We are proud to present this collection of the finest quality New Zealand-made women’s knitwear. If you are looking for stunning contemporary styled merino wool and possum merino clothing, or a special item from our timeless classics, then Ecowool has something for you.


Why is possum merino blend knitwear so popular?

Possum fibre has a hollow core that traps air and gives excellent insulation with an extremely high warmth to weight ratio. When blended with fine merino wool it creates a luxuriously soft, lightweight knitwear garment with low pilling properties and superior fibre strength. Research has the shown possum merino blend it to be 55% warmer than merino alone and 35% warmer than cashmere.

What are your top two must-haves from the women’s knitwear range for this season?

There are so many stunning items to choose from, but you won’t go wrong with either the black Possumsilk two-tone jacket or two-way possum merino poncho. The truly luxurious and dressy Possumsilk jacket can be worn on so many occasions and the stylish poncho drapes beautifully and looks and feels equally amazing when worn dressy or casual. And don’t forget we have free shipping on all the items in our women’s knitwear range.

How do I care for my new possum merino knitwear poncho?

Possum merino knitwear is very easy care as it is naturally odour resistant. Gently hand wash in cool water using a small amount of mild wool detergent, then rinse well in cool water before gently squeezing or rolling your poncho in a towel. Dry flat in the shade – do not tumble dry – and iron on the wool setting. Your poncho can also be dry cleaned.

Our elegant knitwear range features sweaters, cardigans, jackets, and wraps, plus a huge selection of cosy hats, socks, scarves and gloves, all crafted using premium grade natural fibres of merino wool, possum, and silk to create clothing of the highest quality.

As well as being incredibly soft, warm and light to wear, the fabrics are strong and durable, creating wonderfully comfortable and long-lasting garments that come in a range of colours and tones.
