Create a truly unique hand knitted garment from this striking hand painted possum, silk and merino wool yarn. Browse through the colour options or photos to get the full range of solid colours for these lovely natural fibre combination yarns, including our new colour addition: pistachio.
The luxury blend of 60% merino wool, 30% possum fur and 10% Mulberry silk is super soft and incredibly warm making a great choice for everyday garments.
Each skein of 100 grams has around 240 metres (459 yards) of yarn which is stated to be an 'ultrafine 8ply'. The manufacturer recommends using a 3.75mm – 4mm needle, but we would suggest knitting it as a 4ply yarn on 2.75mm and 3.25mm needles as this will give you a firmer knitted garment. Ensure you knit with a firm tension as it may stretch when knitted loosely. It is recommend that 3-5 skeins are needed to complete an adult garment.
To achieve an even distribution of colour throughout your garment, use two balls at once, knitting two rows from each ball, carrying the yarn up the side of the garment.
Hand wash in warm water and dry flat. Do not iron. Dry cleanable.
