This is a small piece of pure luxury: two of the most elegant and sought after yarns in the fashion world - Qiviut and Silk - are blended together into this extravagant and shiny yarn, and hand knit into a lace scarf.
Qiviut is the Innuit word for the extremely fine underwool or down of the musk ox. They 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. This cowl only weighs 58gr (2oz). The fibre is free of grease or animal oils and therefore non-irritating and not itchy. It can be worn directly against skin.
Lace Scarf "Eden Island" - Qiviut & Silk
50% Qiviut, 50% Silk from Nunavut Qiviut.
Handwash with special wool detergent in luke warm water and lay flat to dry. Qiviut actually becomes softer and warmer the more you handle and wash it. With proper care it will last a long, long time!
