Yarntide!

Santa obviously thinks I've been a good girl this year, as he brought me Qiviut! Made from the Alaskan Musk Ox, it is supremely soft and apparently 8 times warmer than sheep wool by weight. Blimey!

And Louisa Harding 'Grace' merino and silk yarn.

Thank you indeed, Santas!!

Gorgeous stuff! Funnily enough, I was only just reading about qiviut in one of Yarn Harlot's books and was quite intrigued. Shall be interested to see what you make with it :-)
