We are delighted to welcome to our beautiful collection of yarns, our new Winter treasure, Okewa. Celebrating our family heritage, Okewa is a unique blend of possum, merino and silk. Delivered into our hands from our local farmers, carrying the values and principals we live by as custodians of the land. Te Reo for ‘Rain Cloud’, Okewa is a collection of endlessly warm knits that boast an airy lightness and supreme softness, made to be treasured through cozy Winter days. It is a gift to share this beautiful yarn sustainably derived from our land with you. Protecting our native wildlife, flora and fauna through the eradication of possums is essential to promoting sustainable agricultural development and the biodiversity of our land. Blending New Zealand ZQ merino wool, by-product possum fur and Mulberry silk way, this beautiful yarn celebrates our journey beyond sustainability, towards regenerative practices. Working with local makers allows us to control the production process from the quality of fibre through to the final stitch. It is special and rewarding to know everyone that has been involved in creating these knits on a personal level. Endlessly soft and lovingly warm, each Okwea knit has been crafted with great care and love in our Auckland workroom. We hope you enjoy it.
