Denver - January 30, 2014 - Duckworth launched its groundbreaking collection of American wool apparel at the SIA trade show in Denver today. Duckworth is a modern heritage brand whose objective is resurrecting the lost art and craft of USA wool, combined with state-of-the-art innovations in wool technology.

Based in Bozeman, Montana, Duckworth is proud to stake its claim as the only source-verified American wool company. Duckworth creates premium wool garments exclusively from “Helle Rambouillet” wool, the fine American merino grown in Montana. The Rambouillet breed is renowned for its soft, durable fiber, which is considered in international textile circles to be the finest merino in the world. Environmental conditions in the high Rockies - hot, dry summers and freezing winters - shape a high-crimp fiber with exceptional loft and spring.

Duckworth has taken the lead in revitalizing the American wool industry by building supply chain partnerships from Montana to the Carolinas, a traditional powerhouse of US textile production. All spinning, knitting, and dyeing of yarns and fabrics is carefully managed using know-how and manufacturing techniques brought by Duckworthʼs design specialists, who are world experts in the art of wool.

The core of the Duckworth story lies in its fabrics and innovations. For example Duckworth is unveiling at SIA its “Polaris” wool waffle fabric which has incredible natural stretch, 4-way air trapping cells and extraordinary breathability. “Polaris” may be the most naturally technical wool fabric in the world. WoolCloud (patent pending) is a natural, high-loft, super-insulating engineered wool blend that outperforms synthetics and down.

“As an avid outdoorsman and fifth-generation Montanan, I not only wear wool, but also recognize the impact it has on our stateʼs economy," Montana Congressman Steve Daines said. "Montana has some of the best quality merino in the world, and Duckworth is poised to compete on a global scale. Iʼm proud that this Bozeman-based company is raising the bar in the wool industry.”

Retailers and Distributors are invited to view the collection at Booth #2421 at the SIA show.
