Say Good bye to cold ears!!!
This hand knit hat is made from 100% qiviut ("cashmere of the north"). The hat band shows elastic ribs and the crown is knit in an overall cable pattern.
Both stitch types ensure that the hat feels thick and cosy and so makes it ideal for very cold temperatures. Ideal for the those who appreciate highest quality in material and finish!
Qiviut is the Inuit 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, one strand of 3ply yarn is used. It gives the finished product an incredible softness, traps the air between the fibers and provides excellent thermal protection.
The hat in the photo is shown in natural, undyed colour. Please check the last photo for other available colours in pure qiviut.
