What is Opossum World?
Possums were originally introduced into New Zealand as an invasive species from Australia in the mid-1800s. The Possums in New Zealand eat tonnes of forests and natural habitation every single night. Because of this, conservation groups actively encourage the commercial use of Possum fur fibre to help get rid of this pest and play a role in the protection of New Zealand’s native flora and fauna species. Any visitors of Opossum World that buy any products are also playing their part in saving New Zealand’s natural habitat.
Our purely New Zealand Possum fur and fine Merino wool blend is beautiful and soft to the touch and is the ultimate in luxury when used to create fashion wear garments. The blend combines lightness and cosiness, with softness and luxury. It is the ultimate in luxury when woven into contemporary and classic clothing, ideal for all occasions!
