A limited edition yarn named for the 15% possum fur content. The fur was sourced from possums trapped as part of an organised attempt to rid them from New Zealand. They are an introduced pest, responsible for the systematic destruction of precious native forests and birdlife. The yarn knits up into soft, very lightweight yet warm garments and accessories. When knitted, the “fuzz” of the fur can be seen on the surface of the fabric.
Available Undyed, or in several hand dyed colours
