ABOUT POSSUM MERINO:
Possum Merino is a unique New Zealand yarn made from blending natures finest, Possum fur/fibre 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 and soon became an ecological threat. Each night possums eat over 21,000 tons of native vegetation, 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 beautiful and unique garment that will give you years of pleasure, but you have also contributed to the preservation of New Zealand’s natural habitats.
