Nuna Heat Hand Warmers

Got cold hands or feet? Get some Nuna Heat!

Nuna Heat is 100% qiviut fibre, which is the luxurious undercoat of the muskox. The Inuit people who have lived along side the muskox for thousands of years still collect this precious natural fibre. They use it to line their mitts and shoes, helping them to survive in the coldest climates in the world!

Nuna is the traditional Inuit word for earth or land.

Simply pull apart the fibre into two equal portions, place in each mitt or boot and feel the warmth! The more packs Nuna Heat you use the warmer you are!

REUSABLE! Just hand wash in cool water and lay flat to dry.

Purchasing

All our Qiviut yarn, Qiviut yarn blends and knitwear are made with pure muskox fibre and are available for custom orders.

Our yarn is hand dyed and the colour will vary with each lot number and blend.

If an item is not in stock, we will be happy to start a custom order. Custom orders can take up to 8 weeks to complete.

To place a custom order, or for wholesale orders, please email qiviutinc@gmail.com.

We will do our best to get back to you within 48 hours.

Every skein blend and colour offered is beautiful beyond the well presented photos. 100% warm, soft and evenly spun with heart and soul.

The Nuna heat is the best purchase I have made. If you have cold hands in the winter, this is the best solution! Just stuff it in your mitts and your hands will be toasty warm for ages! I use it every where I go in the winter and I highly recommend it!

Edmonton got to -19°c while I was there. I was excited to have this to keep me warm. Not only that but it is so beautiful! I love the Arctic Lakes colour!
