  • Knitters now have the opportunity to knit the warmest of garments with this luxury blend of 60% Merino Wool, 30% Possum fur and 10% Mulberry Silk.
  • This yarn does not feel like an 8 ply but the fill of the possum fur make it knit like an 8 ply.
  • The inclusion of the Possum fur doubles the warmth of the wool and creates soft and incredibly warm handknits that breath.
  • Each skein of 100gms has around 420m (459 yards) of yarn.
  • The needle size is 3.75mm or 4mm and you would need 3-5 skeins for an adult garment.
  • Hand wash in warm water and dry flat. Do not iron. Dry cleanable.
  • Proudly New Zealand made by Touchyarns and available in 9 gorgeous colour shades.

    Merino and possum yarn

    Published by Emily Wied on 11th Feb 2018

    I purchased this yarn about ten years ago for myself and some for a gift while visiting the Tin Shed. My friend and I both knit caps with it and absolutely love the warmth and lightness in weight they have. I just recently sent for a couple more skeins for another nice project. I hope it continues to be available. Thank you for carrying it, Tin Shed!

    Soft and warm and easy to knit

    Published by Cheryl on 13th Apr 2016

    A lovely wool to knit with. Managed to put into balls fairly easily by wrapping it around the top of a chair and balling it that way (my husbands suggestion). It is expensive but I think worth the money as it is much cheaper to knit a garment than purchase one in the stores,
    especially in Australia, as possum knitwear is very expensive .Would highly recommend this yarn
