Upcycled Possum Merino

4 ply and 8 Ply Hand Knitting Yarn

This yarn is a sustainable choice made from factory offcuts and virgin possum fur and merino wool.

Possum Fur  -  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.


What is Upcycling?

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

This is upcycling in action! Turning what is normally a waste stream into a first grade, high quality product.
