Where to find Nunavut Qiviut Yarn and Knitwear
Nunavut Qiviut has developed a growing and loyal network of Arctic-based yarn stores and art galleries who sell qiviut yarn and knit goods made from Muskox, Arctic Fox and Arctic Hare fibre. Our partners are shop owners across the Arctic North American continent from Nunavik (northern Quebec), Nunavut, Northwest Territories, Yukon Territory, and Alaska. These partnerships broaden the economic benefit of Nunavut Qiviut to Arctic people. Nunavut Qiviut knit accessories are in high demand and are sold as soon as produced and usually to our retail partners.
We are experiencing interest from art galleries, boutique gift shops and designers in southern Canada, USA, and Europe, who retail distinct Arctic luxuries. Nunavut Qiviut thanks the Nunavut Development Corporation for assisting with these connections.
Nunavut Qiviut also receives enquiries from potential retail partners, and from other design, fashion, and art sectors. Please feel free to make these enquiries here as well.
Direct Purchases from Nunavut Qiviut
If you are not geographically close to our retail partners, or your order is larger than what your preferred store carries, please feel welcome to order directly on the web-site.
Please note that we ship from Kugluktuk, Nunavut which is in the Arctic of Canada. There is only airplane access to and from our town. If we experience inclement weather like fog or blizzards, the plane can't land to pick up the mail. As a result mail delivery can take a few days to a week longer than from cities in southern Canada or the lower 48 of the USA.
Nunavut Qiviut Yarn Inventory
Spinning of Nunavut Qiviut yarn is usually finished in March of the year and inventory can get low by summer. Sometimes certain yarn sells out very fast. Our yarn is spun and dyed in small batches. Colour can vary slightly from batch to batch. So make sure you acquire enough yarn for your project to assure colour match.
