  • New Zealand Possums
    New Zealand Possum

    The Australian possum, a small arboreal marsupial, was introduced to New Zealand by European settlers in the late 1800's. Possums soon escaped and, with no natural predators, quickly multiplied to their peak population of around 80 million. The possums cause enormous ecological damage to plant and bird life in the native forests, threatening survival of native species including the kiwi. Humane harvesting of possums for their fur is one part of New Zealand's efforts to eradicate the Australian possum and preserve native environments. The possum population is now around 30 million, or about 7 possums for each New Zealander.

    The smooth fibres of possum fur have hollow cores and soft pointed ends. Possum fur blended with Merino wool and nylon for strength gives a luxurious yarn that is extremely lightweight and soft. The yarn wears well, is easy to care for and resists pilling.
