Qiviut Inc. is 100% Inuvialuit owned and operated in Nisku, Alberta, Canada by Tanis “Akutuq” Simpson originally from Sachs Harbour, Northwest Territories. The mini mill was purchased and shipped from Fairbanks, Alaska, USA to Leduc, Alberta, Canada in the winter of 2019.
We manufacture luxurious 100% Qiviut yarn, Qiviut yarn blends, Nuna Heat Hand Warmers and Qiviut knitwear! Qiviut is truly an amazing fiber. The delicate undercoat of the muskoxen is like no other and the highest quality fiber in the world. It is cherished because of its rarity, softness and exceptional warmth. Qiviut is at least 8x warmer than sheep’s wool and as soft, if not softer than cashmere. It is an amazing insulating fiber and is comfortable to wear in any weather. Pure qiviut when treated properly is non-shrinking, non-felting and non-abrasive. The more you handle and wash qiviut, the softer it feels.
