Have you ever seen a yak? I have seen them at the zoo, but never in the wild.
Yaks are found throughout the Himalaya mountain range and thrive in very cold weather. From what I read on the Web, there are a few herds of wild yaks, but most are domesticated animals.
My store on Etsy, The Pen and Hook, formerly Writing Places, is now selling yak yarn. Each purchase of this yarn helps provide income for the women who make it so that they can help their families afford medical care, education and other necessities. The thing I really like is that these women actually work in their own homes They do not work in sweatshops for meager pay, nor is child labor a factor.
Here is what I am selling.
