Treat yourself to this luxurious yarn. Each skein is hand dyed and is approx 28g (1 oz) and 200 yards in Lace weight. The natural skein is undyed of course. The saturated colors lend themselves to many projects and the end result is a gorgeous garment with history and vibrancy!
We are so happy to pair up with the people behind Nunavut Qiviut to offer you this luxurious Muskox Yarn and Fiber Clouds. Nunavut Qiviut is the apex of luxury fibers.
Qiviut is the fine undercoat fur (down) of the Muskox. An extraordinarily majestic beast which roams free in Canada. This is extremely rare, hand harvested fiber that is 8 times warmer than Cashmere. This pure Qiviut will NOT shrink and is easily maintained. It's natural color is a brown-grey. Qiviut is a feather-light, hypoallergenic, and petroleum free fiber.
Nunavut Qiviut is located in Kugluktuk, Nunavut, Canada. Just north of the Arctic Circle, perched on the arctic ocean in the heart of Muskox country. Their mission is to develop sustainable, imaginative, and beneficial fiber products from their arctic environment. Nunavut Qiviut supports the traditional Inuit lifestyle of their Arctic community.
Softest I have found
I bought this handspun yarn because it was on sale and I was curious. It is delightfully soft and is knitting up well in the Carla Pearl Scarf 2 on US5’s (the halo is already showing). Being a 2-ply lace weight handspun, it is thick/thin (or thin/thinner - it is very fine) but it is not noticeable in the pattern. I am enjoying it very much.
