Yet Another One: This Time In Qiviut

Yet another One Skein Luxury Kerchief. This one is in Cottage Craft qiviut, which I picked up at the Frolic.

It's actually a blend -- 50% merino, 50% qiviut. Qiviut is, for those who were wondering, the softest, loveliest fibre in the world. It's the undercoat of the musk ox. Really. More from Wikipedia. One of the things I love about the yarn is that it's undyed -- that's the actual colour. And it doesn't shrink or felt, which means it makes a terrific sock yarn. And oh look, they've got one for sale! I didn't actually need to know that...

But in the meantime, I had 150m or so of a fingering weight, and so I worked another kerchief.
