Qiviut - Muskox Wool

The muskox is an animal indigenous to the arctic regions. Qiviut, the naturally shed underwool of the muskox, is finer than cashmere, warmer than wool and very rare. Back in the '60's I read an article in the Hudson Bay magazine, the Beaver, describing this amazing fiber. Little did I know that a few years later (1971) I would be living in Alaska! I have been fortunate enough to work with qiviut ever since.
