Comments about true Rimu:

This little gem is a very well kept secret! Who would have thought POSSUM could be so soft? It looks and feels like wool until you wash it...that's when the magic happens! Even if you can't wear woolen items because of the itching...you won't find that this is itchy at all!

Comments about true Rimu:

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.
