Did You Know?

    •  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
    •  We have a World-wide customer base, there are no International Custom restrictions on any of our  Knitwear or Furs
    •  There is NO farming of Possum in NZ. 
    • We purchase our Possum hides and fur from Local NZ Trappers & Hunters, North and South Islands. 
    • Our Hokitika, West Coast NZ address is an operating Workroom and Retail outlet in one. We welcome visitors and are happy to show our work and answer questions.
    • From very small beginnings in 1969;  We know our stuff and are proud to say we are  'The Possum People'  Hokitika, New Zealand.
