Washing instructions: You are able to gently handwash this item with a recommended wool wash detergent. Washing enhances the throw by allowing the possum fibre to fluff up making it warmer and softer
Possum fur has a unique hollow structure which traps air, providing exceptional insulation properties. It also has no scales, making it silky soft to the touch. The addition of fine merino lambswool and Mulberry silk adds strength, additional warmth and silky softness to the garments.
The New Zealand brushtail possum is an introduced species brought to NZ from Australia in 1837. With no natural predators, they have become New Zealands most damaging animal pest, wreaking havoc on native forests and wildlife, including the iconic kiwi. The use of possum fur in knitwear helps to preserve New Zealands unique and beautiful environment.
