'Niviuk' is a term meaning 'caress'--or more specifically, to give love in the form of squishy hugs, especially to a child. A happy and affectionate word, it speaks to the coziness and delight of this special fibre blend!
This highly luxurious yarn combines the rarity of qiviut (wild NWT muskoxen fibre) with cashmere and silk, for ultimate softness and fabric 'memory.' Like cashmere, qiviut is difficult to felt, and your knitted projects can be gently washed.
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. This yarn is versatile and suitable for most knitting projects; for a yarn with ever greater durability, try our sock blend!
QIVIUT QUALITY GUARANTEE: At Qiviut Inc, our qiviut fibre is 100% sourced from wild NWT muskoxen sustainably harvested for food in Inuit communities. We comb out our fibre by hand to preserve the full staple length, and we make all our products here in Canada!
