Qiviuq
For thousands of years muskox, or umingmak, have survived in the Canadian arctic. They are protected from the harsh winters by a thick undercoat of downy soft hair called qiviuq (ki-vee-uk). Qiviuq is harvested from wild muskox by the Inuvialuit people living in Canada's remote western arctic and processed into rare and luxurious yarns.  Qiviuq or qiviut is offered in all its forms. Look for skeined yarn, exclusive Folknit-designed knitting kits and finished knitwear. Inuit man in the high arctic
