qiviut?
I was reading about qiviut- has anyone here used it? I'm sure that there is- I was curious to know if it is as wonderful as I've heard. If you used it, what did you make with it?

Maybe if I win the lottery one day I'll buy a small ball of qiviut to try. Until then, well. . . .

Just went on the internet to find out what qiviut was/is.... wow, oh, wow.

I can't even imagine how soft and lucious it must be - to dream - to touch - to use!!!

Thanks for the link, Silver- I have to admit, I'm not sure what I was expecting, but the hat doesn't look like all that, considering how much it probably cost!!

70 bucks an ounce, huh! Sounds illegal!

Well it IS just yarn. It's an insanely soft, lightweight and warm uber-luxury yarn, but in the end, it still just yarn.

But, for the sake of others, if anyone has some and doesn't know what to do with it, I will kindly and generously take it off your hands.

I'm such a nice person!
