    A classic garment

    Beautiful practical warm easy to wear. A garment you can wear with jeans and boots. Lovely to dress up or down, very warm without bulk. Expect it to be a staple garment for winter wear.

    Think this is my favourite!

    YES, pockets!! Very happy with colour and style of this jacket. May be a little scratchy for some people but it is my new favourite. Would like to see pockets in more garments.

    Love it, but wish it was available in XS

    This is a warm and well-made jacket. I can see myself wearing it for a long time with good care. Unfortunately, it's a bit big/loose, and will lose warmth to draft from the bottom, as it was not available in XS, so I ordered a S. Should an XS become available soon, I would quite gladly exchange for a better fit!

    Eco Possum Wool Jacket

    Lovely warm jacket. My second in this style. Only problem with the last one was pilling. It lasted 3 years of constant wear before it stated looking a bit shabby.

    Great cardy/jacket

    I found this jacket a bit harsher than other merino possum wool knits that I have. But to counteract that, I decided to soak it in a wool conditioner for half hour or so, to see if that would soften it, which it did. I was also able to stretch it out a bit as was a bit short and this gave it a bit more length plus it was more fitting. Now it is perfect. Really warm and looks great and I love it. Would buy another. I gave this 4 stars rather than 5 as it needed a bit of tender loving care before first wear.

    Super warm with pockets

    This is the perfect cardi for me. Pockets, nice fit (medium 12-14) Sleeves are the perfect length - mostly I have to roll the cuff on cardis but this one is great. The navy is attractive. Test drove it in icy temps and it was the perfect layer under a jacket. This is not the super light super soft possum but a bit sturdier. I’ll probably buy another. Did I mention pockets? Can’t live without them.

Features of the Eco Possum Wool Jacket

  • Eco blend composition - 60% Recycled possum & wool, 25% Natural fibres (wool/silk/angora), 15% Nylon (for strength)
  • Proudly made in Palmerston North, New Zealand

Eco blend is a MKM innovation that builds on the environmentally friendly and sustainable properties of woolen garments. When yarn is spun 'fibre fluff' is produced which was ordinarily discarded. This fibre has been collected and re-spun to create an entirely new yarn that's warm, soft and tough. Note; content varies due to the source fibre originally being spun.

Why choose Possum Merino garments?

Hollow corepossum fibre – traps a tunnel of air providing up to 55% more warmth than a 100% wool garment. Blending possum fibre with superfinemerino reduces the overall weight of a garment by up to 20%. Both possum and merino fibres have a complex cuticle, absorbing and expelling moisture vapour from both the external environment and the body microclimate in changing conditions, making the blend an ideal mix for insulating the body and maintaining core temperature. This blend is also highly resistant to pilling, and a much lower, if any, irritability factor as anyone who owns one of these durable garments can confirm.

Choosing Eco Luxury Fur helps save New Zealand plants and wildlife

New Zealand is the only place in the world that the fibre can be harvested so it remains extremely scarce on a global basis, making it the pink diamond of the eco-luxury fur world. Your choice helps drive demand for possum fibre, reducing the numbers of a pest that has a severe negative effect on native New Zealand flora and fauna, making your choice environmentally sound.

Introduced from Australia by early settlers, the numbers of brushtail possums multiplied exponentially in their non-native environment in the ideal climate with abundant food and no natural predators. Hand-gathering the fur is environmentally friendly and doesn't further endanger New Zealand's native wild life.
