Why choose Possum fur?
Possum fur is a hollow fibre, which allows it to trap and store your body warmth. Possum fur is said to be the third warmest fur in the world after polar bear and arctic fox.
Why Mix Possum Fur with Merino?
When Possum fur is spun with merino wool it creates a yarn that is light and strong ,whilst creating the highest heat retaining qualities. Possum fibre and merino yarn blended is the first natural yarn to be developed in the last 100 years, and only within the last couple of decades have they used it to create such beautiful products.
How do Possums affect our environment in New Zealand?
Possums are a pest in NZ. Endangering wild life and much more, millions of possums eat their way through thousands of tonnes of native forest every night, killing millions of native birds a year also eating the eggs of the young.
Help preserve our native fauna and flora while enjoying these beautiful garments.
