    I wore my vest literally every day all winter, over various cashmere crew neck sweaters. Having the bit of standing collar helped keep me feeling warm. I saw a similar vest from another company in an airport shop in Auckland before returning to the US from a trip, and bought it as a gift for my daughter. I later wished I had bought one for myself so looked online for the same one. The free shipping to the US made me order from Ecowool rather than the other company. I ordered a Medium based on the size chart (36″ chest) but I think I probably should have ordered a Small to get a more flattering fitted look. Even so, I’ve been very happy with the purchase!

    Dear Eco staff,
    We have just received delivery of an order from you of a possum/merino vest for my wife and she is delighted with it! Only ordered last Tuesday and we couldn’t believe it when it arrived so promptly. Very efficient! We are not used to ordering on the net but your website was clear and was easy to use to place an order. At close to 90 yrs. I only needed
    minor advice to make sure I sent the money correctly but it went well!
    My wife is a Kiwi and is looking forward to wearing the vest and enjoying it’s feel and warmth. It can get cold even up here on the Gold Coast.
    I lived up in Paihia for 8 years and could have passed your place many times (back in the mid eighties).
    My turn next winter for a man’s pullover.
    Keep up the good work and congratulations.
    Regards,
    Rob and Allison – Australia

    Best of luck with your business,

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.
