Luxurious possum fur and Merino garments made here in New Zealand.
An exclusive blend of Merino wool, luxurious Brushtail Possum fibre and silk for strength, MerinominkTM is a refined combination of supreme comfort, excellent long wearing properties and beautiful design.
Possum Merino is unique in that it has featherweight softness and is incredibly warm, due to the hollow structure of the Brushtail Possum fibre, which traps air both within the fibre and in the fabric when blended with high crimp, Merino. The Brushtail Possum fibre has no scales and when blended with merino ‘throws’ to the surface of the yarn and resists pilling. MerinominkTM knitwear has outstanding durability and excellent performance characteristics.
The 100% natural fibres of the Possum Merino blend resist odour so MerinominkTM knitwear requires less washing, making it easier on you and the environment.
Please follow those on care label attached to the garment. Hand wash in cold water using a wool detergent, spin the excess water out in the washing machine and air dry naturally. Drycleanable.
About the Brushtail Possum
Introduced to New Zealand in 1837 from Australia and with no natural predators, the possum is New Zealand’s biggest ecological threat. Possums occupy 95% of New Zealand’s natural habitat, with an estimated population of 60 million. They are classified by New Zealand’s Department of Conservation (DOC) as pests.
The use of Brushtail Possum fibre in New Zealand benefits our environment by contributing to a reduction in the use of broadcast poisons and to the effort to protect our native forest and birds.
The use of Brushtail Possum Fibre is endorsed by DOC and WWF (World Wildlife Fund).
