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.

    I just wanted to let you know that my order arrived yesterday and I am very pleased with everything, as always! I especially enjoyed the lovely card with your kind words. My husband and I enjoyed looking up the Kia bird (on the card with a Kiwi bird) and seeing how beautiful they are! We would so love to come to New Zealand, which we dream about!

    The extra touch of gift wrapping all of my orders with a bow means a lot to me because it’s not done by anywhere else I order from, and it tells me that you really care about your customers and that you are truly happy to have made a sale!
    I’ll be posting reviews about the sweaters I ordered because I really do LOVE them both!

    You have touched my heart with your kindness and I wanted to tell you so.

    Warmest regards,

    For your records and info, the mitts arrived today. Thank you very much. They are perfect.
    You should encourage Hobart stores to purchase some, as you can not get mitts anywhere over here.
