. Then loop the yarn around your pinkie finger and weave it through your fingers. Loop the yarn around your index finger completely, and weave it toward your pinkie. Make a full loop around your four fingers.
