Qiviut Socks

QIVIUT

Muskox mother and calf

- also known as Qiviuk or Qiviuq - the super soft down of the Muskox - softer than cashmere, and 8 times warmer than wool

In this case Alaskan Qiviut is blended with other fibres into a sock yarn and knit by me - Doug (the Soxophone Player) with my hand operated antique sock knitter.

  • 35% Qiviut 40% Merino 15% Silk 10% Nylon.

Since Qiviut is extremely soft and warm - why not 100% Qiviut Socks? Simply put, they wouldn't stay up. The Merino  gives them some elasticity. And the nylon enhances durability.  Silk adds a luster, and further durability -  making for a sturdier sock.

These are a luxury item and should be worn and cared for as you would Cashmere or other exotic fiber.

Hand Wash in cold/tepid water.  Dry Flat. No bleach.
