Spun Yak Hair

This yak hair was one of the sample packs that came with my spinning wheel when I bought it at a local consignment store. It is SOOOO hairy! :P The yarn is very thick and strong. I'm not sure what I would make with the finished yarn, but it's interesting to learn how to spin it. I made the drop spindle myself with a dowel, toy wooden wheel, and a small cup hook.
