Looking for an original, not-your-every-day sock yarn? Look no further than Kiwi! Part of the Zealana Performance Series, Kiwi is a machine-washable blend of New Zealand merino, cotton, and possum -talk about one-of-a-kind! Available in 16 bright, chalky pastels, it is all too easy to start imagining the possibilities with Kiwi: stripy shawls for evening strolls on the beach, lacey cardigans and tanks, adorable socks to wear with your favorite slip-ons... we could go on and on! 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.
