Possum-O-Possum!

I just learned something life changing. There is a yarn made by at least a couple of different companies, which is spun from POSSUM FUR. It's an Australian/New Zealand possum, so it's not exactly the wiry, trash-speckled coat you'd find in your own backyard here in Indiana, but STILL. If there was every any question about what fiber I'd be using for the hourglass sweater I intend to make for myself, an answer has been found. I WILL make myself a possum sweater.

Nick has a possum down hat and he LOVES it. It is very warm and incredibly soft.It would make a lovely sweater! Where can you buy possum yarn?
