Possum and 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.
Each night the possums in New Zealand eat 22,000 tonnes of our forests. The commercial use of possum fur fibre is thus encouraged by conservation groups and plays an important role in the protection of New Zealand's native fauna, flora and wildlife.Your purchase not only means that you have acquired a unique garment that will give you years of pleasure, but also that you have contributed to the preservation of New Zealand's natural beauty.
