Re-Imagine Wool

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Ramblers Way. All opinions are 100% mine.

Would you wear wool underwear? Well, would you?  You're probably thinking, 'No way!  Wool is way too scratchy to wear as underwear.'  At least that's what I'd be thinking if someone asked me.  When I think of wool, I think of sweaters that are hot and itchy.  They're great for keeping you warm in winter, but you better have something on underneath.  I had a pair of wool pants once, but I rarely wore them because they made my legs itch so bad.  I tried wearing pantyhose underneath them, but that didn't seem to help much.  I'd certainly never want underwear made from that wool!

Why am I even asking about wool underwear?  Because the folks at Ramblers Way have completely re-imagined wool and made it possible to wear wool right next to your skin, comfortably.  Imagine - soft, comfortable wool that you'll want to wear every day.

Ramblers Way garments undergo their "WINDspun" technology which offers the smoothest, most luxurious wool yarn in the marketplace.  Here's an explanation of what makes Ramblers Way yarn superfine, free of those pesky, itchy loose ends and also much lighter than traditional wool.  Ramblers Way garments are not itchy, not heavy, not hot.  They're soft and comfortable, warm and equally cool because they breathe naturally (did you know wool was a year-round fabric?), completely natural and chemical-free, durable, moisture and odor resistant, machine washable and dryable, and completely American made.  This is not the same wool I've always known.

I may not be ready for wool underwear, but I'm thinking a nice wool shirt would be nice.  Short or long-sleeved?
