Possum Merino Socks : Black
Soft and luxurious, these possum merino socks are a beautifully warm natural fibre sock.
At 70grams in plain knit construction, they are thick, but not too bulky to wear with street shoes.
Made from 40% possum fur and 50% Tasmanian merino for warmth and softness, with 10% nylon for strength and durability.
Possum fibre has a unique hollow structure which gives it an extremely high warmth to weight ratio - soft, warm and comfortable without the bulk.
While we love our possums in Australia, in New Zealand they are a serious threat to the natural environment. NZ forests does not have the defences to survive possums, and with no predators, every night an estimated 90 million of them ravage 22,000 tonnes of native vegetation. By buying a possum fur product, you enjoy the luxurious fibre that is possum fur and help fix a devastating ecological threat.
One size only : Women's small = AU 2-8 (EU 35-38)
