Crew Neck Jumper
The crew neck jumper is a design classic, originally worn by oarsmen in the early twentieth century, but now a staple in any sophisticated man's wardrobe. This crew neck is made from luxurious possum merino, practical and extremely warm, but also stylish and smart. It can be dressed up for smart casual, but is durable enough to be worn everyday outdoors. It's warmth makes it an excellent choice for wearing under a jacket for hunting or fishing. Possum merino is extremely breathable, and when protected from wind, incredibly warm.
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.
