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 expensive, but one ball of Qiviuk yarn will create an entire scarf, capelet or other knitting project where lace yarn is required.
First, the pictures on the website do not do the colors justice. I took a leap of faith that someone putting out such an expensive fiber would surely not produce it in the terrible colors displayed. I’ve been pleased with every color I’ve tried. Working with Qiviuk has spoiled me! Not just that it is ssoooffftt, but it works up with the right balance between stitch definition and blending into a cohesive fabric. I save my Qiviuk for those special projects—a pair of footies for cold days with a good book (or knitting/crochet project), gloves and cowl to carry for cold conference rooms, and a multipurpose piece that goes on all my travels (shawl, scarf, and shrug).
The yarn is wonderful, the feel is exquisit. There is nothing like it.
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.
I have not used it, but am enjoying the feel of it. Thanks.
