PossumDown Bushman's Friend Socks


These socks are made from a combination of New Zealand brushtail possum fur, and New Zealand Merino lamb's wool. New Zealand's possums are unrelated to the opossums found in the United States. They are super cute, but they are also an invasive species that destroy the native plant and bird life. More details can be found at

What's so special about possum fur? Each hair is hollow, just like Polar Bear hair. It is incredibly warm and water resistant. Typical wool socks may stay warm when wet, but they take forever to dry. If you put these socks in water, the water shakes right out and they dry quickly.

These socks are very thick and warm! They are rugged enough to hike in on cold days, and they also make excellent sleep socks. They would be great for winter sports as well.

Don't forget to grab a matching pair of PossumDown Gloves!
