Product information

Our Muskasch wool is an exclusive and high quality wool blend for those people who love something special. The yarn consists of 50% cashmere wool, the fine wool of the Cashmere goat, and 50% of the very rare Arctic musk ox’s downy undercoat. 

Musk ox wool is scarce. Only about 2-3 kg of the fur can be combed from the coat of an adult ox per year. It is, therefore, a luxury yarn, unbelievably soft and cosy.

The musk ox’s fibres are delivered from Alaska, the cashmere wool comes from Mongolia. The spinning process takes place in Canada. With this high quality yarn, you can knit wonderfully light, soft and warm sweaters, pullovers, shawls, hats and hand warmers with this high-quality yarn.
