Our Yarn Blends

At our Nisku, Alberta mill, our small team produces yarn with three fibre compositions:

    • 100% Qiviut Yarn: 2-ply, 437 yards, 58 grams
    • Niviuk Yarn (60% Qiviut, 30% Cashmere, 10% Silk): 2-ply, 437 yards, 58 grams
    • Qiviut Sock Yarn (40% Qiviut, 35% Superwash Merino, 15% Silk, 10% Nylon): 3-ply, 375 yards, 100 grams

Note on our yarn blends and their suitability:

  • 100% Qiviut: Our most popular and precious yarn, the 100% qiviut is soft, warm, and very difficult to felt accidentally. Somewhat like alpaca, these fine fibres may relax over time, leading to small changes in the shape of the knitwear. 

For knitwear with greater 'memory,' try a blend that contains silk, cashmere, or wool, such as:

  • Niviuk Yarn (60% Qiviut, 30% Cashmere, 10% Silk): a luxurious blend of precious fibres, suitable for any project
  • Qiviut Fingram Sock Yarn (40% Qiviut, 35% SW Merino Wool, 15% Silk, 10% Nylon): our strongest blend offers the warmth and comfort of qiviut, merino wool, and silk along with the nylon that will keep your socks going over time
