Yak Fiber!!! aka Quiviut

Yay! Today I got my cloud of yak fiber in the mail from Bijou Basin Ranch which is very near to our ranch.

This fiber is SO SOFT!!! It's like my hands can not comprehend how soft it is. It's crimpy, too. So, I'm hoping to be able to needlefelt with it. It looks like it will work out just fine.

I hope every fiber lover gets a chance to touch yak fiber rovings or clouds. This is amazing!!!

Sounds wonderful. I had no idea there were Yak Ranches in the US. Very interesting.

Ooooh, Quiviut! Haven't seen it in a long time. It is such amazing stuff! I used to live in Alaska and it was fairly easy to find up there. I haven't seen it since I moved back to "the States"
