Wool Blanket Shirt
**For reference only. The WBS
had a great run. It may return for a guest appearance in years to come.
Look for the new Scout Shirt to take its place this Winter.
This thick and versatile pullover slides
under our Shell Layers for
extreme cold, and works well by itself in cool weather. It's at
home just about anywhere, be it a coffee shop or a portage. The Wool
Blanket Shirt is somewhat archaic, but its Colonial styling
replicates the resolute clothing worn on the frontier. Does it
hold up in today's world? Yes, from Alaska to Australia. We're confident enough to offer a lifetime warranty on each
one. If it breaks because of the way we've built it, we'll fix it. Just
try that at your local trading post. (Warranty does not cover Wovlerine attacks,
bullet holes, break dancing, etc.)
We wash our blankets to tighten
their weave and bulk up the nap. Then we stitch and topstitch all the
exposed seams through the shoulders. The shallow neck opening has deer
antler buttons, made right here in our shop. Our simple collar
rolls down when you don't need it, and snuggles high against your neck
when you do. The WBS is romantically large and long, so the plain
hem reaches to mid thigh. Rolled cuffs ride down over your wrists,
leaving room for you to tuck in your work gloves or wool mittens.
Fabric: 20 ounce imported wool/nylon
(80/20 percent by weight) Colors: Olive
Green, Navy Blue, Forest Green,
or Burgundy. Leather colors will vary. Sizes: XS-XL.
Custom sizing available on a limited basis. See our Sizing page for
details. Machine or hand
wash cold, gentle cycle with mild soap, air dry, expect lint.
Think of the WBS as a sweater on steroids. It's a warm, stylish
place to store dog hair, wood shavings, and trail debris. Unlike
a classy Aran knit, it won't unravel itself at the first snip. The
fabric will pill up and mash down, but a gentle wash should make it
spring right back for more abuse.
