Do You Know Your Wool?

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Ramblers Way. All opinions are 100% mine.


The word Wool has always made not just think itchy, but actually makes me start to feel itchy. And yes, I know that maybe I am not giving wool a chance-- but I am stubborn that way. So obviously I have spent the majority of my shopping days avoiding clothing made from wool. But I may have to rethink my notions about wool after all, and reconsider my heretofore objections to it.

I checked out an online store today, Ramblers Way, and was very impressed by what I learned about wool from this family-owned business.

Ramblers Way Farm is a family business creating soft, comfortable next-to-skin worsted wool apparel entirely on American soil. They partner with Rambouillet sheep farmers only in America, and create worsted wool from natural, renewable fibers that are durable and non-toxic. They have set out to help people (like me) to re-imagine wool as a next-to-skin, superfine fabric, to warm and comfort people of all ages and walks of life. Reading through their site, I learned that wool is a complex fiber which provides superior insulation, water repellency, water absorption and odor control. And I was impressed to learn that Wool naturally resists wrinkling and soiling. And very important- wool is flame resistant.

The natural, non-synthetic wool clothing line from Ramblers Way is wearable all year long as they warm and to cool equally (I always thought hot too when I used to think of wool!) Their wool is enzyme-treated for shrinkage and is fully washable, and their clothing is chemical free.

I have to admit that I am re-thinking my ideas of wool, and am very interested to check out what it feels like, which I will be able to do since Ramblers Way offers to send out a free sample to anyone who would like one! But What I really like about this company is their commitment to safeguarding, improving and respecting our environment. This statement from their website says it all:

"We believe that our relationship with nature encompasses all we do, and keeps us grounded and humble.
