WeatherWool Fabric Samples -- Free



We are in the process of updating our Sample Packet.  Please place your order and we will ship as soon as available.

Fabric Samples are shipped free to the USA and Canada.   If you don't get the Samples, please let us know!  Sometimes they just seem to disappear along the way.  For International sample requests, shipping charges will be credited against first order.

WeatherWool® Hardcore Luxury® Fabric is the foundation of our company. We love to send Samples.

If fabric that met our (Ralph's) specs had been available in the marketplace, we would not have founded WeatherWool.

The Samples Packet contains:

  • Our Fabric Sample Booklet, featuring our Hardcore Luxury Merino Jacquard Woven Fabrics
  • Larger Test Swatches; one in MidWeight Fabric and one in FullWeight Fabric. We have just started offering Natural White (Undyed, Cream Color) Fabric, and we'll include a swatch of the Nat White
  • A Mouton Pelt Sample
  • A Slot Button, along with a few inches of Anchor Ribbon because many people are not familiar with Slot Buttons. We use the Slot Buttons on almost all our garments because they are much more secure than standard four-hole buttons
  • Information about wool, and WeatherWool

Why doesn't every garment maker offer fabric samples?  Maybe because they don't want you to see? Our own pure wool custom Merino Jacquard Fabrics are the basis of our company, and they have no equal in the marketplace, as far as we know. If Fabric that met our specs had been commercially available, we would not be here.

Our Fabrics are pure wool ... pure virgin wool ... pure American wool ... and made from only the select portions of the fleece.

There are many people who believe they know wool, and think WOOL IS WOOL ... we dearly love to send Samples to those folks (and everyone else) because handling our Fabric, even the small Test Swatches included with Sample Pack, really helps people understand our company.

The Test Swatches are random-sized Remnants from the tailoring of our garments, and they are large enough so you can do a little testing, and compare WeatherWool to other fabrics. Among the performance factors people examine: fire/embers, water, softness against the skin, silence, toughness, strength, reflectivity, camouflage properties, light test. (Holding the Test Swatches up to a light source to see how much light passes through. Please keep in mind the darkest colors absorb the most light ... that's the definition of "dark".)

One gent told us his Ladyfriend has always had a problem with wool. She tested our Sample by tucking it into her sock, and wearing it all day against her ankle. She forgot it was there and was happy to find woolen outerwear that is comfortable on her skin.

Dave Krysiak of Michigan: "My wife is quite sensitive to wool products against her bare skin so we are curious to test your fabric samples." Dave wrote again when he ordered a garment: "The fabric samples were very helpful and approved by the Boss (aka Mrs. Krysiak). She experienced no irritation whatsoever!"

And from Andrew Gorsuch: "Just got my samples. Mouton is unlike anything I’ve ever felt before. Really happy you’ve included actual scrap cuts of the FullWeight and MidWeight. I really can’t express how impressed I am by theses samples. Today would be a perfect day for your Anorak, can’t wait to have one." When Andrew gave permission to use his name, he added: "Yes use whatever I’ve said with my name or without as you’d like sir. I meant what I said. This looks like incredible material, I really can’t wait to get my hands on an anorak."

WeatherWool engineers the best 100% American, pure wool Merino-class Jacquard All-Purpose Outerwear ("Hardcore Luxury" is our registered trademark) we can figure out, backed by our standard offer of No-Risk, long-term testing. And so we are very happy to fulfill requests for WeatherWool Fabric Samples. We definitely would like to know what you think once you’ve handled the Samples.  We love to have WeatherWool Fabric and garments compared to -- and tested against -- anything else.

Our Fabrics are the foundation of our products. We know well the ranchers we buy from, and two of them (Bob Padula and Mike Corn) are Advisors to WeatherWool that we have known since our beginning. Even before we buy raw wool, our ranchers shear the wool in a way that assures only the best parts of the fleece are offered to us, after inferior parts (face, belly, lower legs, etc.) are removed from the area. We select the finest raw wool fiber after thorough evaluation of lab tests. Next are scouring (cleaning), dyeing, carding, spinning, weaving and finishing processes, all to specifications. These processes are summarized on our Start-to-Finish page.

Our MidWeight Fabric is about 13 ounces per square yard (441 grams per square meter) and FullWeight Fabric is about 19.4 opsy (658 gsm) although Fabric Batches will vary. We have a page that discusses FullWeight versus MidWeight Fabrics.  Please be aware that others may label a fabric “24 ounce wool”, but usually this refers to a running yard of unspecified width … and so 24 ounce wool can actually be lighter than 20 ounce wool, if the 24-ounce-bolt is wider.  But anyway, weight is a poor indicator of performance … lighter fabric made from superior fiber and woven with excellence as the only goal can easily outperform heavier “run of the mill” fabric.  We make our own Hardcore Luxury® Fabrics because we could find no commercial offerings meeting our specifications.

All our Fabrics provide luxurious and comfortable protection from the elements while being acceptable in any social setting.

  • Our proprietary Lynx Pattern is very effective natural camouflage and is very attractive in social and professional gatherings.  Lynx Pattern is not perceived as camo except by those who already "think camo"
  • Our Drab Green Color is similar to military Olive Drab
  • Our Brown is a Classic Brown that, like Drab Green, is acceptable anywhere in public but very difficult to see in Nature
  • With the possible exceptions of True Black and Natural White-Cream, our Fabrics are effective camouflage as they blend extremely well into a wide variety of Natural settings. Our Black is a true black. Natural White-Cream is the natural, undyed and unbleached color of the wool as it came from the sheep
  • All our Fabrics are woven in Lynx Pattern, but the solids are woven with yarns of only one color. However, the Lynx Pattern is very slightly visible even in the solids because Jacquard weaving causes the solids to reflect light in a different manner than standard weave. The Jacquard weave creates a soft, rich texture that enhances the ability of even the solid colors to blend into Nature. The millers actually refer to our Fabrics as Lynx-Lynx, Lynx-Black, Lynx-Brown, Lynx-Drab and Lynx-Natural White

We offer a separate page, Our Colors, with more detail.

The Natural Mouton Lamb Fleece is used inside our Mouton JacketMouton VestMouton HatHand Muff, and Mouton Hood.  Mouton is real fleece ... a real pelt (taken from a lamb that has been processed for meat), leather included, and nothing like the synthetic petrochemical stuff that is routinely called “fleece”.

We offer No-Risk Field Testing because the “living room test” is good only for sizing.  Real evaluation of outerwear requires experience in a wide variety of weather conditions and activities.  And please wear wool base layers (or no base layers) under your WeatherWool.  Any other type of base is less than optimal.  We invite everyone to give WeatherWool a heavy-duty field-test … and get a 100% refund if not completely happy. We can't picture operating any other way. 

We look forward to hearing your impressions of the Samples.

THANKS for your interest in WeatherWool!

A great many people have told us they really appreciated the Samples, so maybe someone will post.

Our Fabric

Our Fabric is the heart of what we do. We make our own Fabric, starting with raw wool carefully and specifically selected from a small group of ranches in the USA that meet our certification standards of long, strong, and comfortable fibers.


Where is it made?

All of our products are 100% made in the USA using 100% American-made wool and materials. We pay American citizens to make all of our garments. See more.

Is WeatherWool in retail stores?

No, it is only available directly through this Website.

What are your garments designed for?

We set out to make the best All-Purpose outerwear possible and we take that "ALL" part seriously. While some items may be better then others for specific needs we like to think we have the perfect garment for anything you do outside regardless if it is in the serving in military, hunting, camping, city, country, work or worship.

Why is it so expensive?

We never cut a single corner at any step. We make our own fabric, from the best wool in the USA. There are over 45 steps in making our fabric alone. We use the highest quality materials made in the USA. We have owner operated customer service on call to serve you and offer free shipping in USA and Canada as well as hassle free returns.

Is WeatherWool Merino Wool?

Not exactly. Merino is great wool and has been very well marketed over the years but pure merino alone is not actually suitable for us.

We select our wool based on a number of characteristics including micron, strength, length, and comfort factor. With the help of our advisor Bob Padula we have determined the perfect recipe for our goals. Thanks to modern equipment we can test all the wool before we buy it and that wool is primarily coming from Rambouillet and Targhee breads.

How do you clean WeatherWool

Short answer, you almost never need to. It's self cleaning. We've had garments we've worn for 7 years that have never been cleaned other then some rain.

However, things happen. If a lukewarm bath and dry flat doesn't do the trick, you can try wool-cleaner. Our full cleaning page is here.

Can bugs bite through your fabric?

We have not heard of any that can.

What is your customer service policy?

Our customers will be taken care of.

Full Customer Service policy can be found here.

About us

Founders / Owners

WeatherWool was founded in 2009 by Ralph and Debby DiMeo. Together with their children and a few friends they maintain 100% ownership of the company. Their full story can be read here.

Direct Connection To The Source

We make our own Fabric, starting with raw wool carefully and specifically selected from a small group of ranches in the USA that meet our certification standards. This isn't no stock photo. We're actually out there during shearing sampling wool and sharing stoies and good times with the ranchers and their families.

The Best We Can Figure Out

While most companies decide a price point, and reverse engineer a garment to meet that retail price, WeatherWool does the opposite. We make the best garment we can figure out how to make at every decision we face.Although our garments seem pricey to some our profit margins are below average and you're getting more value for your money and assurance that you're getting some of the best wool in the world.

Customer Reviews

Based on 3 reviews

I never received it

Work of art

Not to mention the professional appearance of the samples, they really helped assist me in deciding between the full and mid weights. In the northeast, weather turns in an instant and is usually moist/wet. I looked at the two large samples of wool and it really helped with the decision . I’m going with full because that’s what’s available at this time, but I’m placing my order for a mid weight as well.
If you’re on the fence because spending so much money on a garment is ludicrous, order a free sample, see and feel for yourself. Watch the imbedded videos to see how the material is processed.
Now for the double hood… LFG!!!


WeatherWool is a great company with a terrific product and unsurpassed customer service. And Made in the USA. Perfect.
