The 50g ball size will appeal to those who enjoy color work and the sport weight, is perfect for creating finer garments and accessories and works up a lot faster than fingering.
The Polwarth provides excellent stitch definition, stitch memory and sheen, the Alpaca gives a silky drape and the Possum content is perfectly balanced to bring a subtle marl and soft halo to the knitted yarn. Possum has similar qualities to mink. The fibres are hollow, light, non-itchy, extremely warm and (unlike angora) Possum is pill resistant. Alpaca is an extraordinarily fine fibre with microscopic air pockets creating unique thermal properties. It’s durable, non-flammable and non-itchy containing no lanolin with a smooth cell structure.
