Zealana Heron Yarn - 03 Lichen Detailed Description

Zealana Heron Yarn - 03 Lichen
03 Lichen shown $10.60
Part of the Zealana Artisan Series, Heron is a truly unique light worsted weight single ply that only gets softer the more you wear it. An expertly blended mix of 80% New Zealand merino and 20% possum, each color of this softly spun yarn draws on multiple hues that result in understated yet complex heathered colorways. Ideal for sweaters, wraps, mittens, and caps, Heron is sure to become a favorite for creating knits that will last a lifetime. 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 lovingly 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.
