Benefits of Rambouillet Merino Wool
Exceptionally warm and surprisingly soft, Rambouillet Merino Wool has many benefits to take you from office to outdoors effortlessly.
Next to Skin Comfort
Our wool yarn is worsted, compacted and spun to remarkably fine diameter so it’s superfine, exceptionally soft 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.
Rambouillet Merino Wool is naturally bacterio-static meaning that it does not promote an environment for malodorous bacteria to form.
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.
Responsibly 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 5.5 oz. Jersey knits, Rib knits, French Terry and Woven fabrics.
We use a direct dye process that is water soluble. Our partners are responsible in how they treat their wastewater.
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:

Wash occasionally with a coarse fabric like denim, to avoid pilling
