I have just received a gift of a 60% Merino Wool and 40% Possum Fur hat and scarf. These can be found at The Tin Shed where there are hundreds of similar Kiwi items for sale (think sheep). The hat and scarf were manufactured by Weft Knitting Co Ltd (warning: not a real web site, full of Flash content).
Both items are a lovely snug and warm fit and are soft enough to be worn against bare skin. If previous purchases are anything to go by, these will last for years to come.
