Interesting Facts about Merino Possum:

The idea of blending Merino wool and possum fibres was first developed in 1992 by a New Zealand knitter. Merino Possum knitwear was developed as a by-product of the possum control program, making the Merino possum blend an environmentally sound choice. 

The possum fibre has a hollow core. The significance of this is two fold, firstly, the hollow core traps a tunnel of air that provides extra-ordinary warmth (up to 30% more than 100% wool garment).

The only other animal with a hollow core fibre is the Polar Bear. Secondly, the hollow core creates a fibre lighter than most other natural fibres. In practice by blending 40% possum fibre into the yarn you can reduce the overall weight of a garment by more than 20%.

Merino Possum yarn is highly resistant to pilling.

Therapeutic benefits. There is scientific evidence that an enzyme in the possum fibre helps combat skin conditions like athlete's foot and eczema.
