The cable scarf is a traditional favourite, and with good reason. The cabling gives a beautiful texture to the scarf, and there's a well-designed vent to permit the scarf to be pulled through for an easy good look. What will surprise you is how light this scarf is - and yet how warm. That's because its knitted from beautiful possum merino.
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 is machine washable on a delicate cycle, is anti-pill and odour resistant. 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 50% Merino, 40% Possum and 10% Silk.
Approximate dimensions: 120cm X 15cm.
