It's a fact: the Duckworth family gets after it. Since our founding some nine years ago, our Montana-grown, American-made Merino layers have supported a tradition of outdoor adventuring unlike any other, one that starts all the way at the the source - the Helle Family, our founders and sheep ranchers - and flows mightily through the entire DW clan, a torch carried ultimately by our customers (like you).

Along the way, the marriage of backcountry conditions, intrepid spirit, and our layers have formed the backbone of many a story, countless #RUGGEDYARNS worth retelling over meals and crackling fires. 

Now is your time to get them out there (and win big in the process). We're putting out a call-to-entry for your best content from those epic tales: photos and vertical video. 

The prize and rules are as follows: 


Duckworth will gift a $1,500 gift card to the winner, to be applied to our premium, award-winning Merino Wool layers.



We are encouraging multiple forms of entry (multiple entries are also encouraged, but only one of each category, please!)


1. Video Content - 10 possible points: Send us a video from your adventure(s). It can be as creative as you want, comprising just one shot or multiple, with natural sound only. Multiple seasons in your Duckworth encouraged. Standard iPhone/Android vertical (9:16 ratio) footage required. Brownie points for posting it on your Instagram with a killer caption and the #RUGGEDYARNS & #DUCKWORTHCO hashtags.


3. Photo Content - 5 possible points for each entry:  Send us a photo(s) from your adventure(s) (up to three). Brownie points for posting them on your Instagram with a killer caption(s) and the #RUGGEDYARNS & #DUCKWORTHCO hashtags.

All submissions should be emailed to marketing@duckworthco.com, along with any links to relevant social media posts. Once submitted, the DW team will post the best-of-the-best to our journal and social media accounts, for the Duckworth community to admire, enjoy...and envy. All submissions must be received by September 15, 2023
