About Possum Merino
Once you’ve tried it nothing else will feel as warm and soft. Possum Merino is a wonderful blend of possum fur and superfine New Zealand Merino wool with a texture similar to cashmere - luxuriously soft, incredibly lightweight, exceptionally warm and easy to wear. It won’t pill, it won’t wrinkle, it’s anti-static and is an innovative and practical market solution to an environmental challenge facing New Zealand.
The Brushtail Possum fibre has two rare qualities:
- No scales so the fibre itself resists pilling as there is no friction. Possum Merino garments stay looking new for ages. The more possum fibre in the blend the more the garments resist pilling!
- A hollow structure so the fibre has a very high warmth to weight ratio, air is trapped both within the fibre and in the fabric when blended with high crimp, fine Merino (just like insulation) so that is why Possum Merino garments are so warm yet not bulky. For its weight, Merino wool blended with Brushtail Possum fibre is twice as warm as any other wool blend in the world!
Hand wash with care in cold water using mild wool detergent. Squeeze do not rub. Rinse well in cold water. Normal spin.
Do not tumble dry. Do not bleach. Dry cleanable
