The combining of possum fibre with merino wool was a bit inspired. Both share some characteristics - lightweight, quick drying, insulating, non-pilling, natural but they also complement each other. The possum is tremendously insulating, but the merino also wicks away moisture - so you shouldn't get overly hot and uncomfortable in a possum-merino garment.
Possum and merino fibres are combined with a little nylon for extra strength, espeically in socks. Sometimes the nylon is replaced by silk in some garments which is even a touch more luxurious, if that is possible.
YOu will rarely see lighter colours in possum-merino, as the lightest a fabric can be is governed by the nature of possum fibre, which is either natural brown or natural grey - not normally blonde and never white.

KiwiKate began with the insoles, and then came the socks. The garments followed. Careful - once worn, this fabric is completely moreish!
