Pure Qiviut: 100% Pure Qiviut Yarn

You deserve to treat yourself to a special accessory to enjoy for years. A cloud-like softness unlike any other yarn in your yarn stash. 

Qiviut comes from the fine undercoat of the Muskox. A natural fiber that is one of the warmest and most luxurious fibers in the world.

Unique characteristics of Qiviut include: 

  • 8 times warmer than wool
  • Finer than Cashmere: Some even say it makes cashmere feel rough in comparison
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Hollow Fibers: That's why it's sooo light!
  • Lacks Lanolin/ Scales: This means no itchy, scratchy irritation on your skin when you wear it
  • Water repellent
  • 11-14 microns

  • Qiviut is not just wonderful to wear, it is a dream to work with during the entire knitting process. 

    “If you love to knit, this is one of the most special investments you can make in yarn or a project. Very much worth the splurge!”

    Warm and Soft

    I knit a pair of gloves with the "qiviut and mulberry silk" blend several years ago. It felt like knitting with toothpicks, because I'm used to heavier yarns. I LOVE the gloves. Even though they are fine, they keep my hands warm even when it's windy. And they feel like a cloud.

    Sooo warm…

    This yarn is so much fun to knit! I can’t feel the warmth coming off of it while I’m knitting. I’ve made 3 hats and mittlits. Just love it!!!

    A True Blessing

    My sweet husband bought me two balls of the pure Qiviut for Christmas. I am thrilled to be working with this luxurious yarn. The texture is soft, the color wonderful and i am certain the finished product, a beaded cowl, will be spectacular. Thank you to Windy Valley and, of course, the muskox!!!

    Muskox shed their under-wool fiber naturally each spring, which is then hand-collected from either the tundra, bushes, or branches. We work with locals in Northern communities to gather the fiber.

    We get this precious Muskox resource with a clear commitment to social and environmental responsibility.

    Also, it is important to mention that we purchase the yarns directly from the source, like Vicuna from Peru, Guanaco from Argentina, Qiviut from the Arctic
