Air is an extra-special yarn comprised of 40% cashmere, 40% possum down and 20% silk. Part of the Zealana Luxuria Series, Air is exquisitely soft and even lighter and warmer than pure cashmere! Ideal for luxury items such as feather-weight scarves and shawls, in addition to ethereal fabrics for any type of apparel, Air is the must-have for truly unique projects. Fun facts about possum:
1) It is lightweight and warm. Because individual possum fibers are hollow, they don't weigh much at all, but are able to retain an exceptional amount of heat.
2) Yarn with possum is soft, not prickly. The unbelievable softness of possum is a combination of the microscopic scales of the fibers themselves and the finishing processed used when creating possum yarns.
3) Possum is pilling-resistant. That's right! Unlike many other natural fibers, possum does not have a tendency to pill, which makes it great for those heirloom projects you love to make and enjoy for years on end.
4) It absorbs moisture. Possum absorbs a reasonable amount of moisture without feeling damp, which allows the fibers to buffer the body's microclimate when outside or room temperatures change.
