Nunavut Qiviut fibre is dyed with Greener Shades non-metal dyes. This is a plum colour. Dyed 60% qiviut results in a lighter tone than the colour of 100% qiviut dyed a plum colour. The superfine merino and silk adds elasticity and strength to the softness and warmth of the qiviut which dominates the blend of this yarn.
