Step 1: Raw Qiviut(Musk ox)

This is a tray of unwashed raw Qiviut fibre.The 1 step in the processing is to wash,condition and dry the fibres.At this stage the qiviut is full of thick black guard hairs.The next step is to pick the fibers with a picker machine......this opens the fibers so we can add our own special blend of Anti-static products.The anti-static solutions allow the safe removal of the guard hairs without damaging the precious fibers while they are being worked on the machines.
