Wool is Not Just for Winter!

May 12, 2017 by Dina 1 comment(s)


Spring has sprung, and it seems like a great time to pull out your lightweight garments and put away your wool. But not so fast! Tropical and lightweight wool make wonderful spring or summer suits, tops, and dresses. In a lightweight wool suit lined with rayon Bemberg, you'll be comfortable in virtually any weather (other than the sticky kind of heat where the only way to keep cool is to jump in a pool).

Wool gauze is another excellent fabric in warmer weather; it's diaphanous enough to let through all the breezes, and it will also keep you from shivering after the sun goes down. Visit the famous wool wall (100 feet of wool!!) in our brick and mortar store, and we'll show you our favorite pieces.
