The Alaskan co-op that has brought exquisite Qiviut items to you as a unique northern gift since 1969. Qiviut, the downy-soft underwool from the Arctic musk ox, is shed naturally during the spring months. Eight times warmer than wool and extraordinarily lightweight, Qiviut is one of the finest natural fibers known to man. The co-op is owned by approx. 250 Native Alaskan women from remote coastal villages of Alaska who knit each item by hand. Each village has a signature pattern derived from traditional aspects of village life and the Eskimo culture.

Qiviut is not scratchy and will not shrink in any temperature of water. It can be hand-washed in any mild detergent and will last for many years.

If you are in Anchorage call or stop by our downtown store to see and feel our quality products.
