Bozeman, Mont. — Duckworth, the only single-source wool apparel company in the world that is growing, spinning, knitting, and sewing its garments 100 percent in the USA expands its award-winning natural and sustainable outerwear line with the introduction of the WoolCloud™ Full Zip Hoody and WoolCloud™ Vest.
WoolCloud™ is a lofty, lightweight insulation with exceptional breathability that regulates your core body temperature in all conditions. The high performance wool insulation was first featured in the WoolCloud™ Snap Shirt, which won the 2014 National Geographic Adventure Gear of the Year award.
To create WoolCloud™ insulation, Duckworth blends fine, lofty, short wool fibers with longer “structural” wool fibers. Duckworth links the fibers together with a natural vegetable derivative, holding the structure together in a “Helical 3D Matrix.” The vegetable polymer is imperceptible, so the wool remains airy, light, and soft, yet highly robust. It doesn’t clump and is washable. The end result is a lightweight, air-trapping insulation that has exceptional breathability, is grown in Montana, and is 100 percent manufactured in the USA.
“Unlike down feathers which are mostly by-products of the food industry and imported from China, our WoolCloud™ insulation is totally renewable season after season - it just grows back,” Duckworth Head of Product Development Graham Stewart said. “WoolCloud™ insulation can compete with down and synthetic fills in most conditions and excels in many specialized applications.”
Retailers and distributors are invited to view the entire Duckworth collection at Outdoor Retailer Winter Market, inside the Venture Out area at booth #VO105.
