Possum and Merino Socks - Espresso

by Nooan
Sold out

Let me tell you about the materials that make up this lush pair of socks; Possum is 50% warmer than merino, and 35% warmer than cashmere! Perfect for this winter weather. The possum fibre is made by the last mill in Aotearoa, who is also contracted by luxury brands like Hermes for their well known craftmanship, and of course that it is ethically sourced (from conservation programs run by New Zealand Department of Conservation) and tracebale.  The merino used is 'ZQ' which is a certified sustainable, ethical and tracable brand that focuses on animal welfare by adhering to five basic freedoms for healthy sheep: They are hydrated, live naturally, without discomfort, without stress and without disease). ZQ is also known to be the most luxurious, light and soft merino on the market.

Now let's talk about the function! Functional Possum merino yarn has the ability to control temperature & humidity. This means you will be able to exercise for longer & more comfortably in both summer & winter. It also keeps you fresh, by absorbing odour molecules. Typically Possum fiber is not known for durability but Nooan have invested years of development to make these socks durable for extended wear.

Oh, and made in Aotearoa. Can you ask for any better??
