Possum fur is reputed to be the third warmest fibre in the world surpassed only by the polar bear and arctic fox. Like the polar bear the fur is hollow allowing warm air to be trapped inside the fibre giving the fur a luxurious, warm and soft to touch feel while providing a natural insulation.
Blending Merino with Possum creates a fibre which has the properties of warmth, pill resistant and lightweight allowing the garment to maintain long lasting qualities.
NZ is the only place where possums can be legally harvested as it is a pest which feeds on our wildlife. Though wearing one of our garments you are not only wearing one of the rarest furs in the world but simultaneously helping to protect our native wildlife.
