Possum fur has a very fine, hollow fibre which adds to its insulation properties. Being a natural fibre possum fur also absorbs moisture well, drawing it away from the body into the centre of the fibre. These unique possum fur characteristics mean that it can’t freeze and make it extremely warm.
The hollow fibre doesn’t mean that possum fur is a good insulator, it means it is amazingly lightweight. When used to create possum merino knitwear the combination of possum in the fabric leads to very lightweight garments.
According to some sources possum fur is 8% warmer and 14% lighter than wool.
All mens garments are made in New Zealand by Lothlorian.
