Qiviuk: The Most Precious Fibre in the World
Once a year, the Arctic's frozen tundra transforms into a landscape of luxury as rumbling herds of Muskox begin to show their downy undercoat called Qiviuk (kiv-ee-uk or kiv-ee-ut). A fibre softer than cashmere and warmer than wool. The Qiviuk is collected in a sustainable and socially conscious way, and spun into a luxury yarn.
Qiviuk has combined the most dedicated and experienced craftsmen with advanced technology to carefully reach the finest products possible. Every step is patiently executed without compromising attention to detail.
Qiviuk is the "nature of luxury".
