Western Cashmere

Recently, among friends, the subject of yaks came up- I know I know, common theme, but I mentioned that I had seen some in a field near my house. I shook my head and mumbled something about how truly rural I had become. Without blinking my friend Deidra turned to Laurie and said, "Speaking of Yaks, did you get my goat info.?"

According to

1.6 Yak
1.6.1 Introduction to the Yak
Yak hair is regarded by some as being an acceptable alternative to cashmere, although it is not produced in commercial quantities.

Hmmm... who knew?
