Regularly brush your possum fur gently with a metal bristle comb to keep it untangled
Iron the fur with brown paper between fur and iron to give the fur lift and shine (also lightly brush the fur surface with a mix of petrol and water to give the fur renewed shine - yes I know this sounds crazy but just use a tiny amount - a furrier told me this!)
Store fur in a cool dry place away from sunlight - if possible avoid humidity, heat and sunlight
Do not put your possum fur throw/blanket into a plastic bag; it needs to be able to breathe. Instead use a loose weave cotton bag with plenty of room to move or wrap your fur throw loosely in an old but clean cotton sheet
Do not use those plastic storage bags that you suck the air out with a vacuum cleaner – they will crush the fur and leather & suffocate the fur making it sweat
Do not store in a cupboard with mothballs – the fur and leather may absorb the smell and this smell will be very hard to remove
Do not allow the leather under the fur to get wet – so make sure the storage location is away from all possible leaks & moisture
Do not put other objects on top of the stored fur – remember we are trying to keep air circulation at all times
Store away from kitchens or other activities that create smells that can absorb into the fur over time
When the fur throw or blanket comes out of storage give it a good vigorous shake to fluff up the fur and if needed air it out in fresh air but avoid direct sunlight

I just received my two blankets, everything is prefect. Arrived very quickly. I'm so in love with them. They are so wonderful, wish I had ordered them sooner.

The fabulous possum throw is here and it’s even more fabulous than I imagined. What’s even better is that it contains the love & best wishes of family & friends. It took the hassle out of thinking what to get for a big birthday present.

I found an amazing ottoman in one of Sydney's chicest furniture stores, however the price was horrifying. I found Gorgeous Creatures online. The resulting Cowhide Ottoman is far better and at about 1/3 of the price.
