THIS ITEM IS MADE TO ORDER - PLEASE ALLOW APPROXIMATELY 3-4 WEEKS FOR HAND KNITTING. THANK YOU!
Soft, lightweight and incredibly warm, this infinity scarf is a one of a kind piece, combining delicate lace stitches and small cables.
Its most outstanding feature is the yarn called qiviut which in Eskimo language denominates the underdown of the Muskox. They are rare and elusive animals, hence the limited availability of this yarn and the rather elevated price. It is a silky grey-brown fiber which is said to be eight times warmer than wool by weight and softer and finer and lighter than cashmere. The fibre is almost free of grease or animal oils and therefore non-irritating and not itchy. It can be worn directly against skin.
Infinity Scarf "Gabriola Island" - Pure Qiviut
100% qiviut (muskox under down). The warm dark brown-greyish colour is all natural and undyed.
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.
