Qiviut is the ultimate luxury fiber and it is from the undercoat of a musk ox.  I have knitting with qiviut yarn in the past but have never spun the fiber.

I was lucky to purchase some qiviut fiber and decided to try my hand at spinning it with my supported russian spindle from TexasJeans.

The qiviut fiber - clean and dehaired.
Spindle spun single on my birdseye maple russian spindle.
My plan for a sample is to ply with the reeled silk that I learned to do at SOAR.
I transferred the single to a bobbin and found some tools at home to facilitate that.
