This hand knit hat/beanie is made from 100% qiviut ("cashmere of the north"). The hat band shows an unusual and attractive cable pattern and the crown is knit in seed stitch.
Both stitch types ensure that the hat feels thick and cosy and makes it ideal for very cold temperatures. Ideal for the gentleman who appreciates highest quality in material and finish!
Qiviut is the Eskimo word for the extremely fine underwool or down of the musk ox. These animals are very rare – hence the rather high price of this luxurious, rare and unique yarn. Qiviut is praised as being eight times warmer than wool by weight and softer and finer than cashmere. A garment knit of qiviut is so wonderfully soft, warm and lightweight that one is barely conscious of wearing it.
In this hat, 2 very thin strands of yarn were knitted together. This traps even more air between the fiber and provides good thermal protection.
