Qiviut Add to My Favorites
Indulge yourself with "Qiviut" yarn from Windy Valley Muskox, for the luxurious experience of creating with an exceedingly rare fiber. You'll quickly learn 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), the fiber is 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's noticeably softer & lighter than cashmere, 8 times warmer than wool, hypoallergenic & non-irritating to the skin. 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 it 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.

This yarn is unbelievably soft and warm. It's very fine, and quite expensive, so you'll want to make a lacy pattern that doesn't require more than one or two balls.
