Gloves in Merino Possum
These gloves from Merino Possum are up to 30% warmer than traditional wool products. The reason is that opossum fur fibers – in relation to other types of fur such as e.g. cashmere, wool and angora – are hollow and contain more air, giving a higher degree of insulation and a light water-repellent material. When the fur from opossum is combined with merino wool you get a warm and very soft material. At the same time, the mixture of merino wool and opossum coat means that the material does not begin to float. Merino Possum is an exclusive product from New Zealand made from a blend of 60% merino wool and 40% opossum fur.
Machine washable (wool programme), dry flat. Do not tumble dry. Alternately, Merino Possum products can be aired outside – preferably at below zero degrees. This will bring out the fur handsomely.
