I love sweaters, but I can never really wear them since they are itchy and uncomfortable for me, especially wool sweaters. I haven't found a sweater that is stylish, comfortable and itch-free. However, I might just have to reconsider this since I just discovered a fantastic company that promises what I'm looking for in a sweater.

I have heard through the grapevine that the Ramblers Way offers sweaters that are smooth, and luxurious sweaters. They are made with the highest quality of wool yarn in the marketplace. Their ultra-light line of worsted wool garments will keep you comfy and warm, but will also let you breathe naturally without feeling hot and / or heavy. Best of all, their line isn't pre-washed in chlorine with the traditional super-wash that most companies have a tendency to use. Instead, Ramblers Way uses a patented enzyme treatment to prevent shrinkage and help keep their garments fully washable. They're an American company, but you can be rest assured that their garments are all natural and chemical-free. Personally, I haven't tried out anything from this brand, but this all sounds good enough for me to be interested.

What makes it even more interesting is that co-founders Tom and Kate Chappell are also founders of Tom's of Maine, another well respected company, which was established in 1970. This family business has their own sheep farms in Maine and on ranches in Colorado, Montana, Nevada, South Dakota, Texas, and Utah. The partners that work with them must comply with their standards by providing superfine softness and sustainable farming practices. These people that work with share the same values for high quality and sustainability. Their next-to-skin worsted wool garments are made in factories in South Carolina, North Carolina and New England, by people whose families have been operating for generations.
