Announcement   Qiviut Musk Ox Down Responds Well to Fondling!

Musk ox qiviut (kiv-ee-ute), is one of the finest and warmest fibers on earth. The musk ox have adapted their extraordinary undercoat to protect them since prehistoric times. Their down-like under-hair is eight times warmer than wool by weight and finer than cashmere. Each spring the musk ox sheds this two-part coat and it is harvested by separating the down from the long guard hairs. The harshness and remoteness of the Arctic limits the amount of qiviut available. Small amounts are supplied by domesticated herds but limited worldwide supplies make it one of the most sought after and treasured of all natural luxury fibers.

Qiviut has a fine scale pattern that resists felting and pilling. This smooth scale pattern also makes it inherently hypoallergenic. Qiviut fiber is so fine that if you lined up 1,950 of them side by side they would barely cover an inch. Qiviut actually blooms and becomes softer with use, the more you fondle it, the softer it becomes. Qiviut is the ultimate next-to-the-skin luxury fiber. You've got to feel it to believe it!

All MOCO (Musk Ox Company) Qiviut Yarns are in stock and ready to ship! Each skein is hand wound to guarantee no knots so you know you're getting the best quality available. Create an exquisite heirloom, you and your loved ones deserve the finest!
