For the luxurious experience of creating with an exceedingly rare fiber, indulge yourself with "Qiviut" from Windy Valley Muskox. We promise you'll quickly learn for yourself why the label says "as soft as a cloud"! Named using the Eskimo word for undercoat or down of the ancient muskox, "Qiviut" (kiv-ee-ute) or "qiviuk" (the Canadian spelling) is noticeably softer & lighter than cashmere, 8 times warmer than wool, hypoallergenic & non-irritating to the skin.
Combed from the muskoxen's naturally shedding undercoats each spring, "Qiviut" is highly prized for its luxurious feel that will last for years because of its amazing features: it gets even softer when washed, doesn't shed, will not shrink no matter what the water temperature, and retains warmth even when wet yet provides cool, breathable comfort in warmer weather. You'll marvel at "Qiviut" from the moment you first touch it & enjoy knitting your next scarf, hat, top, shawl or poncho project from such an extraordinary fiber. Spun from 100% qiviut for the discerning yarn connoisseur.
