Imperial Qiviut Blend: Qiviut and Cashmere 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.

Blend of 90% Cashmere - 10% Qiviut.

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!”

    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
