Our Story

Dear Friends,

Thank you for visiting Ramblers Way Farm. Our story begins with our family, and a passion for creating superior products for a sustainable lifestyle.

In 1970, we founded Tom’s of Maine as one of the first makers of natural personal care products. After nearly 40 years of experience in building Tom’s into a leading eco-friendly company, we have learned a lot about how a business can be a positive force for its consumers, workers, communities, and the planet.  

We started Ramblers Way with a desire to re-imagine wool as a next-to-skin, superfine fabric, to warm and comfort people of all ages and walks of life. Just as importantly, we sought to create a company and products that exemplify the values and beliefs which we hold dear.

We create superfine worsted wool garments, while maintaining high standards of ecological responsibility, community involvement, and customer satisfaction.

We’ve created a company that pays homage to America’s rich history as a textile producer, while breathing new life into the domestic wool industry, through our collaboration with farmers and producers around the country.

Joining us on our journey are new generations of the Chappell Family and like-minded partners across the United States. We like to think that we wear our values on our sleeves—and we wouldn’t have it any other way!  

We hope you enjoy learning about Ramblers Way, and wish you comfort and warmth!

Thanks for visiting,

Tom and Kate Chappell, Co-founders
