About Possum fur:
The possum fibre has a hollow core. The significance of this is twofold, firstly, the hollow core traps a tunnel of air that provides extraordinary 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.
Moisture vapour transmission - Both possum and Merino fibres have a complex as the cuticle. Merino Possum fabric will absorb and expel moisture vapour from the external environment or the body microclimate in changing conditions.
