Zealana, innovator of New Zealand made, hand knitting yarns introduces AIR, a luxurious blend that is ultra soft, pill-resistant, durable, and lighter and warmer than 100% cashmere. Finally there is a high-end knitting yarn that takes the luxurious qualities of cashmere and actually improves on them! AIR’s amazing properties derive from its unique combination of 40% New Zealand brushtail possum down, 40% cashmere and 20% mulberry silk.
AIR is the first yarn from the newly created Luxuria Series, Zealana’s premium product category. AIR differs from Zealana’s current line in that it is the first yarn to incorporate Zealana’s distinctive process of separating the brushtail possum fibre’s softest down from its courser, darker hairs. The result is all the high-performance qualities of brushtail possum yarns with a luxuriously soft feel and lighter coloration. In combination with the finest cashmere and silk, this yarn achieves a level of quality and unique attributes unsurpassed in the hand knitting marketplace.
There’s something very special in the Air!
