What is the difference between Rambouillet and Merino sheep?

Merino are desert sheep which were bred for dryer climates. Rambouillet merino are French merino sheep. 300 originals were brought to France in 1786 by Louis XIV. They were first brought to the US in 1889.

Why is DUCKWORTH different from the rest.

Source Verified (we own the sheep and carefully manage every step of the supply chain). Duckworth fibers are sorted and classed at the shearing for different fabrics and usages. This allows us to do what no other USA wool brands can do, have control and transparency to assure quality and function of each fabric for purpose. The Duckworth founders call it “Sheep to Shelf”™.

We spin our own yarn, knit our own custom fabrics for specific purposes, and carefully scrutinize the fit specifically for each fabric and function.

Rancher owned and 100% made in USA.

Acta non Verba – Live by actions not words. We actually build product and use our Duckworth gear everyday.

Is Montana grown Helle Rambouillet different than other Merino wool?

Yes! The unique growing conditions of the northern Rocky Mountains (hot summers, very cold winters, abundant sunshine and high altitude) grow a wool fiber that has more crimp and curvature than other wool. The end result is lofty, springy, bouncy and durable fiber. Not to mention our wool only travels from Montana to the Carolina’s to the customer. Other wool travels around the world before it finally gets to the customer

Why Duckworth Wool? ---- advantages of wool over cotton and synthetics.

Moisture Management

Wool absorbs 30% of its weight in water and begins to absorb and dispel humidity vapor before it turns to liquid (sweat). You feel dryer and more comfortable longer.

Thermal Control

“heat of sorption” – natural reaction, keeps you warm when wet. (as discovered by Coulier in 1858)

Renewable / Natural

Annually renewable, sheep are sheared 1x a year and the wool grows back. Entirely bio-degradable, no herbicides, or pesticides needed for production.

Odor Prevention

Naturally anti-microbial and anti-bacterial = no stink

Resistance

Natually, anti-static, anti UV and burn-resistant.

Durable

Less laundering means longer lasting wear, heavier weights last longer.

Silence

Wool fabric is remarkably quiet, allowing for silent movement.

Comfort

People feel better when surrounded by wools natural ionic microclimate, never too hot or too cold.

Misc:

Polyester are petroleum based fibers, they cannot absorb or release moisture (unless treated), and cannot breath. Simply no comparison to the breathability and comfort of wool.
