    Yes. That should yield about 4lbs. of pure quiviut yarn.

    It's the "wool" or under/guard hairs from a muskox. It's the warmest, rarest, most expensive form of wool in the world.

    That's qiviut or qiviuq, no u after the q.

    Awesome hunt and writeup Brett! Made a few trips to Mekooryuk, unfortunately with a tool bag and not a weapon.
