This thick and versatile pullover slides under our Shell Layers for extreme cold, and works well by itself in cool weather. It’s at home just about anywhere, be it a coffee shop or a portage. The Wool Blanket Shirt is somewhat archaic, but its Colonial styling replicates the resolute clothing worn on the frontier. Does it hold up in today’s world? Yes, from Alaska to Australia. We’re confident enough to offer a lifetime warranty on each one. If it breaks because of the way we’ve built it, we’ll fix it. Just try that at your local trading post. (Warranty does not cover Wovlerine attacks, bullet holes, dancing, etc.)
We wash our regular blankets to tighten their weave and bulk up the nap. Then we stitch and topstitch all the exposed seams through the shoulders. The shallow neck opening has deer antler buttons, made right here in our shop. Our simple collar rolls down when you don’t need it, and snuggles high against your neck when you do. The WBS is romantically large and long, so the plain hem reaches to mid thigh. Rolled cuffs ride down over your wrists, leaving room for you to tuck in your work gloves or wool mittens. Think of the WBS as a sweater on steroids. It’s a warm, stylish place to store dog hair, wood shavings, and trail debris. Unlike a classy Aran knit, it won’t unravel itself at the first snip. The fabric will pill up and mash down, but a gentle wash should make it spring right back for more abuse.
Fabric:100% wool, domestic and imported. Wool and Leather colors will vary. . Sizes: SM-XL. Custom sizing available on a limited basis. Machine or hand wash cold, gentle cycle with mild soap, air dry, expect lint.
