Zealana Rimu DK Yarn - 12 Dark Napo
12 Dark Napo shown $16.40
It doesn't get much better than Rimu! This classic blend of New Zealand merino wool and possum fiber is unbelievably silky soft. Seriously, you have to feel it to believe it (we really wish the internet had a yarn-feeling-feature so you could get a touch-test of Rimu)! Strong and hard-wearing, Rimu DK is machine-washable making it perfect for projects you want to last a lifetime. The luxurious texture and slight halo of the possum fibers make Rimu DK a versatile yarn that can be used for all types of projects from apparel to accessories to home decor. Looking for something a little lighter in weight? Be sure to check out Rimu Fingering! 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.  Read the full description...

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.
