    I don’t think have ever heard of possum in fiber content. Thanks for the information and your pieces are super cute! Walk in style my friend

    Great set of accessories, and the comparison of the two yarns was interesting.

  4. My granddaughter loves all things pink … she accompanied me to pick out eyeglass frames … every frame she liked on me was, of course, pink! After the 10th pair of pink frames, I couldn’t take it any more … I have to go back without her. 🙂

  6. Hmmm … I would guess that it feels different depending on the person’s skin. When it’s really cold and/or windy, I reach for the possum! 🙂

  7. Even if I’m inside and get a chill, I reach for the SPM! I decided I need one in black so will be ordering another skein … 🙂

  8. Hmmm, I thought the Isle of Wright gets really cold and windy. So I checked a map; my geography is apparently terrible. I though your Isle was above Ireland or Scotland! 🙂

  9. Yes, dogs love us no matter what we wear! I wear my two headbands regularly … and I realized i need two more: one in black and one in red … then I’m outfitted for winter headwear. 🙂

    Lovely and thanks for the comparing the yarns. I have also just finished a pair of lacy fingerless gloves in pink Acrylic yarn for my daughter – she lives in Spain so doesn’t need a warm yarn (although they are surprisingly warm) and she loves pink! I am now doing a matching cowl to go with them..

    I do love a bit of ‘fit for purpose’ knitting. Great yarn choices for specific conditions. Who needs space fibres?

    This winter, I made mittens and a hat from Cascade 220 and I wear them when it is above freezing. On the cold days, i wear my merino wool accessories. I have never knit with possum yarn. I wonder if it is gentle for sensitive skin.

    Love that you did a comparison! You will look very chic indeed on your walks wearing those beautifully knitted accessories. I am very glad you liked the SPM. 🙂

  14. Great post, really useful to hear comparisons of yarn. I use the Cascade 220 a lot, particularly for children’s items and also for the ‘balaclava’s’ my son wears under his motorbike helmet, because it is 100% wool (non-flammable) but washable. Definitely going to try to find some Possum though, we thankfully don’t have too extreme weather here on the Isle of Wight but your set does look gorgeous. 🙂

    Those are lovely. I am not quite as ‘classy’ on my walks but it is at 5:30 AM and I have yet to hear the dog complain 🙂 the Elisbeth Collection is quite nice.
