Qiviut Socks

Qiviut SocksQiviut Socks

After learning about Qiviut Socks via a post on SurvivalBlog.com, one of their readers tracked down a source in Canada. So we just ordered two pair and will report back on our findings asap. These are apparently the warmest thing you can wear on your feet short of an actual animal. And it’s pretty cool how Muskox rubs off their down to be hand-collected and hand-spun into yarn.

From Spruce Have Farm:

Qiviut – the supersoft down of the Muskox – softer than cashmere, and 8 times warmer than wool. The muskox seasonally rub off their down on brush, where it is collected by hand and spun into exotic yarns. In this case the qiviut is blended into a sockyarn with fine Merino wool (for memory) and nylon (for strength) and knit by the Soxophone Player. The heels and toes in this pair are reinforced.

Available from Sprice Haven Farm in Canada for $98 with FREE shipping (over $100)
