Have any of you used Qiviut yarn? This is the soft undercoat of the Arctic Musk ox. I'm knittig it up now, and I'm not happy with it.
A couple of weeks ago I relented to a nagging urge and purchased a 1 oz. ball of Qiviut yarn at my lys. It wasn't cheap, but I'd heard so many wonderful things about the softness and fineness of the yarn, that I thought it would make a great gift for Mom (Mother's day is coming up!)
After about 8" of a diamond lace pattern, I suddenly realized that the scarf feels just like wool. I have merinos that are softer than this Qiviut! I expected it to be at least as soft and buttery as cashmere, but no!
