Handspun Qiviut

3.6oz (102g) of handspun qiviut*.

*The super soft wool lying beneath the long coat of the muskox.

The fibre was a gift from a very dear friend.

I picked, carded, spun and plied it myself.

And I plan to knit it into a wonderfully soft and warm toque (watchcap) for my husband.

It's so pretty it hurts. I know how soft Qiviut is and ache to touch that beautiful yarn! Your husband is a lucky, lucky man.
