Pictures, Tales

28 June 2017

This section has pictures and some tales about WeatherWool ... what we do, what people do in WeatherWool, where our wool comes from, who wears it, what professional reviewers have written about WeatherWool.    Also included are some narratives, such as Rain, that describe what WeatherWool can do, and the types of activities for which WeatherWool is worn.   The pictures help illustrate what our Fabrics look like in various settings.    The talk hopefully also conveys a sense of what we are about.

For close-up pictures of our Fabric, please take a look at the Fabrics page.

Please send us your input.   We love to put material from our customers here.    Thanks --- Ralph
