Gloves in blend of Merino wool and Possum fur
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.
Machine washable (wool wash) and should be dried lying down. Does not tolerate drying. As an alternative, Merino Possum products can instead be aired outside – preferably in frost temperatures – then the coat in the material comes out beautifully.
