We are hard at work hand-combing, carding, drafting, and spinning! Our luxurious, hand-crafted yarns take 6-8 weeks to produce--and each batch sells out quickly. Thank you for your patience while we work to produce the highest quality luxury yarns!
Fibre composition: 60% qiviut, 25% superwash merino wool, 15% silk
2-ply, 437 yards and 58 grams per skein (lace weight)
'Kunik' is the word for 'kiss' in Inuit languages (Inuvialuktun, Inuinnaqtun, Inuktitut)! This special blend combines the luxury of qiviut (wild NWT muskoxen fibre) with superwash merino and silk to produce an exceptionally warm yarn that, once knitted, can be gently washed and will retain its shape beautifully.
For fingering/sock-weight projects, yarn can be held doubled--or combined with others from your collection. (As most knitters say, it's always worthwhile to double-check your gauge by swatching first!)
Our lace weight yarns produce warm but lightweight garments. Kunik is a versatile yarn ideal for hats, scarves, cowls, and most other projects. For a yarn with ever greater durability, try our Fingram sock blend!
