The Elka Blend: Possum Silk and Merino

elka blend using possum silk and merino fibres for sustainable knitwear

At Elka Knitwear, we pride ourselves on crafting the highest quality garments from the finest materials. That's why we use our signature blend of possum silk and merino in many of our designs. This unique blend is not only luxurious but also offers many benefits that set it apart from other materials.

Our possum silk and merino blend is incredibly soft and lightweight, making it a pleasure to wear. It's also highly breathable, which means that it will keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. This makes it an ideal choice for all seasons, proving that knitwear is not just for the winter months, and is a layering staple.

But what makes the Elka Blend truly special is its sustainability. Possums are an invasive species in New Zealand and have a devastating impact on the native flora and fauna. By using possum fur in our blend, we are helping to control their population and protect the environment. Additionally, the merino wool we use is sourced from ethical and sustainable farms in New Zealand.

Not only is our Elka Blend sustainable, but it's also incredibly durable. The possum silk fibers are hollow, which means they trap air and provide exceptional insulation. This insulation helps to regulate your body temperature, keeping you warm and dry in even the coldest and wettest conditions. Additionally, the blend is resistant to pilling, ensuring that your Elka Knitwear garments will look beautiful for years to come.

In conclusion, the Elka Blend of possum silk and merino is truly a luxurious and unique material. Its softness, breathability, sustainability, and durability make it a standout choice for those who value quality and style. At Elka Knitwear, we are proud to use this special blend in many of our designs, offering our customers the very best in comfort and luxury.
