The Filson Crewneck Guide Sweater is made with 100% heavyweight Merino wool, using highly-twisted yarns for added durability that resists piling with wear. It insulates while remaining naturally rain-repellent, breathable and sweat-wicking. With its crewneck design, ribbed cuffs and ribbed hem it's an ideal pullover for layering in cold weather.
The U.S. sourced wool is from merino sheep prized for their long, fine fleece with a wavy crimp that results in a fabric that’s soft and sturdy, with natural memory and shape retention. Merino wool fibers are an incredibly complex structure, with thousands of tiny filaments sheathed within overlapping scales that are naturally water repellent. This allows water to bead up on the surface. Any moisture that does penetrate the fiber is wicked to the tips and evaporates away. This capillary action is what allows wool to absorb up to 30% of its own weight in water without feeling damp or clammy. This fine merino fleece is twisted into extremely tight, firm yarns before knitting, which creates the surprising density and smooth, non-scratchy surface that wears like iron.
