Tasmanian superfine merino wool top has been blended with fur from Tasmanian native/wild animals which have been harvested under permit from the Tasmanian Government. Monitored strictly, this cull is sustainably and humanely practiced. The fur fibre is a by-product which used to be thrown away. It is now a valuable export.When carded with the wool, the result is luxurious, super warm, silky soft and totally unique!
