New Zealand possum fur is a short to medium length (2-4cm) type fur, with a dense cushioned undercoat. New Zealand possum fur is completely different from the fur of the American Opossum
Possum fur doesn't shed like other furs and is anti-static.
It is strong, so you won’t be covered in hair every time you lean on your fabulous possum fur cushion, bed blanket or throw. New Zealand possum fur is considered durable so if it is well looked after and correctly cleaned and stored when not in use it can last for a life-time.
Possum fur is very warm; in fact it is reputed to be the third warmest fur in the world after polar bear and Arctic fox because of its hollow hair structure that traps warmth like a thermos. And just like polar bear hair, it is the hollow hair structure that does not allow possum fur to freeze, even when exposed to extreme cold. Possum fur is said to be 14% lighter and 8% warmer than wool.
