Fur Dressers & Dyers (Westland) Ltd
NZ-Possum fur is a soft yet robust Luxury Fur. Incredibly warm the fibers are hollow, which gives the fur excellent insulation properties to retain heat.
Possum/Merino knitwear is lightweight, very warm and can be easily washed
Our Possum knit blends are made up of fine Merino wool, Possum fiber and a small percentage of either Silk or Nylon added for strength
Possum fiber contains Natural Anti-bacterial components; meaning less need for laundering and no smells in footwear!
The Australian Brushtail Possum was first introduced to New Zealand in 1860. Now considered a pest in New Zealand; when you buy our Possum products you also support protection of our NZ Native Birds and Forests that are currently being devastated by the Possum
