Colin Cox was involved in the very beginnings of deer farming in New Zealand and with the development of possum fibre for use in clothing. He's written a memoir which Country Life has turned into a series. Today Colin learns possum fur's hollow fibre is very similar to that of a polar bear, so he puts its insulating properties to the test.
