Tom's of Maine founders Tom and Kate Chappell have recently undertaken a new project, Rambler's Way, an ecologically friendly and sustainable clothing company which creates high quality wool based garments. The company uses wool gathered from USA based farms located in Maine, Montana, Nevada, Texas, and the Dakotas. Sheep flocks are carefully monitored for health and allowed to graze in pastures. Wool is carefully sheered using gentle, humane techniques. You can read more about Ramblers Way's animal policy here.
In addition to their careful handling of sheep, Ramblers Way takes great measures to ensure that their products are constructed for comfort. In order to make their clothing super soft and light-weight, Ramblers Way uses a "WINDspun" technology. The resulting wool isn't scratchy or thick like the wool garments of past, but are instead light, smooth and breathable. Despite the clothing being light-weight, in the classic fashion of wool, it still keeps you nice and toasty! One other major benefit of Ramblers Way clothing is that a unique enzyme treatment is used to prevent clothes from shrinking. In other words, although they are made of wool, Ramblers Way garments can be freely machine washed.
Ramblers Way is committed to producing the safest and most sustainable clothing so each garment is made chemical free, all natural and fully constructed in the USA.
