The availability of qiviut changes frequently. When I was working on Arctic Lace, I was able to obtain yarn for knitting and photos of fiber from only a few manufacturers. As we went to press, the companies listed in the book as sources for qiviut sell it as a raw material or in the form of finished items. Those who offer yarn supply high-quality materials that can be used for this book’s projects with beautiful results. I will update this list as I continue to discover new sources.
Books: Click on the book covers to find out more about Qiviut. Patterns, stories, how to’s, and more. Successful Lace Knitting is the sequel to the best seller Arctic Lace.
Blog: Be sure to check out the travel blog/journal of when we were doing research for the Arctic Lace book. Follow the link here.
