Is There a Difference in Wool?

There is. Ever wonder why some wool itches and feels coarse to the skin and other feels so smooth and silky? It depends which animal the wool comes from. Merino Wool from Australia or New Zealand is the best wool. Eighty-five percent of the World’s Merino Wool comes from Australia.

A good guideline is knowing the difference. The interior wool has a silk or wet like feel, that is genetically the amount of body oil in the wool itself. The outside wool on top of the animal is drier and coarser to the skin and protects the animal from the elements.

Merino wool are thinner and finer strands woven into some of the best wool fabrics. Much finer than most wool available. Merino Wool features the following attributes: it is cool, it breathes and wicks moisture away from the skin. It is durable, holds it shape and feels so good to wear. Some of the best base layer clothing available today is made of Merino Wool which is ideal for all kinds of outdoor activities including running, hiking and exercise.

Merino Wool is a preferred wool for better Professional Men’s and Women’s Clothing. If you never tried to wear Merino Wool, you are in for a treat.

Shop Local and Keep Money in the Community…during the Holidays and Year Round

This holiday season more and more gift buying is occurring at local businesses in our community.  Shoppers prefer doing business with local merchants who are established and reputable. Holiday shopping can be a hassle in a big box or chain store where help is limited and darn near impossible to get questions answered.  Unfortunately, there is a lack training and experience and that exasperates the buying experience.

Big Box and Chain Stores, alike, drain money from the community and does not cycle back into the local economy.  The same occurs with on line shopping.  If the gifts have to be returned, there is the added expense of returns, restock fees, shipping and the time it takes.

Shop Local eliminates most of the negative shopping experince.  Local Merchants are passionate about their business and clients.  Work with experts, who are knowledgeable and deliver a top notch buying experience.  This is evergreen throughout the year.

Know What You are Getting Beforehand…Not After The Caboose Goes By!

Clothing should never be bought based on a name or label. There are
so many variables in clothing production, source of manufacture, fabric, interfacing, lining, padding, thread, buttons, styling, fit and longevity.

Names and labels does not denote quality, especially when the price is too good to be true. Something has got to give and normally it is taking short cuts in fabrics, production, etc.

Before purchase, do your homework! Know and understand what you are getting. There are differences. Don’t base an apparel purchase on the marketing of a garment, make it on quality, value and longevity. A core essential wardrobe consists of garments that last, mix-n-match, dress up and down and be ready on a moments notice for anything that comes up. You will have a better wardrobe over time, spend less and one that will give you a good return on your investment.

It is best to take your time and base your decision on good information not after the Caboose passes by. Be pro-active and prevent buyer’s remorse!
