What puts the 'awesome' in Possum?
Pearly’s are made with possum fur and merino wool yarn. Possum fur has a hollow hair structure that traps warmth and doesn’t freeze. It’s the third warmest fur after Polar Bear and Arctic Fox. Thus, the perfect warm and cozy result. Combined with merino wool you get the ultimate in lightweight warmth from this yarn.
Possum fibers combined with Merino wool have other great qualities. Here is a partial list:
- Natural anti-bacterial component that stop sweat from smelling
- Low-pill (little knots of thread)
- Fabulously soft
- Therapeutic benefits; there is scientific evidence that an enzyme in the possum fur helps combat skin conditions like athlete’s foot and eczema*
- No shedding
- 50% warmer than merino wool by itself
Pearly’s package paper, packaging and socks are all manufactured on the north island of New Zealand. The area known for its textile industry.
To really appreciate how special Pearly’s Possum Socks are you have to put them on your feet. Once people put them on they want to wear them everyday!
