Qiviut Fiber, Yarn and Knitted Items

Qiviut Fiber, Yarn and Knitted Items 1The 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.

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.
