About Possum Merino Knitwear
Possum merino knitwear is a beautiful & unique product that is made in New Zealand.
We often get contacted by people who are distraught after loosing possum merino knitwear purchased while on holiday in New Zealand.
Soft, fluffy & warm wool knitwear is always a welcome gift.
So what makes possum merino knitwear so different?
Technical research has shown that the possum fur hair shaft is hollow and has exceptional thermal insulating properties. This traps a layer of warm air near your skin.
And when blended with merino wool, garments are 55% warmer than pure 100% merino wool alone and 35% warmer than cashmere
Our luxury possum wool blend with silk is easier to wear, especially for people who find regular wool itchy.
We have a large range of possum merino wool knitwear accessories in stock and we can order in the men's knitwear or women's sweaters and knit jackets as needed.
We are often cheaper than the high street tourist shops. Shop online to save money on possum merino knitwear.
Working out the right knitwear sweater or jacket size for you
Use one of your favourite sweaters or knit jackets to check against our sizing chart on each garment page.
Fold the wool sweater in half down the center middle placing the sleeve flat to opposite sleeve.
Then measure from the center of the neck (where the sweater brand label is) on a diagonal line down the arm to the middle of the cuff edge.
Also measure the wool sweater while open and flat from about 3cm down from where the arm meets the body from side to side.
There is a potentially a 2-3cm variation in sizing for knitwear due to the manufacturing process, basically it's not an exact science.
