Zealana yarns use brushtail possum in their yarns, produced responsibly and sustainably, and the high proportion of possum in Rimu makes this a hardwearing yarn that won’t felt or shrink, and is particularly suited to cardigans and children’s wear. The wool has a bit of a fur feel to it, with no itch factor, and shows off stitch definition well. Swatch and check your gauge with this yarn since it is likely to grow in the wash. Best of all, finished items can go in the washing machine.
