PURE VIRGIN WOOL
Fabric, Weave, Weight: Medium weight, pure virgin wool, 13 oz/yd (ivory, sand, indigo, or black) or 6oz/yd (camel)
About: Pendleton wool sourced from American raised sheep, made in the Pacific Northwest. We've chosen a virgin wool meaning the wool fiber has never been previously spun or woven into fabric. Pendleton never uses recycled wool because many of the desirable qualities are lost in the process.
Wool is an extremely multi-faceted fiber - easy to care for, comfortable year round, a beautiful hand, and lasting durability. The elasticity in wool makes it naturally wrinkle resistant and great for holding shape. Wool is a natural insulator that allows skin to breathe, keeping one cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Colors are deep, rich, and lasting - the hollow fiber of wool allowing deep absorption for zero-fade.
This season, we're offering a medium weight wool - heavy but not too heavy. With a resistance to water, stains, and fire, this pure virgin wool is a lasting addition.
Note - our camel wool now differs from the other wools. Camel wool is a 6oz wool gauze from Japan, softer than the other wools, and with a looser weave and lighter weight. This wool is slightly sheer and less dense than the other wool options.

Care: Dry clean, spot clean, or hand wash. Wool is naturally resistant to stains and dirt, wash sparingly. If you prefer to hand wash, use a mild, all natural soap. We recommend Eucalan and lukewarm water. Submerge the wool and soak for 3-5 minutes. Squeeze excess water gently out of garment - do not wring or twist. Lay flat on clean towels to dry.
