QIVIUT (Musk Ox) from the Arctic Circle, a respected and valuable resource in the tradition and culture of the Inuit Peoples. The coarse outer coat sheds the ice and snow, and conceals a soft dense wool. Qiviut is the warmest, lightest wool in the world and can be made into incomparably soft garments. TECHNICAL info: a diameter of 12 microns, low lanolin content, and smooth texture that allows it to be warn next to the skin!
