This sumptuous blend of premium New Zealand merino, exotic possum, and luxurious cashmere is impossible to put down once you've got your fingers on it! Part of Zealana's Artisan Series, Tui is a super-soft chunky yarn with a light, lofty feel that makes it perfect for classic hats, scarves and cowls! Whether it involves complex cables or simple stockinet stitch, Tui is a wonderful choice for a wide range of projects that require and extra touch of luxury! 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 loving 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.
