About Zealana Air Chunky Yarn

Zealana Air Chunky is both lighter and warmer than a 100% cashmere yarn. How do they work this magic? The yarn uses a chainette construction with gives it the chunky size without the heaviness. The blend of possum down, cashmere and mulberry silk makes it soft and light as dandelion fluff. This is hands-down Zealana’s most luxurious yarn.

If you’re looking for a luxurious, chunky yarn that is slightly more budget-friendly, try Zealana Tui yarn. If you’d like a much thinner Air, try Zealana Air Superfine yarn.

About Zealana

Woolyarns, the maker of Zealana, was the first company to spin possum yarns. They created the Zealana brand in order to showcase their ultra soft, light, warm and durable luxury hand knitting yarns. Their Luxuria series of yarns features luxurious blends of possum and cashmere. While Zealana is now owned by Extraordinary Yarns, Woolyarns still manufactures all of their yarn in New Zealand.

Settlers brought the non-native possum to New Zealand in the 19th century. When you buy Zealana yarns, you are helping manage the possum population in New Zealand, and helping prevent possum predation on New Zealand native birds. You’re also getting yarn made with a fibre that is breathable, warmer than either merino or cashmere, and luxuriously soft. Possum fibres are hollow, which makes them both warmer and lighter than many other fibres.
