The humble Possum Fur and Merino Wool Beanie Hat (often referred to as the 'Ray Mears Beanie') has fast become a firm favourite among Woodloreans the world over. Thanks to its incredible warmth, breathability and luxurious softness, this winter hat has proven to be one of our best sellers, year after year.

Created from a special blend of fine merino wool and insulating possum fur, this double-thickness beanie provides a superb amount of warmth while remaining extremely light in weight. The idea of blending these two natural fibres was first developed by a New Zealand knitter as a by-product of the possum control programme, making the merino/possum blend an environmentally sound choice.

Possum fur is one of the most extraordinary natural fibres in the world, thanks to its hollow core; this cavity traps a tunnel of air that provides extraordinary warmth (up to 30% more than standard woollen garments), while keeping the fibre's weight to a minimum. As a sign of how effective this feature is, the only other animal with a hollow core fibre is the polar bear.

Merino wool also has unique characteristics; each fibre is exceptionally fine, long and densely crimped, helping to retain heat close to the skin while keeping out cold air. The fibre also wicks moisture away from the skin, allowing the wool to stay warm and dry. The combination of merino wool with possum fur results in a fabric that is lightweight, twice as warm as wool, highly resistant to pilling and opulently soft to the touch.

  I spent weeks at the beginning of the year looking for my Merino wool Possum fur hat in my favourite colour. I have 3. I looked everywhere only to find my wife had pinched it. She said it was the only hat that didn't ride up and not cover her ears. Being a nice sort of guy I've bought her one of her own and not in a colour I already have. I've got my favourite hat back and the wife has warm ears. Win Win.

  Probably the best woolly hat I’ve ever used. Soft, warm and very comfortable. The double layer keeps the wind at bay as well. Highly recommended if you want keep warm whatever the weather.

  Prompt delivery of hat. Worn it extensively during recent cold spell, it pretty much does everything you would hope it would. Being bald, I found the hat to be both comfortable to wear and kept my follicly challenged head very toasty. Has quickly become my go to winter headwear. I strongly recommend this product.

  Bought for my wife to stop her stealing mine. Excellent hats that are incredibly warm yet lightweight & packable. Very quick delivery too.

  Great product. Very minimal with no branding, super soft and very warm. It details wool that doesn't itch. The only thing I would say is that if you have a large head, you will probably need to roll the sides down to cover your ears.

  Excellent piece of kit. I had already bought a Possum fur and Merino Wool Beanie Hat beanie hat which my wife decide she would wear when walking our dog. Of course I had to get another hat and there really was no other choice but to purchase another one for all round comfort and warmth. Thank you.
