Natural red brown is a beautiful rich natural opossum fur colour. This possum fur blanket has not been dyed or bleached so it is even more environmentally friendly.
Our possum furs blankets 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.
Each natural New Zealand possum fur pelt is unique but we colour match a set of furs to make into a beautiful bed throw for you.
This comes with a lovely velvet textured fabric backing which stops the throw from slipping off your bed.
The fabric backing is the closest match we can find to compliment the possum fur colour and is reddish brown.
These premium quality NZ possum fur throw blankets are made to order in New Zealand - allow 4-6 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.
