Zealana Kauri Worsted Yarn - 03 Waikura Detailed Description

Zealana Kauri Worsted Yarn - 03 Waikura
03 Waikura shown $15.00
Kauri Worsted, part of the Zealana Performance Series, is a truly unique blend of New Zealand merino, possum and silk which gives the yarn extra stability as well as an extra soft texture. Hard-wearing and machine-washable, Kauri is a great yarn for projects you hope to use every day. We like it for sweaters, blankets, cowls, hats and mittens, just to name a few! 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.
