Qiviut Co-op

On our trip to Alaska, we visited the Oomingmak Musk Ox Co-op in Anchorage. There is a Musk Ox farm in Palmer, AK. This farm provides the Musk Ox hair to create yarn for Native Alaskans to make hand knit items which are sold at the Oomingmak Co-op in Anchorage. You can purchase hand knit items made by Native Alaskans from all over the state, or you can purchase hat kits that include one skein of yarn.

I purchased a couple of hat kits not too long ago to make hubs and me each a hat (above). I just received this cute thank you postcard in the mail! I'm not usually a big spender (hat kits are $80), but I am so glad to have purchased something that supports a good cause, and that's appreciated!
