Softness and warmth without sacrificing durability. Rimu blends brushtail possum and merino wool to create a soft and resiliant plied yarn that retains its character even after machine washing. Brushtail possum blooms beautifully after washing, and we enourage knitters not to knit this yarn to tightly so that the stitches have room to fill out and create a lovely halo. Colours in Rimu have an earthy understone thanks to the natural character of brushtail possum. Items knit in Rimu will be soft with a medium drape and a gentle halo. Perfect for every day wear garments or accessories.
