The Arctic Qiviut venture with qiviut (pronounced "kiv-ee-ute") yarns and custom yarnwear began in 2001. In 2015, they opened the first and only commercial fiber mill in Alaska, specializing in exotic fine fibers and producing the highest quality pure qiviut yarn, qiviut yarn blends and qiviut yarnwear.
Arctic Qiviut was the first in the world to offer yarn made with certified, pure muskox fiber produced in North Pole, Alaska, USA. Qiviut yarnwear is an heirloom that can be treasured for generations. Qiviut yarnwear or yarn is a unique gift for yourself or that special person. Only the best delicate underwool of the Arctic muskox is used to produce Arctic Qiviuts’ yarn.
