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!”

    Very Pleased w/ the Musk Ox Yarn

    The musk ox yarn is very soft and appealing. The vibrant colors are so beautiful. It'll make you want to come back for more. The musk ox yarn is highly prized in Alaska...they're more warmer than your wool!

    100% Pure Qiviut is Absolutely Lovely!

    I am knitting a scarf for a very special grandmother, and I wanted to use the most luxurious yarn I could think of. I ordered the Pure Qiviut in red, and was delighted with how it knit up. When I washed my swatch, the fabric became so soft and yummy! I was afraid that I would need more yarn for my scarf, and Giovanna responded to my inquiry quickly, making sure that my new yarn came from the same dye batch as I'd previously ordered. The yarn came wrapped with care and is everything I could have asked for. Thank you, Giovanna, for all you've done for me.


    I bought this as a birthday gift for my daughter. It is frivolous and something she could never buy for herself. I just know she will be thrilled with it.

    Wonderful yarn

    I splurged buying musk ox yarn.
    I’m still feeling it and trying to decide what lovely item I’d like to make with it.

    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
