Lynx Pattern is a signature of WeatherWool ... we developed the pattern ourselves, and it is copyrighted.
Lynx is a Natural pattern, copied from the foreleg of the Canada Lynx. Our thinking was that the fur of the Lynx is not only very effective camouflage in a wide variety of Natural settings, but that it is also very beautiful AND would not be perceived by the general public as a camouflage pattern. Our own extensive testing has shown all of this to be true. It was Debby who first described Lynx Pattern as "camo-camo", and indeed, it is. More than one customer has told us the same story ... A stranger was staring, and eventually the stranger approached our customer saying YOU KNOW, THAT JACKET WOULD BE GREAT CAMOUFLAGE!
Lynx is fundamental to our company because it was only while developing the Lynx Pattern that we also developed a Fabric that met my performance specs. I didn't know it at the time, but Lynx must be woven on a Jacquard Loom. And the Jacquard weave creates a Fabric with yarns running North-South and East-West (like a standard Dobby Loom) AND Up-Down (beyond the capability of the Dobby). The Jacquard Loom creates a sort of three-dimensional Fabric that greatly enhances performance in the weather. All our Fabrics are woven in Lynx Pattern, but the Solid Colors (Black, Drab, Duff) are woven with single-color yarns. Because the Jacquard is much more expensive than Dobby, Jacquard Looms are normally only used when a complex visual pattern is the goal. And Jacquard is seldom used for clothing, and almost never for solid colors.
