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 got my shawl yesterday and I wanted you to know that I absolutely love it!! The color, size, style, and craftsmanship were all perfect. I am already looking at other items. One per pay check? 🙂 Thank you very much.

    Wonderful Poncho

    I bought the Moss Stitch Poncho in Mist which is a lovely mid-grey. The traditional shape sits beautifully on my small frame (54kg). Many wraps/ponchos are too voluminous or long for me as I am 160cm. I have been searching for a neat shape and this one reaches the upper thigh and the sides sit level with hip-bone. The diagonal shape, seaming and v-neck is especially flattering for petites. The Moss Stitch gives a great subtle texture. It is extremely soft and very warm. I am also very happy with Ecowool’s customer service. A great overall experience.
