Possum Fur and Merino Wool Clothing & Accessories
The new 2012/13 range of Merinomink Possum Fur and Merino Wool Clothing & Accessories for both men and women is now available.
Merinomink is an exclusive blend of fine Merino wool, luxurious Brushtail Possum fibre and silk.
Superior Design and Quality. All Merinomink garments are individually and exclusively produced in New Zealand to the most exacting
global quality standards. Each garment is unique and original, created by the outstanding Merinomink design team.
Comfort. The Brushtail Possum fibre is rare in having a hollow structure; air is trapped both within the fibre and in the fabric
when blended with high crimp, fine Merino. This creates a soft, lightweight and incredibly warm garment, simply a dream to wear.
Long Lasting. Merinomink garments have very high performance and durability characteristics due to the unique structure of
the Brushtail Possum fibre. The fibre itself has no scales, so it resists pilling, keeping your garments looking fantastic for longer.
Easy Care. The natural fibres of the Merinomink blend resist odour to keep you fresher for longer. Merinomink also requires
less washing, making it easier on you and the environment.
Good for the Environment. The introduced Brushtail Possum is New Zealand's biggest ecological threat. Brushtail Possums occupy 95%
of New Zealand, with an estimated population of 60 million. By utilising Brushtail Possum fur, Merinomink is contributing to a reduction in the use
of broadcast poisons and to the effort to protect our native forests and birds.
Unequalled Warmth. The brushtail possum fibre in Merinomink has unique hollow structure. This gives the possum fibre a very
high warmth to weight ration, creating a warm comfortable garment with bulk. In comparison to cashmere, wool and angora, possum fibre is the lightest
yet remains the best insulator.
