When I first conceptualised this project I worried that people might not want to spend $200 plus on a knitting project. It turns out that our customers can spot an heirloom item when they see it, especially one of this calibre. Knitted in patriotic New Zealand merino and very ethically sound New Zealand possum fur, this blanket is one to hand down the generations.
To knit this blanket we have used 10 hanks of the Naturally Amuri 8ply which is a beautiful blend of of Possum and Merino wool. Knitting this blanket on 4.5mm needles gives the possum space to 'breath' and within a short space of time of finishing this project, the Possum rises to the surface giving the blanket a beautiful Possumey 'halo'.
