Qiviut yarn is the warmest wool we carry, it is awesome for thin garments where you want the warmest fiber possible. Yes, Qiviuk yarn is a little expensive but one ball of Qiviuk yarn will create an entire scarf, capelet or other knitting project where lace yarn is required.

Background Information

Qiviuk is sometimes also known as Qiviut, Qiviuk is actually a name that Jacques Cartier uses just to clarify and yes it is the same wonderfully magical beast. Jacques Cartier Qiviuk Yarn is truly a luxury fiber and ultra soft yarn. Qiviuk yarn and Qiviut, fiber in general, has been sought after for centuries for it's softness and magical warmth. These shaggy behemoths walked across the Bering Land Bridge during the last Ice Age and managed to survive an era that most animals did not. The muskox now live exclusively in the Canadian Arctic, Alaska and Greenland. The global population is estimated at about 180,000. Qiviut is valued because unlike sheep's wool, it will not shrink in water at any temperature. Qiviut is stronger and eight times warmer than sheep's wool! It's also softer than cashmere! Qiviut retains warmth even when wet but is breathable during warmer weather. One skein of Qiviut is enough for a gorgeous lace scarf or cowl.

Simply the best yarn

Very pricey, but worth the expense for those special items. I tend to have sensitive skin, especially my neck and face. This is the only yarn I can wear that will absolutely NOT cause a problem.
