Drawing inspiration from the famous striped scarves of English universities and colleges, this long vertical striped scarf is colourful and flattering - and since it's made from beautiful New Zealand possum merino, it'll be one of the warmest scarves you've ever owned.
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 40% Possum, 50% Merino and 10% Nylon.
Approximate dimensions: 170cm x 22cm.
