Musk Ox Qiviut Toque with Polar Bear Pattern

Regular price $175.00

Fit & Design

The fine undercoat of the muskox is called qiviut (kiv-ee-ute) in the native Inuit language. An amazing natural fiber that provides warmth and comfort. Collected from the underwool fibers of the belly of the Arctic Muskox, it's a rare and sought-after material. A light and insulating fiber, it's warmer than wool and softer than cashmere! It's non-irritating and very strong - with care, a Qiviut item will provide warmth and joy to the wearer for 20+ years or more.
