  1. Zealand brush-tail possum yarn 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Feb 2016

    I just finished a scarf using 5 colors of the Rimu brush-tail possum yarn. The colors are wonderful and although the yarn isn't tightly twisted, it was easy to knit with. Even better than the gorgeous yarn is knowing that I'm using a product made from an introduced and invasive species that is destroying New Zealand's native birds - talk about a real win-win! I followed the instructions for blocking and then dried the scarf in the dryer since the yarn did shed quite a bit. It is now so soft and the colors are just beautiful.
