Thanks for visiting my webshop! I'm taking it a bit slower over the holidays. I will still process orders but it might take a little bit longer than usual before your order is shipped out. Have a wonderful and relaxing break! Thanks, Helene

Akaroa 8ply polwarth/possum

Hand-dyed, polwarth/possum
8ply, 100g skeins/approx 208m. Needles 4–6 mm.

Akaroa 75% polwarth, 25% possum
Akaroa In The Dark 70% polwarth, 30% dyed possum

Natural polwarth mixed with NZ possum fibres (brushtail possum). Possum gives a warm fabric with a halo (much warmer than pure wool). Fabrics containing possum fibre are less inclined to pill. Akaroa in the Dark has got dyed black possum fibre so it's a charcoal grey yarn that has been overdyed. The result is dark moody colourways. This yarn is woollen spun, it’s very light and blooms when being blocked (gauge is heavy DK/worsted). Works well for stranded and fair isle knitting. Suitable for garments, hats, scarves, mittens and big, cosy shawls. This yarn is not superwash treated.

End of line! What is listed is all there is left.

This yarn is spun in NZ
