The wool of the Arctic musk ox (Qiviut in the native Inuit language) is among the most prized wools in the world: Unlike sheep’s wool, it is not affected by water or temperature, yet it still feels cloud soft and is claimed to be eight times warmer than sheep’s wool. A purchase of a hand-knitted scarf or hat at this co-op provides a livelihood for about 250 native Alaskan women, most of whom still live a subsistence lifestyle in remote coastal villages.
