Brushtail Possum Fiber

MHN-BPF4

Availability:
1-3 Days

This is the fur of the Brushtail Possum from New Zealand. It is one of the softest and warmest natural fibers and difficult to find in raw, un-blended form. The hair of the possum is hollow with the tips having a micron count of 1-2, which makes cashmere sound coarse!! When spun it creates a halo effect similar to angora rabbit, but without the poke or pilling of angora.

  • Hand carders or drum carders designed for fine fibers work best.
  • It can be washed before blending or after spinning when you full your yarn.

We recommend blending it at anywhere from a 5-40% ratio with other fibers. A very light fiber so there is more actual fiber per ounce than similar exotic fibers. If you blend it at 30%, 1 oz. turns into 3!
This is unwashed fiber. It can be washed before blending or after spinning when you full your yarn.

Specifications:

  • Content:100% Brushtail Possum Fiber
  • Weight: 125g (4.4 oz.)
  • Micron Average: 14 - 19
