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" (this particular qiviut was spun in Prince Edward Island, Canada). It is a quite rare material, hard to come by and therefore more expensive than any 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!
A beautiful cable pattern gives the sweater elasticity and adaptability to most sizes. The sweater is finished with a rather loose turtle neck.
