Introducing PossumSilk, the first new naturalfiber for 100 years!

PossumSilk is a unique new natural fiberblend of 50% ultra-fine merino lambswool, 40%luxurious possum fur, and 10% silk. The threefibers combine strength, light weight, and naturalwarmth to give you unsurpassed luxury and comfortin a garment.

New Zealand Merino Wool is amongst thebest in the world. Superfine, super soft, fabulousagainst your skin. Wool draws moisture away fromthe body, keeping you warm ( even when wet), dryand odourless. Wool acts as an insulator, keepingyou warm in winter and cool in summer. It is anaturally elastic fiber that bounces back whenstretched.

Possum fur has a unique hollow structurewhich makes it incredibly lightweight, coupled withunequalled warmth and high resistance topilling.

Most worldwide conservation groups support theeradication of the Possum, as it is an alienspecies threatening a number of native species. TheBrushtail Possum was introduced into New Zealand inthe 1800s, and unfortunately has wreaked havoc,killing or eating our native forest, birds, andinsects. In particular it is a major threat to thesurvival of our Kiwi bird, which is facingextinction.

Possum fur is considered to be the world'sonly environmentally friendly fur. Your purchase ofa Merino PossumSilk garment will give you years ofpleasure, coupled with the knowledge that you arehelping to protect New Zealand's ecosystem.

Hi, Received my lovely slippers today and I am very happy love the colour. My current NZ slippers are just worn out after many years.
I am more than satisfied as I know my new pair will last a long time, I have bought my slippers from NZ for many years as I'm assured they will last as I wear them all the time inside and out.

Our shipment of NZ tea (Bell and Choysa) arrived today! We are thrilled the teas made it here despite the Covid19 pandemic! Thank you so much!
We are enjoying our first cups of these delicious teas and will enjoy many more in the days to come as we shelter at home in Washington State USA.
