New Zealand Possum-Wooly Reversible Headband
Keep them all guessing which way you’re going to wear it today, this thick furry soft New Zealand-made “reversible” headband. Like our other NZ woolies, it’s blend of Merino wool, Australian Possum wool, and nylon, for strength in the outback, mate.
Since it’s reversible, it’s exactly like getting two for the price of one.
UGLY STORY BEHIND THIS REVERSIBLE HEADBAND
Every night, imported and now invasive Australian opposums eat 20 tons of native New Zealand forest, and gobble up flightless birds and bird eggs as they go. The NZ gov’t and people in general are sick of it but used to it. It’s amazing that the whole country doesn’t look like a golf course. The possums multiply fast and have no predators. Ugly scene, fascinating but no fun to talk about, but sometimes you just need to know.
As a way to kill off the bad possums, the NZ gov’t encourages and helps subsidizes businesses that make things out of possum wool. These NW Woolies (a blend of merino, possum, and nylon (“for strength”) came of that plan, and us importing them and you buying them greases the skids.
