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!
100% Qiviut Yarn
material: wild NWT muskoxen fibre (qiviut)
2-ply, 437 yards and 58 grams per skein (lace weight)
Our most luxurious and best-selling yarn, combed by hand from muskoxen hides and milled right here in Nisku, Alberta. We spin our yarn lace-weight, as befits this most precious fibre. It is ideal for light but exceptionally warm winter accessories, and it is especially suited for lace knitting. Lace-weight yarn can also be held doubled for fingering/sock-weight projects.
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 greater durability and 'memory,' try one of our cashmere or merino wool/silk blends!
