    What Will You Be Doing In 30 Days Time ?
    Imagine it's 30 days from today...

    You've received in the post this Possum-Wool Yarn Offer - Natural (500 gms / 1.1 lb per cone) all the way from New Zealand , and it arrived in perfect condition.

    You have given it to a loved one, AND they are REALLY pleased with receiving it from you.

    In fact, they are so pleased with the thoughtfulness and uniqueness of this gift - " You got it from New Zealand - the other side of the world - just for me!", they are looking for ways to repay you, even after you keep saying "It was nothing - I immediately thought of you when I saw it."

    Now Come Back To This Moment...
    How did that feel? And guess what?
    It can all come true for you, too.

    Truly, it has captured my heart. Who can, resist?

    An exceptional material, possum hair is. Source it from West Virginia, one can.

    The possum is an entirely different animal from the North American opossum.

    By the way - we kill possums here regularly by driving and hunting them as a past time. Its good to know that now their furs are being put to good use. Excellent! Greetings from New Zealand.

    I did acquired socks and gloves in Auckland, New Zealand for my wife. Made out of possum mand merino. As a souvenir, since they where selling everywhere.

    I haven't been impressed with the fabric, but they work acceptably. Too fussy for my taste. I would have bought her a sweater if I had liked the fabric more.

    Lighter than Alpaca... Fluffier also.
    I like Alpaca more... at least the good one.
