Where your WOOL IS MADE matters

Duckworth is proud to be the only source-verified, 100% Made-in-USA Merino wool clothing company. Every sweater, sock, baselayer and t-shirt is 100% made-in-USA from Montana merino sheep. Starting at our ranch in Dillon, Montana where our sheep spend the winters at 5,000 feet and the summers at 9,500 feet in the high alpine pastures. The weather conditions and elevation changes in Montana create a fine Merino wool with more crimp, curvature and loft, making our garments soft next to skin and perfect for any activity. Every Duckworth Wool garment is grown, knit and built in the USA.

Duckworth Merino Apparel

Powder Wool


A versatile, loose fit, multi-functional fleece with pouch pocket. This wool fleece is engineered for comfort, insulation, and wicking. The tough wool outer matrix is stealthy and light with a soft brushed inside against the skin. Men’s and Women’s Powder wool is ideal for around town, and outer layer on cool days, a mid-layer on very cold days and staying cozy by the fire on any day.

Vapor Wool


Duckworth Vapor Wool has several amazing qualities, it’s ultralight, dries fast, and cools you off while you sweat. It’s anti-microbial and doesn’t retain odors like synthetic fabrics do. It’s made up of ultra-fine, Montana-grown Merino wool blended with a mix of cellulose and Polyester. They are individually cut and blended together into a single yarn, creating a lighter and more consistent Merino wool fabric–ideal for almost any activity.

Comet Wool


This hydro-ply fabric is a natural-technical mash-up. Perfect as a first layer in cooler conditions or worn solo as an alternative sweatshirt. Combining a pure Merino outer (50%) and an ultra-thin micro-fiber polyester inner layer (50%). All the performance of fast wicking poly and absorbent wool. This double layer sandwich wicks moisture off your skin into the absorbent wool second layer keeping you amazingly comfortable and warm. A favorite fabric of skiers, hikers, winter enthusiasts, or any stop & go activity.
