This beautiful block loop scarf in multiple colour-ways is a stylish yet casual choice that will become your go-to accessory whenever you leave the house. It's easily scrunched up in your bag when you don't need it - and because it's possum merino, it won't hold any creases. A miracle!
What will surprise you is how light this scarf is - and yet how warm. That's because its knitted from this beautiful New Zealand possum merino blend.
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 of 70% Merino, 20% Possum and 10% Nylon.
