Zealana Rimu

Take a look at this pretty new stuff in the shop.
This gorgeous yarn is Zealana Rimu DK, an unusual merino/possum blend from New Zealand.  Look at those rich shades and saturated colors.  The gold is really something, and those blues are amazing.

It's hard to tell from the photos, but the yarn has a subtle heathery effect and a really pretty halo.  This basic knit three/purl three scarf really shows off the fuzzy possum halo. 
Rimu works so nicely for cables and texture and ribbing, even colorwork looks great.  It's an unusual yarn, but it knits up so nicely.  Come see for yourself!
