Merinomink™ Garments are a blend of fine Merino and luxurious Possum Fur. They are 100% natural fibres and should be handwashed to help maintain their superb natural loft and warmth. While Merinomink™ garments require less washing because they resist odour (making it easier on you and the environment) we do recommend washing your Meinomink™ garments on a regular basis to help keep them at their best. Merinomink™ garments are manufactured to a very high colour fastness to minimise the risk of colour bleeding or fading, however it is recommended dark or brightly coloured garments are never washed with pale shades or whites. Proper care will give you a garment that will look good for years to come.
