This stylish Merino Possum Check Cheesecutter Cap is part of the fabulous McDonald New Zealand Merino Possum Collection.  The Cheesecutter features a check pattern and a lambskin leather peak.
Available in two colourways and 3 sizes:
  •  Medium - approx 57.5cm (22 1/2") circumference
  • Large - approx 59.5cm (23 3/8")
  • XL - approx 61cm (24")
Merino Possum is a fabulous fibre from New Zealand. It is created from a blend of 50% ultra fine merino lambswool, 40% luxurious possum fur, and 10% nylon or silk (the company is transitioning from nylon to silk, so the fibre content is completely natural).
Ultrafine Merino wool is very warm and soft, and not itchy. Possum fur is warmer than wool due to the hollow core of the fur, trapping air inside the fibre. It also doesn't cause an itch. The mix gives strength, softness and incredible warmth.

Keep yourself warm this winter, and revel in the knowledge you are wearing a luxury garment from clean 'n green New Zealand. Possum Merino is an ecologically conscious choice - wearing this cap allows you to contribute towards a sustainable future for New Zealand's flora and fauna.
The Australian Brushtail Possum was introduced into New Zealand in the 1800s, with disastrous results. Throughout our country, an estimated population of 80 million possums destroys 22000 tonnes of our indigenous flora every night, not to mention all the native birds that it kills each night, including our endangered iconic kiwi bird. With no natural predators, there is no way to naturally control the species, hence the need to control numbers by hunting and trapping.

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.
