35% Qiviut 40% Merino 15% Silk 10% Nylon
Qiviut - also known as Qiviuk - is the supersoft down of the Muskox - softer than cashmere, and many times warmer than wool.
I knit humanely harvested arctic Qiviut, blended into a sockyarn, with my hand operated antique sock knitter.
Qiviut is extremely soft and warm. So why not 100% Qiviut Socks? Simply put, they wouldn't stay up. The Merino contributes elasticity and the nylon enhances durability. Silk adds a lustre and additional durability making for a sturdier sock.
These are a luxury garment and should be worn and cared for as you would Cashmere or other exotic fibre.
Please note that these are a shoe-weight sock. For heavy boot type socks, please see our Heavy Wool Socks.
Hand Wash in cold/tepid water. Dry Flat. No bleach.
