100% Qiviut: Truly an amazing fiber, Qiviut is the delicate under-wool of the Arctic Muskox. It is one of the most sought after fibers in the world because of its rarity, softness and warmth. Qiviut is softer than cashmere and is light as a feather. It’s an insulating fiber and is comfortable to wear in any climate. Eight times warmer than sheep wool, pure qiviut is non-shrinkable, non-felting and is usually safe for people who suffer from sheep wool allergies and unlike wool, qiviut is not scratchy. The more you handle and wash qiviut the softer it feels.  These hand painted and hand dyed qiviut yarns will last for generations.
