About Possum Merino Knitwear
Possum merino knitwear is a beautiful & unique product that is made in New Zealand.
The possum merino wool accessories are perfect as gifts, especially for overseas visitors but make sure you keep a set for yourself in your favourite colour.
Soft, fluffy & warm wool knitwear is always a welcome gift and with things like scarves, beanie hats, hand-warmers or wraps you don't need to worry about sizing.
So what makes possum merino knitwear so different?University research has shown that the hollow nature of the possum fur shaft has exceptional thermal properties. And when blended with merino wool garments are 55% warmer than pure 100% merino wool alone and 35% warmer than cashmere.
Our luxury possum wool blend is easier to wear, especially for people who find regular wool itchy.
We have a large range of possum merino wool knitwear accessories in stock and we can order in the men's or women's sweaters and jackets as needed. We are often cheaper than the tourist shops.
Working out the right size for you
Use one of your favourite sweaters or knit jackets to check against our sizing chart on each garment page.
Fold the sweater in half down the center middle placing sleeve flat to sleeve, then measure from the center of the neck (where the label is) on a diagonal line down the arm to the middle of the cuff edge.
Also measure with the jumper while open and flat from about 3cm down from where the arm meets the body from side to side.
There is a potentially a 2-3cm variation in sizing for knitwear due to the manufacturing process, basically it's not an exact science.

I have to tell you, I bought my first one 18 months ago whilst on our third holiday to your beautiful country. I wore it a lot last winter and it kept me SO WARM!

Would be great for work! Thank you, so much.... Jenny - NSW - Australia
