A farm, museum and yarn shop in one! The Large Animal Research Station conducts public tours of animal enclosures during the summer months, June through September. These tours allow the visitor a closer view of the muskoxen, caribou and reindeer maintained at LARS for research and education.The gift shop has Qiviut (muskox wool): raw wool for spinning, lace-weight yarn (100% and blends), hand-knit hats, scarves and smoke ring. They will ship orders of qiviut to you. All proceeds from admissions and gift shop sales support continued care of the animal colonies.

Great information about Muskoxen and the properties on Qiviut on their website.
