About Possum Merino

Possum Merino is a unique New Zealand yarn made from blending natures finest, Possum fur and Merino lamb’s wool.

Possum fibre has a hollow core that traps air and thus gives excellent insulation with an extremely high warmth to weight ratio. When blended with fine Merino, it creates a luxuriously soft, lightweight garment with low pilling properties and superior fibre strength. Research has shown it to be 55% warmer than Merino alone and 35% warmer than cashmere.

Ecowool Care about the Environment

The use of Possum fibre in New Zealand benefits our environment by contributing to the effort to protect our native forest and birds.

The brushtail Possum was introduced to New Zealand in 1837, it is a natural predator and an ecological threat. Each night possums eat over 21,000 tons of native vegetation. In addition to this they compete for food with native birds, also eating the birds eggs, chicks and insects. The commercial use of possum fur fibre is encouraged by conservation groups and plays an important role in the protection of New Zealand’s native fuana, 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 habitats, an environmentally sound choice.

    Amazing for warmth and all activities. I love this light weight, warm sweater. It is my second piece of possum/merino/silk clothing. It seems impossible that it works as well as it does. I wore it as a layer for a winter bike ride. I was NOT cold. I did sweat a bit, but the moisture moved through my sweater to my outer layers. If my outer layer had breathed better, I wouldn’t have even known it was ever wet because this sweater was dry when I got home. It does not smell either. My husband was so impressed with its performance that he is now shopping for one for skiing. I have started wearing this sweater for all kinds of events: outdoor activities, around the house, family gatherings, and at work. I am warm and comfortable in all conditions. I will be getting another one at some point. A word of caution, though, there is some static with these sweaters.
