In 1992, Merinomink™’s parent company Snowy Peak Limited pioneered the use of the Brushtail Possum eco fur blended with fine merino wool and other luxury fibres, and following deep research they launched Merinomink™ on the market in 1996. Since that date, the technique has been perfected in the Merinomink™ yarns and collections to the gorgeous products we have today.
So why choose Possum products? Merinomink™ products are beautiful, light, soft, durable and incredibly warm. They are unique to New Zealand, look great and are the lightest, warmest natural fibres on the planet. The hollow fibres of the Possum fur is the key to their extreme warmth and the garments are luxurious to wear, anti-static and non-pilling.
The range of clothing by Merinomink™ caters for men and women and also boasts a range of matching accessories. The collections have been designed to be versatile – able to be worn during the day as well as into the evening. Colours range from earthy tones through to vibrant oranges, blues and pinks which are perfect for après sport and weekend activities. With an understated style and undeniable edge, the Merinomink™ range of clothing is the perfect New Zealand made choice in knitwear.
