The qiviut lace scarf knit in a wave pattern is made of the same 50% qiviut: 50% silk 2-ply blend yarn that is created by Nunavut Qiviut. The combination of qiviut and silk combines the warmth and softness of qiviut and the drape and strength of silk. Qiviut is very warm, and blending it with silk makes is wearable in temperate climates below the Arctic Circle where most people live. We do not dye the silk in the blend which creates a metallic sheen in the fabric.
Each scarf is individually knit by hand on a hand-powered knitting machine. The weight of the scarf is about 2.8 oz and is 8 inches wide and 60 inches long.
