Purrino 8 ply


Brand new this season, ‘Purrino’ 8ply.

Introducing our lovely new possum merino 8ply yarn. 

Available in 12 beautiful shades.

20% NZ Brushtail Possum combined with 80% 18 micron fine Merino gives this yarn a superbly soft handle and noticeable ‘loft’ as the possum fibres come to the surface of the knitted fabric.  This creates the exclusive and luxurious warmth only achievable with possum, natures best insulator.  With these fine fibres it is possible to achieve excellent yarn length for weight with 140m on a 40g ball. 

The natural light and dark shades of Possum fibres create a melange effect when blended and dyed with Merino, the length on the ball means less weight and cost per garment.  We have been in the yarn business for 46 years, this the most satisfying yarn we’ve brought to market.  Enjoyment for the wearer and crafter both.
