This little shop is run by a cooperative of artists from various Inuit tribes that spin and weave wonderfully soft hats, scarves and such out of the undercoat obtained from Musk Ox. It is fabulously soft and equally fabulously expensive (and rightfully so). They were...More

What I read about the coop made me believe it was more than it was. It was 1 room and a very small selection of their work. Nothing to write home about as an attraction, but a worthy endeavor.

We walked over to this company after i noticed it while on a city tour. It is a co-op with talented artists who knit, crochet and produce marketable products using the hair from the Musk Ox,

Musk Ox yarn is as soft as cashmere, but is more durable and can be washed repeatedly without pilling. It doesn't take dye well, so it only comes in natural colors. You'll never feel anything softer against your skin!

Very interesting place to visit, friendly & helpful staff that provided lots of information about the items being produced. Will not take long to check it out & it's close to other places of interest.

After all those beautiful whales, cute sea otters and majestic eagles, the poor musk ox might seem to take a back seat. After all, cute is not the first word that comes to mind when you get your first look at this ancient animal. But...More
