Fur and Skin prices

Posted by Russell Dalzell on June 30, 2014 | Posted under Fur, Possum Fur Merino Wool, Possum Pam, Possum Skin
With the grip of winter on us now it shouldn't be too long before the new seasons best skins start coming in. I think this year the price of fur will hover around the $110 per kilo mark and skin prices will drop back slightly. With supply outstripping demand at the moment it is important that we keep encouraging our hunters to get out there and harvest.

Natural Grey verses Natural Brown

Posted by Russell Dalzell on January 20, 2014
Seems to be a trend lately that the Natural Grey possum is coming back into favour over the Natural Brown. Back in the eighties the Grey was much preferred over the Brown but more recently the Brown has been preferred. With the Grey now popular again it may finally reflect that the Brown is a harder colour to match to.

Possum Fur is so Warm

Posted by Rhondda Sweetman on September 08, 2013

Possum Fur is 55% warmer than merino wool and a yarn made of possum fur and merino wool is 35% warmer than Cashmere.  This is the  reason why our customers love these products.  Possum Fur fibers are hollow, thus providing excellent insulation properties.  It is a luxurious fur and looks stunning as a rug on the floor or a bedspread.

About Possumdown

Posted by Rhondda Sweetman on November 19, 2011 | Posted under Possum Fur Merino Wool

Possumdown Qualities and Attributes
For over 100 years the world had not seen a new natural fibre blend until 1991 when Possumdown Knitwear developed a blend of hand selected Possum fur and superfine Merino wool. Since then a whole new industry segment has begun with this fibre blend that is unique to New Zealand.

True to the original process Possumdown yarn is made from carefully hand selected Possum fur for quality and length which means that the structure and attributes of the fur remain intact.

Possumdown yarn is made from two of nature's finest fibres... Possum fur and superfine New Zealand Merino wool. The unique property of Possum fur is that each fibre is hollow. This gives excellent insulation qualities ensuring that Possumdown garments are lighter compared to most other heavier knitted items.

As well as incredible softness and warmth Possumdown yarn is strong and durable. Possum fur is 16 to 17 micron (very fine) and when blended with fine Merino wool ensures a luxurious and soft handle to the fabric. Rigorous tests have proven that Possumdown wears better than most Cashmere and Merino wool clothing and has superior anti-pilling qualities.

Through our long term relationship and discerning selection of supply partners we manage the entire process so you can have total confidence the garments you purchase come through a reputable supply chain.

Each night the 70-90 million Possums in New Zealand eat their way through 22000 tones of native forest. Your purchase of a Possumdown garment means that you have not only acquired a truly unique garment but also contributed to the preservation of our native forests.
