Felted Hat - Merinomink
Felted is Flattering!
This Merinomink Felted Hat is made from an exclusive blend of fine Merino wool and luxurious possum fur. Merinomink is wonderfully soft to touch, prevents pilling (rubbing) and washes extremely well.
Because Merinomink is made with a combination of fine Merino wool and luxurious Possum fur, it also offers comfort and durability for year round fashion.
Each garment is made individually to exacting quality standards, from fur selection through to yarn development and finally garment construction.
The Brushtail possum is an animal introduced to New Zealand and is only found in Australia and New Zealand. In Australia the possum is a protected species (this should not be confused with the North American Opossum, which is a different animal), but in New Zealand they eat their way through 20,000 tonnes of native herbage each night, wreaking havoc on the natural environment.
Snowy Peak Ltd is committed to its vision to create a healthy, vital and dynamic future for this planet and its people through both its products and business activity. Each year they purchase very large amounts of possum fur, which produces significant funds for local communities through trapping programmes; provides jobs in areas suffering long-term unemployment, reduces adult possum numbers per annum, which in turn reduces the use of broadcast poisons, and contributes to the effort to protect native forest and birds.
