This is a great place to visit where you'll not only learn the the history of the co-operative, but also how it helps supplement the income of the native people who produce goods to sold through the co-op. The story is free! I also enjoyed...More

I had visited the musk ox farm in Palmer and wanted to buy some Qiviut yarn for a friend to knit a hat but the price was higher than I'd expected to pay based on my online research. Oomingmak does not sell yarn (unless you...More

This place is tiny but fascinating. Not only can you actually feel the difference in the musk ox wool, but you can watch the women work on it and purchase items made from this light warm fiber. Really interesting!

In the downtown area. Definitely worth a stop. The people who work here and who produce the work are Alaska Native peoples. Lovely crafts for an authentic gift.

This little shop is run by a cooperative of artists from various Inuit tribes that spin and weave wonderfully soft hats, scarves and such out of the undercoat obtained from Musk Ox. It is fabulously soft and equally fabulously expensive (and rightfully so). They were...More

Small little shop that is run by a cooperative. You can learn as much as you want to know about musk ox wool and how it's gathered, prepared, spun, knitted, and sold. The wool knitted fabrics are extremely rare. They are extremely warm. And they...More

What I read about the coop made me believe it was more than it was. It was 1 room and a very small selection of their work. Nothing to write home about as an attraction, but a worthy endeavor.
