You do not have to be a member of IYAK or even own yaks to participate!!

Now is the time to take your yak fiber and/or yarn and fashion it into something exquisite to enter in our competition in any (or all!!) of the following categories:

hand knitting, machine knitting, crochet, weaving, felting, braiding or any other type of hand work as well as hand spinning

Awards will be given for 1st through 6th place.

This show is encouraging the use of yak fiber and as such, blends must contain a minimum of 50% Yak fiber. Fiber or yarn can be from your farm, commercially produced or purchased from an area farm or other source. All classes are open to naturally colored or dyed yarn/ fiber.

Hint: Contact a Yak breeder on our website (under Find A Breeder link) to get some of this yummy fiber and yarn.

All members’ contact info is on the website.
