Merino Possum Blend Knitwear - Made in New Zealand
Made in NZ Merino Possum knitwear by New Zealand Nature Company is a blend of superfine New Zealand Merino wool and Possum fur. Soft like cashmere and 50% warmer than Merino alone. Our Merino Possum knitwear range includes sweaters, jumpers, cardigans, jackets, pullovers, vests, beanies, hats, scarves, gloves and more.
Possum Merino knitwear is luxuriously soft, incredibly lightweight, exceptionally warm and easy to wear. It won’t pill, it won’t wrinkle, it’s anti-static and is a market solution to an environmental challenge facing New Zealand. Once you’ve tried it nothing else will feel as warm and soft.
Why is New Zealand’s Possum Merino so warm?
Our Merino and Possum blend clothing is 35% warmer than Cashmere!
The possum fibre is hollow which provides incredible warmth without weight. Being scale free, it’s smooth and soft against your skin. It will not freeze - the only other fibre in the world known to have this same characteristic is polar bear fur!
Why is New Zealand Possum Merino ‘eco fur’ and endorsed by WWF?
Brushtail possums were introduced into New Zealand about 150 years ago from Australia. They have now multiplied to more than 70 million. With no predators, this pest has decimated huge tracts of New Zealand native forests eating 21,000 tons of vegetation nightly.
Both bird life (including the Kiwi) and many unique native tree species are threatened with extinction because of the Brushtail possum. This marsupial is only distantly related to the American Opossum and has a fur quality similar to Mink.

Customers love our knitwear!
"Just to let you know that the [Koru] jacket arrived safe & sound and I am very pleased with it, so much so that I have threatened my husband that when the cold weather arrives he might have to buy me another one! Thanks for the prompt service."

"This Christmas I gave my mother, who lives in England, a possum wool scarf, because it is light, unbreakable, therefore easy to airmail. She loves it. I was talking to her over the weekend and she said that as they've had a very stormy winter she's worn it nearly every day - and has extolled its virtues to all her friends."
