elcome to Arctic Qiviut, your portal to one of the most sought after fibers in the world. Our venture with qiviut (pronounced "kiv-ee-ute") yarns and custom yarnwear began in 2001.

We are the first in the world to offer yarn made with certified, pure muskox fiber produced in North America.
 

Qiviut is truly an amazing fiber. It is the delicate underwool of the Arctic muskox. It is one of the most sought after fibers in the world because of its rarity, softness and warmth. Qiviut is softer than cashmere and is light as a feather. It’s an insulating fiber and is comfortable to wear in any climate.

Qiviut is eight times warmer than sheep wool. Pure qiviut is non-shrinkable, non-felting and is often safe for people who suffer from sheep wool allergies. Unlike wool, qiviut is not scratchy. The more you handle and wash qiviut, the softer it feels.

Qiviut yarnwear is an heirloom that can be treasured for generations. Qiviut yarnwear or yarn is a unique gift for yourself or that special person. Only the best delicate underwool of the Arctic muskox is used to produce Arctic Qiviuts’ yarn. We offer pure qiviut and qiviut blends. We only use the highest grade, finest quality German angora, cashmere, baby alpaca, silk, superwash merino, and nylon in our blends.

altArctic Qiviut only sells our products wholesale; except for trade shows and special events. To buy retail from a store or an online store that carries our yarns and yarnwear, select from these categories: Places to Buy Arctic Qiviut Yarn or Places to Buy Arctic Qiviut Yarnwear.

If you can't find our products in your area, contact your local retailer and give them our contact information. We would be happy to set them up as a retailer of our yarns or yarnwear.

We are the exclusive producer of Arctic Beauty, a superior qiviut blended yarn consisting of 60%-qiviut 20%-angora 20%-cultivated silk. We start with the highest quality qiviut fiber from the Arctic muskox. It is thoroughly cleaned of guard hairs, carded and then spun into yarn and washed. Arctic Beauty is exquisite to work with when weaving, knitting or crocheting.
