Item details

Zealana RIMU yarn is a sumptuous, hardwearing yarn a part of the PERFORMA SERIES blends. Its unique makeup of 60% fine New Zealand merino and 40% brushtail possum make it the perfect choice for garments that need to go the extra mile and back again...with lots of washings in between. Zealana hand knitting yarns offer superior lightness and warmth due to the exceptional thermal properties of the hollow brushtail possum fibre. Fabrics made from “Zealana” yarn are 55% warmer than 100% merino wool and 35% warmer than 100% cashmere. Zealana hand knitting yarns are ultra soft to touch due to the fibre scale structure and the unique finishing process. Zealana hand knitting yarns are more durable and independent testing shows that fabrics knitted from Zealana yarns are less inclined to pill compared to other fabrics knit using fibres like 100% cashmere or ultra fine merino.

The non-native brushtail possum population has reached staggering proportions largely due to the lack of natural predators causing an ecological imbalance. The consequences of their rapidly increasing numbers are many, including damaging impacts on New Zealand’s native flora and fauna.

Zealana is committed to the responsible management of the brushtail possum in New Zealand, and when you choose Zealana luxury knitting yarns, you are choosing to be a part of a sustainable story.
