About Zealana

Zealana is a brand of ultra soft, light, warm luxury hand knitting yarns produced by Woolyarns Limited in New Zealand.  A leading yarn innovator dedicated to elevating New Zealand’s world-renowned natural fibers with the exceptional properties of New Zealand Brushtail Possum fiber.


Preservation & Protection Commitment

Since its introduction to New Zealand by fur traders in the late 19th century, the non-native brushtail possum population has reached staggering proportions largely due to the lack of natural predators that would otherwise maintain an ecological balance. The consequences of their rapidly increasing numbers are many, including damaging impacts on New Zealand’s native flora and fauna.

Zealana is committed to the responsible management of the brushtail possum in New Zealand. When you choose our luxury knitting yarns, you are choosing to be a part of our sustainability story.
