Our possum furs are tanned using a special technique, that means you can more easily spot clean or sponge wipe them if a spill happens, without anything bad happening. You cannot wash possum fur but you can dry-clean very successfully.
This New Zealand possum fur blanket comes with a lovely velvet textured fabric backing which stops the throw blanket from slipping off your bed.
The fabric backing is the closest match we can find to compliment the fur colour and is a dark chocolate coloured velvet.

New Zealand Possum fur is an incredibly silky soft, plush, warm, lightweight and luxurious natural product. In fact they say it is the third warmest fur in the world after polar bear and Arctic fox because of its hollow hair structure that traps warmth like a thermos.
And just like polar bear hair, it is the hallow hair structure that does not allow possum fur to freeze, even when exposed to extreme cold.
Possum fur is said to be 14% lighter and 8% warmer than wool. So we should all be curled up under a possum fur blanket keeping warm this winter.
New Zealand possum fur is considered durable so if it is well looked after and correctly cleaned and stored when not in use it can last up to 10 years or longer.
