Filson Outfitter Sweater
Our heavyweight sweaters are knit using twice as much wool as you'd expect in sweaters of this type.
We 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. (Worsted wool is known
for its tightly-spun yarns, creating a smooth finish and long wear. Our specially milled worsted
yarn is extra heavy and tightly knit, giving a firm finish, with exceptional warmth and durability.)
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, our 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.
Oil Finish Cover Cloth over the upper body adds protection against the wear of backpack and
camera straps, blocks wind and rain, while retaining flexibility. Button front lets you adjust
ventilation for maximum comfort. Made in USA of US wool and imported cotton. Machine wash cold,
inside-out, dry flat.
