Upcycled Possum Merino

8 Ply Hand Knitting Yarn

This yarn is a sustainable choice made from upcycled possum fur and merino wool.


Off-cuts from garments and yarn that don't make it into a finished product are shredded by our local partners in Christchurch and then sent down the road to be carded and blended with virgin wool and spun into a beautifully soft hand knitting yarn. 

25% Possum Fur  -  75% Merino Wool

Possum fur is a super fibre that has a hollow core, making it exceptionally light and insulating.


Merino wool is very fine, soft and helps wick moisture away from the skin, preventing odours and keeping you dry.


The blending of these brilliant natural fibres creates beautifully soft yarn, unsurpassed in warmth and durability.
