With The Best
Most recent Update: 26 December 2018
This page pairs WeatherWool with the best products from other categories.
One reason I decided to put up this page is because we have found that many -- even most -- people think "wool is wool", that all wool is the same, whereas everyone understands, for example, that there are "cars", but also Ferrari, Lamborghini, Rolls and Bentley.
This is something else. In December of 2018, we were contacted by Jerry Fisk (@JerryFisk on Instagram), the man behind Fisk Knives. Jerry has a ShirtJac in Lynx Pattern, and he used it as the backdrop for this photo of his Camp Knife:
This was actually the first pairing ... and it is kind of funny ... I had just come up with the idea for this page when our refrigerator needed service. New Jersey, where we live, is an often-surprising place. It turns out that our refrigerator repairmen are brothers, and both very serious outdoorsmen. They even have friends who are sponsored outdoor professionals. So they were extremely interested in WeatherWool. When I mentioned that I was planning to put up this page, they said something like "Well, your Sub-Zero Refrigerator is the best there is ...". So, here's a pic of me in my SkiJac, the fridge, and brothers Eric and Kevin of Authorized Refrigeration LLC. They handle Sub-Zero, and nothing else. And they did a great job!
OK ... and here is the first of the great cars ... this from Kyle Kretzloff in Washington State. Thanks, Kyle! Enzo Ferrari was working at Alfa Romeo, but their cars weren't good enough ... so he made his own. No commercially available fabrics came close to meeting WeatherWool specs, so we designed and developed WeatherWool Fabric, starting with the best sheep and the top ranchers.
