Strength and warmth
By Alison the speed picker
from Downers Grove, Il
I used this to make an afghan because possum wears like iron. It was expensive, but blankets get a lot of wear and I don't want it to look beat up in a year. True to it's nature, the blanket continues to look like it just came off my needles, despite hard use and pets.
Most people would find this best for hats, mittens and other things that must be warm and durable. Though expensive, it's worth the cost for large items that you want to use, but keep as an heirloom.
