Size: Black Double Blanket 180x160cm

This beautiful black possum fur blanket is made from glossy premium jet black dyed NZ possum fur pelts.

This black New Zealand possum fur blanket comes with a lovely velvet textured fabric backing which stops the possum throw blanket from slipping off your bed.

The fabric backing is normally a black velvet type fabric. Or choose a different colour to suit your interior style. We have made these black blankets with red or old gold fabric on the back in the past to our customers specification, and they looked incredible. Ask us about options.

This dyed possum fur need to be protected from direct or bright sunlight to prevent fading over long period of time. The sun fades all furnishings.

These premium quality NZ possum fur throw blankets are made to order in New Zealand - allow 6-8 weeks.

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.
