Yak going awry

Inspired by the Craftsy class about wool (I’ve written about it earlier) I set out on a fleece discovery and ordered yak (in the picture below) baby camel and a nice blend of angora, merino and silk. All of them considered luxurious fiber.

I tried spinning the yak today. Totally unsuccessful!!! The yarn simply falls apart. The fleece is magnificently soft, but not very long. Either I must go with more twist or simply blend with something else.

A bit disappointed I picked up the angora blend instead and the result was immediate.
