Experience the warmth and softness of qiviut with an iconic Arctic knit gift: the Umingmaq Qiviut Toque by Nunavut Qiviut.
Umingmaq (pronounced: oo-ming-muk) means muskox in the Inuit language. This qiviut hat features the Nunavut Qiviut natural colour of 50/40/10 qiviut/superfine merino/silk in the base colour and midnight colour in the black muskox design. The band of the hat with the muskox motif has two layers to provide extra warmth and comfort.
Nunavut Qiviut always recommends having merino in any qiviut hat design. The merino adds memory to the qiviut to maintain its elasticity and the fit of the hat. The superfine merino complements the softness and warmth of Muskox qiviut.
Nunavut Qiviut designs its own Arctic yarns and knit items locally and sustainably. These yarns are hand blended and gently processed. The yarns are available for sale to fibre artists and are used sometimes by Nunavut Qiviut to create unique and rare knit designs. Each Umingmaq Qiviut Toque is made individually on a hand powered knitting machine.
Consider pairing the Umingmaq Qiviut Toque with a Classic Qiviut Scarf for a complete look. All purchases over $300CDN receive a 15% discount.
