In a nutshell
280 km southeast of Auckland by road
Jumpers is a shop at Lake Taupo that carries a unique collection of quality knitwear for men and women. A popular choice is the hand-spun, hand-dyed and hand-knitted pure wool jumpers (sweaters) or 'wooly jumpers' as the Kiwis say. Other favorites are the high quality Merino 'mink' jumpers, scarfs, hats and gloves. These high quality Merino wool items are very soft and keep you warm without being to bulky.
Note: The 'mink' is not real mink fur, it is actually a luxurious blend of Merino wool, angora and possum fur. The possums in New Zealand have long fur and are not endangered, in fact they're a threat, having caused tremendous destruction to endangered native bush.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: We visited Lake Taupo around the middle of winter, and yet it was still fairly temperate. I had a good sized windshielding jacket and a pair of jeans. I would also recommend a beanie or something to keep your ears warm.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Readily available in this area.
