Native World Knitwear

Native World knitwear of New Zealand make Possum Merino garments that are as soft as cashmere, warmer yet cost a whole lot less.

Stylish knitted fashion accessories made in New Zealand by Native World the brand name of MKM (Manawatu Knitting Mills) in a fabulous blend of eco possum fur, merino lambswool and silk.

The unique blend of Possum Merino  is as soft and luxurious as cashmere and is warmer than either pure wool or cashmere. The addition of Possum fur to the blend helps the body to retain heat and it wicks away moisture from the skin leaving you warm and cosy and at just the right temperature. Possum Fur is hollow, like Polar bear fur which helps to retain body heat and the addition of this to the wool blend means the items are silky soft and smooth and as this unique mixture has no scales (the fibre is long and silky) it means it's less likely to bobble, it will resist pilling and have outstanding durability which means your garments will stay better looking, be warmer and last much much longer.

Possum Merino is a blended fibre (and especially Possum Fur) often used in climates where comfort and durability is essential (Arctic and Antarctic expeditions for example) but where warmth and insulating against cold and severe winds can often mean the difference between life and death.

Possum Merino is super lightweight and a joy to wear and with the small addition of silk to the already luxurious blended fibre, it gives the items a delicate lustrous sheen (no they're not shiny) and makes you want to touch and feel them.
