Imagine on the most extreme cold weather day, being able to keep your hands warm with the warmest natural fibre on the planet!
Nunavut Qiviut now makes qiviut mitts, qiviut gloves, and qiviut fingerless gloves! They feature ounces of qiviut in each pair, a double ribbed cuff, and the mittens are knit oversized and then shrunk so that they make a thicker felt knit. This makes them substantial, soft, durable, and very warm.
Each pair is made from a custom made, Nunavut Qiviut yarn blend of 50% qiviut, 35% superfine merino, and 15% nylon. They come in medium and large sizes.
For more extreme cold applications, go with the qiviut mitts or qiviut gloves. The qiviut mitts are a bit warmer. If you just can't be without your cell phone, try the fingerless gloves. Each of these styles can be made to be super warm, just by covering them with a windproof outer mitten. Then you mimic the coat of a muskox, where the thicker guard hair blocks the wind and the qiviut provides the insulation. All these were worn in typical arctic winter applications from January to March, 2022, and performed excellently.
The style and size of the qiviut hand-wear affects the amount of qiviut material in style and design. The cost of the qiviut material influence in the prices between sizes and styles. For example, the large size uses more material than the medium, and gloves require more material to knit than mitts.
