Benefits of Rambouillet Merino Wool
Exceptionally warm and surprisingly soft, Rambouillet Merino Wool has many benefits to take you from office to outdoors effortlessly.
Long Lasting Comfort
Our wool yarn is worsted, compacted and spun to remarkably fine diameter so it’s superfine, exceptionally soft, durable and doesn’t itch.
Rambouillet Merino Wool buffers the elements for long-lasting comfort in warm, wet and cold weather.
Because Rambouillet Merino Wool is a natural fiber, sweat is transported away from your skin to keep you dry.
Unlike synthetic fibers, Rambouillet Merino Wool naturally resists bacteria and odor.
To make our worsted wool fabric, we use superfine, long staple fibers of Rambouillet Merino wool that are spun in parallel to create a tightly-knit, long-lasting worsted yarn, which feels soft, lightweight and itch-free. Our worsted wool yarn is knitted into fabrics without any polymers or other finishes. It is never superwashed for machine washability; instead, we treat our wool yarn using a natural enzyme in a non-chlorinated process for an unparalleled look and feel.
Ethically sourced and skillfully crafted for long-lasting comfort, this Ramblers Way Rambouillet Merino Wool garment is grown and sewn entirely in America. Here’s how it’s made:
The secret is in the breed: Rambouillet sheep, a cousin to Merino and prevalent in America’s West, grows a very fine, long-staple and durable fiber. Our Rambouillet Merino Wool is sourced from ethical ranchers in Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Nevada and Texas.
Surprisingly Soft Fabric
We start with superfine long-staple Rambouillet fibers spun parallel to each other to make our unparalleled worsted yarn. The spinning process produces a clean, smooth and tightly knit yarn that’s free of the usual fiber ends that cause you to itch from a typical woolen yarn. From here we use these worsted yarns to make our unique 4 and 5 ounce Jersey knits, Rib knits, French Terry and Woven fabrics.
We use a natural dye process to bring color to our Rambouillet Merino wool fabric. Our natural dyes comes from dried extracts of plants like indigo, red madder, osage, and logwood. The process requires hands-on, artisan care and results in unique colorfast clothing that’s both beautiful and easy on the environment.
100% Machine Washable + Lay Flat To Dry
We’ve made our garments easy to care for so you can be outside on the trail rather than inside doing laundry. Proper care will ensure years of wear. Hand washing or dry cleaning is not necessary unless otherwise indicated. For best results:
