Filson Guide Sweater
Filson heavyweight sweaters are knit using twice as much wool as you'd expect in sweaters
of this type. They use only 100% Merino wool from hardy sheep renowned for long, fine wool
that's soft yet strong. Those strong wool fibers are carded and combed in parallel fashion,
then twisted hard during spinning to create worsted yarns of even more strength and smoothness.
Finally, Filson knits those yarns very tightly for a firm finish that wears extremely well.
Naturally warm, naturally water repellent
This finish is not only pleasing to the touch but actually enhances the natural water repellent
properties of the wool fibers. Whether worn as an outer garment or inner layer, Filson 100% Merino
virgin wool sweaters will exceed your expectations for performance and longevity. They will last
a lifetime and, we believe, may be handed down to future generations.
You'll be surprised at the weight and ruggedness of this very high-quality sweater. The secret is
the tightly knit worsted wool, which gives this sweater a density and firm finish that lasts a lifetime.
This specially milled wool also absorbs as much as 30% of its weight without becoming damp or clammy,
allowing our Guide Sweater to retain body heat even when very wet. Naturally water repellent, it is the
ideal garment for cold rainy weather. Dry clean. Made in USA.
