Supreme Possum Merino
Premium Quality Yarn from New Zealand

We are happy to be able to bring you a new blend of merino wool, Australian possum fur, and silk, direct from New Zealand.

While yarns incorporating possum fur have been available from time to time, this new blend contains 40% fur, a larger proportion than most blends.  Plus, Supreme Possum Merino incorporates 10% silk, rather than the nylon sometimes used to provide strength.  Add the well-known qualities of New Zealand merino wool and this is a blend like no other:  supremely soft, supremely warm, and long wearing.  This yarn will quickly become a favorite.

Supreme Possum Merino Sport  Supreme Possum Merino’s unique New Zealand yarn provides garments that are light, soft and very warm. The possum fur is hollow and, when spun with merino wool, produces a hardwearing yarn with superior insulating qualities.
In knitwear, possum fur, unlike angora, resists pilling and is a lot fluffier.  The ten percent silk content provides strength and luster.

Supreme Possum Merino’s blend of possum fur and merino wool gives a range of lightweight, warm and hard wearing yarns suitable for either hand knitting or weaving.

  • Feels like cashmere (only yummier)
  • Hard wearing
  • Light weight
  • Warm in winter, cool in summer.
  • 5% of every purchase goes to saving New Zealand’s native birds in particular the kiwi and kokako.
Because of the light weight of the possum fur, Supreme Possum Merino provides excellent yardage per gram. The yarn will not pill and it is one of the warmest known fibres around.
