Collection: 12ply NZ Possum / Merino / Cashmere

100% natural Aotearoa fibre. This is a gloriously soft, chunky-yet-lightweight yarn comprised of 15% NZ Brushtail Possum, 15% NZ Cashmere and 60% NZ Merino. This combination of highest quality, luxury fibres creates an exquisitely soft, insulating and durable yarn. It's a delight to work with and wear.

70m per 100g

$40 for a 100g skein or $200 for a Sweater Set of 5 x 100g skeins of the same colour (pre-order only). 

Please note that Sweater Sets are pre-orders only so are not in stock, please allow approximately 4 - 8 weeks for any Sweater Set pre-orders.

Small batch, hand-dyed yarn from my little studio in Lower Hutt, Aotearoa/New Zealand. Everything, from sourcing the yarn to shipping, is done with love and care by hand. The nature of hand-dyed yarn is that no two skeins are exactly the same, creating beautifully nuanced colourways. 

I source finest quality, fully traceable and mulesing-free, ethically, sustainably farmed yarns from New Zealand and abroad.  

The dyes I use are made in Australia and New Zealand.  They are acid dyes that are used for dyeing protein-based fibre (such as wool and silk). I take every care to use only the quantities necessary to create my colourways. This means that the dyepot is fully exhausted when the dyeing is complete - that is, the water is clear, so I can reuse the same water for the next batch.
