Beautiful, luxurious and durable. Just some of the attributes of these lovely gloves. Buy one pair and we are fairly sure that you will come back for a second!.
The possum fibre has a hollow core. The significance of this is two fold, firstly, the hollow core traps a tunnel of air that provides extra-ordinary warmth (up to 30% more than 100% wool garment).
The only other animal with a hollow core fibre is the polar bear. Secondly, the hollow core creates a fibre lighter than most other natural fibres. By blending 40% possum fibre into the yarn you can reduce the overall weight of a garment by more than 20%.
Further, possum fur minimises the pilling (or 'balling') associated with prolonged use of woollen garments - and it exudes an enzyme known to help certain skin disorders. I have had very dry skin and eczema all my life, but find that I can wear these gloves without any itchiness.
