Supreme Possum is a superior possum/merino blend with 40% fur content.  The possum fur is hollow and, spinning with Merino wool, produces Supreme Possum Merino's superior, hard wearing, heat retaining yarn. The possum fur is painstakingly hand-plucked so the yarn structure and attributes remain intact. Machine plucking breaks down the hollow fibres, resulting in a fibre with less quality and length. 

Supreme Possum Merino’s yarn provides garments that are lighter, softer and very warm. The hollow core of the possum fibre traps a tunnel of air that provides up to 30% more warmth than 100% wool garments and 35% more warmth than cashmere. In knitwear, possum fur, unlike angora, resists pilling, is a lot fluffier and has minimal to no skin irritation.

We have found that you can knit the 8ply yarn as a 10ply yarn with excellent results.
