Actually, possums from New Zealand and Australia -- the kind from which yarn is made -- is quite different from the opossum we have in the United States. Possums down under are really cute and very very soft; yarn made from their hair is lovely.

This is what they look like: http://www.wildanimalpark.co.uk/animals/australia/Possum.jpg

Long time no see. Maybe this week at Java Station since I've never been. I just had to add that the possum is REALLY nice stuff. Super soft and super warm (hollow like polar bear fur).
