Check out rambler’s way, brought to you by the famous folks at tom’s of maine

By: Laura Serino

I’m sure you’ve heard of Tom’s of Maine before. In fact, you probably have their toothpaste sitting by your sink. Their latest venture, Ramblers Way, is a sustainable clothing line made from 100% American-made wool. All the garments are made from superfine worsted wool and sourced from farms in the USA.

This isn’t the wool you associate with your itchy crewneck that you’d never wear without a layer underneath. The wool used in all their clothing is super lightweight and fine and feels soft against the skin. All garments are also dyed using natural plants in a commercial dye house in Maine. From start to finish, Rambler’s Way considers the ecological and sustainable impact they’re making with every piece of clothing they make.

If you haven’t yet seen their product up close, they will be hosting a trunk show at Jill McGowan (56 Main Street) ┬áin Freeport today from 1pm to 7pm. Swing by and meet Ramblers Way designer Eliza Chappell and Jill McGowan in person and let us know what you think!
