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.

Caring for your Knitwear

Possum Merino knitwear is very easy care. It is naturally odour resistant so requires less washing, which is kinder on you, and the environment.

When washing is required, please refer to your garment care label for specific washing instructions.

Gentle hand wash in cool water using a small amount of mild wool detergent.

  • Do not use bleach or spot cleaning products
  • Rinse well in cool water – hot water will cause shrinkage
  • We recommend using the same water temperature for both washing and rinsing your garment
  • Gently squeeze and/or roll garment in a towel to absorb excess water
  • Dry flat in shade
  • Do not tumble dry
  • Iron on wool setting
  • Drycleanable

    Thank you for such fast service. We visited New Zealand 15 years ago and I just lost my last pair of gloves that are the only things I can wear. We had contacted someone in Auckland that gave me your website a few years ago and thank heavens I kept it… You have been so efficient and I really appreciate it.

    Bought my first pair of possum gloves in a duty-free shop in N.Z. while waiting for a flight home to the States. Little did I know how much I would love these gloves…far better than Thinsulate! Buy more than one pair. They are not indestructible but will last a Winter or two. We get miserable winters in Wisconsin, so I wear my gloves all the time during that season. Been buying possum gloves since 2002!

    The gloves are lovely and warm, just what we were looking for, especially my husband when he walks the dogs at 6am each morning.

    Thank you and best regards
