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 arrived at #EcoWool in Warkworth on a Wet windy Wednesday afternoon, a mere male, knowing only that I had to purchase some female possum/merino garments pronto, and have them posted to Napier by Saturday at the latest.
    The girls at this establishment were AAA+ helpful, made me feel at easy, done all the work for me and also budgeted my order, they where so helpful that at the counter on purchase they suggested I go online right there to make use of free shipping available. Once again they filled out my forms online zapped the card and hey presto, By early Thursday afternoon I received a phone call from Napier to say that the parcel had just arrived.and
    for NZ Post that is extremely fast, And for the ladies at this establishment, I am extremely grateful and will recommend their business to any and all.
