possum fur clothing
Possum fur is silky smooth to the touch and is the ultimate in luxury when used to create furnishings, footwear or garments.
Possum Merino is a luxurious and unique New Zealand yarn made from blending two of nature's finest fibres - hand selected possum fur and superfine merino wool.
Each fibre is hollow and thus gives excellent insulation whilst ensuring that the garments are light and very soft. As well as incredible softness and warmth the yarn is strong and durable. It wears better than cashmere or mohair and has superior anti-piling qualities.
Originally introduced from overseas, the possums in New Zealand eat 22,000 tonnes of our forests each night. The commercial use of possum fur fibre is therefore encouraged by conservation groups and plays an important role in the protection of New Zealand's native fauna, flora and wildlife.
