Stylish, classic, elegant - and edged with the pure luxury of guilt-free possum fur. This handsoe fur trimmed hat combines the warmth and lightness of possum merino with the glittering elegance of fur trim to create a simple yet elegant hat that looks equally at home at the opera or shopping in the city. It's a hat that is guaranteed to turn heads, harking back to the Hollywood film star looks of the 1930s, but made in a luxury fibre that Marilyn Monroe could only have imagined.
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 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.
