Possum Fur earmuffs on an elastic band – the elastic means one size fits all. Often seen in Queenstown and other ski resorts, this is a very popular product in New Zealand winters! Stylish as well as fun. Fur on both sides of the muff, so fur is always against your skin.
Also acts as a hair-band for people with long hair.
This quality product will last for years and keep you warm. Possum fur has a hollow core, resulting in natural double glazing. Incredibly light for the warmth it produces - in fact only the polar bear has warmer fur for it's weight. Unlike polar bear fur, possum fur is one of the only remaining 'guilt-free' furs in the world. Possums were introduced to New Zealand in 1837 from Australia and their population exploded, feeding on New Zealand native forests and wildlife in the absence of any natural predators.
Every year the government spends millions of dollars trying to keep possum numbers down and limit their damage. Your purchase of this product supports New Zealand’s conservation effort.
All possum fur used has been treated and is fine for export. Made in New Zealand.
