Here's my attempt to capture this design feature. As always, click the photo for a closer view.
This is the yarn that came from Kerry in New Zealand last year, finally in wearable form. For this particular yarn, possum fiber is blended with merino (also a specialty of New Zealand) and silk, making it extremely soft with a delightful and unique brownish-gray halo created by the possum fur. Follow this link to a New Zealand government website listing with a photo describing this non-native possum pest. I only used 2/3rds of the yarn Kerry sent me to make this long-sleeved cardigan. What shall I do with the rest?
