A scrumptious lace-weight version of the light and luxurious Kiwi Fingering yarn, Kiwi Lace is easy to care for and a dream to work with. The New Zealand merino, cotton, and possum blend is feather-light and deliciously soft to the touch. Great for summer garments, breezy beachwear, delicate lace, and sheer, silky fabrics, you can't go wrong with Kiwi Lace! 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.
