Profile

This Canadian knitwear company specializes in luxurious, handmade sweaters with delicate detailing. The store is named after the rare material many of its garments are made from: qiviuk, a supersoft yarn spun from the fur of musk oxen. Apart from its namesake fabric, the brand has also trademarked its own feathery variety of yarn, Heavenly Alpaca, which is knitted into numerous items. This upscale shop within the Plaza Hotel features marble flooring and ornate, blond-wood displays stacked with the brand’s various lines. The Royal collection offers ultrafeminine cardigans, vests, and shawls incorporating hand-crocheted Belgian lace, Qiviuk silk, mother-of-pearl, and Swarovski crystals, while the rustic English Countryside collection includes earthy tan-and-brown sweaters for both sexes sporting details like musk-ox-leather buttons and beaver collars. A more limited line of home and travel gear features lightweight blankets, shawls, and other portable, giftable items. The silky wares have been worn by British royalty and celebrity clients like Francis Ford Coppola and Sarah Jessica Parker.
