The v-neck jumper for men is probably the most classic of all men's sweater styles, dating back to at least the early twentieth-century and popularised - like so much of modern men's style - by the Duke of Windsor. Originally a casual look, the v-neck can be worn with an open collared shirt or with a tie, under a jacket or on its own. It's retained its popularity because it is a flattering style that draws the eye upwards to the face and reduces the quantity of material covering the torso. Sturdily constructed and finely knitted from luxurious New Zealand possum merino, this is the ferrari of v-necks - a garment that should feature in every well-dressed man's wardrobe.
Invented in the 1990s by spinning possum fur with New Zealand merino wool , possum merino is often called the 'cashmere of New Zealand', or the 'miracle fibre'. It is one of the warmest natural fibres in the world, 55% warmer than merino wool and 35% warmer than cashmere. It is soft, incredibly luxurious to touch, and extremely light. It's machine washable on a delicate cycle, anti-pill and anti-static. It retains its warmth even when wet, and dries quickly. Best of all, because the brushtail possum is an introduced pest that devastates New Zealand's natural resources, by buying possum merino you are helping to save the plant and animal life of this beautiful country.
This product is a luxurious blend 20% Possum, 70% Merino and 10% Silk.
