100% Handmade in Canada
The coat of the Muskox contains two different types of fiber: the coarse, outer guard, and an inner, fine, soft and downy undercoat. The inner coat allows the animal to survive the extreme colds of the arctic - up to -50*C!
Qiviut garments are handmade from the downy undercoat of the muskox. The primary characteristics of these garments are softness, lightness and exceptional warmth.
Rare & Exotic
The Muskox (Ovibus Moscatus) is an Arctic animal which lives primarily in Canada's high arctic and Greenland. Muskoxen were over hunted in the 1900's, almost to the brink of extinction. The animal has been under Canadian Government protection since 1917.
Because of hunting & protective measures, their numbers have since grown to an estimated population of 85, 000 animals. The harvesting of the animal is still strictly controlled by the government.
