There is nothing more luxurious than a sweater, hand knit with patience and dedication, in one of the rarest and most sought after yarns there is: qiviut, the under down of the muskox. It is also called the "cashmere of the North" (this particular qiviut was spun in Canada). It is a quite rare material (I am on a waiting list to receive more stock!), hard to come by and therefore more expensive than any other yarn.

Qiviut is said to be 8 times warmer than wool by weight and even softer than cashmere itself. If only photos allowed you tactile experience you would want to wrap yourself in this incredibly soft material! The sweater only weighs 350grams (=less than 1 pound).

The classic knit pattern gives the sweater in submariner style softness without comparison. While knitting, the qiviut seems to "bloom" into soft and squishy stitches. Ribs at both sides give a bit of elasticity and adaptability to most sizes. The sweater is finished with a round neck.

If you prefer a different design or style, please email me, I am happy to accommodate your personal vision.

Material:
100% undyed qiviut (muskox under down).
Qiviut is 8 times warmer than wool by weight, feather light and incredibly soft. It wicks moisture away, is breathable and hypo-allergenic. Qiviut does not felt or shrink. It is durable and can be worn for many years to come.
NOTE: On the downside, it does not maintain elasticity and due to its fine structure, it has a tendency to pill. Please, carefully cut pills away with sharp scissors.

Measurements shown in photo:

I WOULD BE PLEASED TO KNIT THIS SWEATER TO YOUR EXACT MEASUREMENTS.

It couldn't have been better, especially if the distances were taken into account.

The article was in line with my idea and I can therefore recommend MountainMasche in Vancouver/B.C.

The Qiviut Headband is AMAZZZZING!! It is SO soft, SOOoo well made! Her skill and artistry is one of the BEST! The packaging is wonderful and the sachet for storage is a wonderful addition. HIGHLY RECOMMEND Mountain Masche. I'll post a photo as soon as I can as I am "gifting" this beautiful headband. Barbara was a delight to work with and communicated quickly and as needed. She shipped the headband as quickly as possible to help me meet my difficult delivery needs. THANK YOU so much!

These beautiful mittens were carefully wrapped, a polite warning to peel the tape off and avoid accidentally cutting into them blindly… a wonderful sachet tucked into the sealed package. The mittens themselves are so soft, lightweight, knit with even tension and will become a valuable part of my Alaskan winter wear. Thank you so very much! I love them!!!
