These premium quality possum fur throws are made to order - allow 8-12 weeks. Our possum furs 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.

Bright red is a fun and happy dyed fur colour. This possum fur has been dyed so protect from bright or direct UV sunlight to prevent fading and colour change over time.  Each pelt is unique but we colour match a set to make into a beautiful bed throw for you. You can still see the subtle fluctuations of darker colour caused by the black guard hairs that run down the middle of each skin even though it is dyed red.

This red fur blanket comes with a lovely velvet textured fabric backing which stops the throw from slipping off your bed. The fabric backing can be dark red velvet or black velvetor any other colour of your choice.

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.

Real customer testimonials

Thank you also for making all of my visits to your store such easy and enjoyable ones! I am loving all of my purchases (rugs etc) and my kids (myself included) are enjoying the possum fur. It drapes the family couch and never stays put as my kids love to snuggle in it, even at this time of the year!! I was a bit nervous about having it on the couch all the time (dirt, kids etc..) but it is one of the easiest, fuss free pieces in our lounge. It doesn't crease and is exceptionally easy to spot clean!! and the calf skin underside is divine, well worth the extra in price. I will most definitely be back some time in the future and look forward to the new launch! Sharleen - Auckland - New Zealand

Hi Kirsty, Thank you for your efforts. The possum skin is exactly as we wanted, and you are quite right, the colour of it changes dramatically in the light. We appreciate greatly the trouble you went to, not only in obtaining exactly what we were after, but in getting our possum fur ready under time pressure for transport to Hong Kong. Your expertise, enthusiasm and dedication to the business should be commended, and we will not hesitate to recommend this business to prospective clients in the future. Regards Andrew and Melike - Hong Kong.
