Possum Scarves. Made from one full possum skin. The skin has been sewn to produce a finish where no skin is visible and fur is on all sides of the scarf - meaning the fur is against your skin at all times. Hook and eye are sewn in to fasten the scarf.
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.
