THIS SWEATER IS CURRENTLY SOLD OUT BUT CAN BE MADE TO YOUR ORDER AT ANY TIME. PLEASE CALCULATE APPROXIMATELY 6-8 WEEKS FOR HAND KNITTING.
There is nothing more luxurious than a sweater, hand knit with patience and dedication, in one of the rarest and most sought after yarns there is: qiviut, the under down of the muskox. It is also called the "cashmere of the North". It is a quite rare material, hard to come by and therefore more expensive than most other yarn.
Qiviut is said to be 8 times warmer than wool by weight and even softer than cashmere itself. If only photos allowed you tactile experience you would want to wrap yourself in this incredibly soft material! The sweater only weighs less than 500grams (=approximately 1 pound).
The beautiful seed stitch pattern gives the sweater body and softness. The sweater is finished with a turtle neck and a 1/4 zipper.
If you prefer a different design or style, please email me, I am happy to accommodate your personal vision.
Sweater "Pyramid Mountain" - 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.
