Brushtail Possum Gloves
Winter weather can be harsh, but when the digits drop yours don’t have to feel the chill. Made from a combination of New Zealand's brushtail possum fur, and New Zealand Merino lamb's wool, these Brushtail Possum gloves provide plenty of warmth when you need it most.
Our Brushtail Possum gloves are produced by combining the fur of New Zealand's brushtail possum and New Zealand Merino lamb's wool.
The hair of brushtail possum is hollow, just like Polar Bear hair, which provides incredible warmth and water resistant. While typical wool gloves may stay warm when wet, they take forever to dry. If you put these gloves in water, the water shakes right out and they dry quickly.
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.
Made in New Zealand.
These gloves are stretchy, but they run a bit small. They may shrink a bit if they are dried in a dryer. It is better to size up if on the line.
This item can be hand washed with warm water and soap or in a traditional washing machine.
The gloves should be line dried. Putting the gloves in a dryer may cause them to shrink a bit, but they do stretch back out.
The gloves are wormer then my sky gloves,, work great..Thanks.
Overall a great experience! This company has very fast shipping and these gloves are a quality item. Just today the temperature was about 30 degrees oh, I put the gloves on roll my windows down when I was on the highway my hands didn't get cold at all. I would recommend them to anybody!
Great gloves....soft and warm without being bulky.
Shipped immediately and arrived exactly as described. As noted, they run a little small, so size up accordingly. Very warm for such a light glove. Only negative for me is that they are a little fuzzy and get stuck on velcro really easily.
I purchased these gloves for my upcoming thru hike of the Appalachian Trail. During my previous thru hikes of the AT and PCT, I have had a very difficult time finding the right gloves. I am using this pair in conjunction with Zpacks Vertice Rain Mittens. This will allow me to be warm and dry during rain storms
