pos.sei.mo produces among the labels pos∙sei∙mo New Zealand Knitwear and Summit by pos∙sei∙mo unique and exclusive fashion with a fantastic feel on the skin. We only use finest natural fibers from New Zealand such as merino wool, cashmere, and possum hair for our knitwear.
The merino wool holds the ecological certificate ZQ-Merino. This certificate stands for animal-friendly keeping of merino sheep and mulesing-free production of wool. In the land of wide, green, and lush meadows, not only sheep but also cashmere goats find excellent living conditions. Their fine hair is lighter, longer and shinier than cashmere hair from Asia. The possum hair comes from the brushtail possum, an animal that is not native to New Zealand and has no natural predators there. To keep the flora and fauna in balance, the possums are hunted, and their hair is used to make yarn.
These special natural materials are spun into different yarn blends directly in New Zealand and define our two labels pos∙sei∙mo New Zealand Knitwear and Summit by pos∙sei∙mo.
Merino Wool (50%) - Possum Hair (40%) - Silk (20%)
pos∙sei∙mo New Zealand Knitwear is made up of high-quality merino wool, exquisite possum hair and fine silk.
Merino Wool (85%) – Cashmere (15%)
Cashmere (40%) – Possum Hair (40%) – Silk (20%)
Summit by pos∙sei∙mo stands for the summit of luxury fibers. The New Zealand cashmere forms the leading component in the harmony of the yarn blends. In this way, products are created from a mixture of high-quality merino wool mixed with noble cashmere. The gentle hair of the cashmere goat is also combined with exquisite possum hair and fine silk to form a balanced triad of precious fibers. And for lovers of purity - we are producing exclusive knitwear from 100% cashmere too.
The different blends highlight the individual properties of each natural fiber in its own character. The fine textures of the natural fibers impress with its gentleness, extreme lightness and become a luxury product of highest quality.
The timeless design combines functional well-being with elegance. Clear and simple cuts are combined with special attention to details such as fancy knitting patterns, buttons or pockets. Whether it is a coat, sweater, cape, poncho or shrug - our fashion is versatile and fits every occasion. The Shrug, our favorite piece for women, emphasizes the feminine silhouette and is also suitable for cool summer evenings. The soft men's sweaters give the classic, strict business look a stylish ease. With our accessories such as hats, headbands, scarves and gloves, you will always look stunning in winter.
The softness of the material separates it from traditional wool and turns it into very special clothing: the merino wool and cashmere is permeable to air and breathable and does heat the body in cold environments and cools in the heat. In addition to the heat-regulating property, they can absorb a third of their own weight in moisture and neutralize odors. The possum hair is a very fine hollow fibre. This natural air cushion inside the fibre insulates and warms the wearer at a very low weight. Furthermore, the possum hair reduces the formation of nodules, which can be caused by friction during wear. Thus the nodule formation remains in the range of the natural low-pilling effect. The addition of pure silk allows the product to maintain its shape and elasticity. With our featherlight fibre blend we create a warm luxury knitwear made of 100% natural materials, which seduces the senses through its softness.
