Arctic Qiviut® is the first in the world to offer qiviut yarn made with certified, pure musk ox fiber produced in North Pole, Alaska. These yarns will last for generations. Qiviut is truly an amazing fiber. It is the delicate underwool 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. Qiviut is 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. Unlike wool, qiviut is not scratchy. The more you handle and wash qiviut the softer it feels.
