Isn't it cute? It's a baby skein of qiviuk yarn. What, you ask, is qiviuk? Well, according to the official qiviuk site:
- Qiviuk is the inner down of the Canadian Arctic Muskox. It is a fiber of exceptional quality. Noticeably softer and lighter than cashmere, and 8 times warmer than wool. The Muskox is one of the Arctic most valuable resources.
Here it is sitting next to my PDA.
And one last picture of it all snuggled up next to a big ball of yarn. "Awwww..."
(If you look closely at the pic, you can see a corner of the yet-to-be-revealed project I'm working on.)
