Sheep Wool Grades

Sheep’s Wool Grades are important to consumers as well as the fashion industry.  The more you know about the various options of wool the better.  We all know many of the benefits of wool, but we should also have a general understanding of the various grades of wool.
Wool Grades
Wool grades are selected by clothing designers to suit the needs of the products being developed. For example, a high-end luxury wool scarf for a super model may require a different grade of wool than a thick & heavy pea coat for a fisherman.  Different wool grades offer different fiber lengths, fiber thicknesses and other properties.  The type of wool used for a garment or fashion accessory is decided based on different criteria.

Benefits of Wool

We all know that wool is awesome but we may not all be sure "why".  Let's take a few moments to learn more about why is so often used in fashion.  Our industry loves making wool coats, wool sweaters, wool pants, wool socks, hats, gloves, scarves, and the list goes on and on.  Their must be a good reason that so much clothes is produced with wool fiber and fabrics.

Some Benefits of Wool

  • Resists wrinkles - wool springs back quickly
  • Resists soiling - because the fiber is complex
  • Is durable - multi-part fiber resists wear
  • Repels moisture - fiber sheds water
  • Retains shape - resilient fibers return to size
  • Resists flames - fibers will not support combustion
  • Is comfortable in all seasons - keeps layer of air next to skin

Spring is hot and so is pineapple fashion this season. We’ve found the tees that everyone will be talking about not just for their unique styles, but what wearing one provides for the local community.
ATX Pinery embodies Pura Piña
Introducing Ross Johnson and ATX Pinery.  Ross Johnson is the founder of ATX Pinery, an athleisure fashion brand with a love of pineapples from Austin, Texas. 

ATX Pinery embodies Pura Piña, a frame of mind that's all about celebrating life, having fun and exuding hospitable vibes by giving back!  In 2013 the founder's good friend asked him to babysit his Pineapple pinery in downtown Austin.  After a few months turned into a couple of years, his friend decided he wasn't coming back to Austin and told Ross, "They're your babies now!" 

Today, the pineapples are the source of inspiration for their new e-commerce store! ATX Pinery brings the symbol of the pineapple to the shirts and sleeves of stylish tanks and tees. True to their roots, they also give back a portion of their proceeds to the Sustainable Food Center in Austin.
