Caramel Wool Fleece Jacket
Fleece is great. Wool fleece is next level.
When we say “wool fleece”, we don’t mean 100% wool. That would be impossible and impractical. Not a good move. We had the shell fabric for our Wool Fleece made custom in Wisconsin: this fleece is made with specialized, premium merino wool pile. The front, the fuzzy bit, is pure 62-grade merino wool. But the backing - that’s polyester. And it should be. Otherwise, as Yates and Achebe say, “things fall apart.” Surprisingly lightweight, this is more than a layer - and what if we told you, it breathes? Fleece products made from entirely polyester are soft, warm, and sweaty. Wool fleece is warm, soft, but also breathes because it is an evolved animal fiber.
Some of our favorite details are the tapered wrists, the exaggerated zipper, and most of all, the vertical zip chest pocket, which features straightforward, but subtle A.T. branding. The interior seams along the sleeves and armpits are flat locked: they won't dig into your body. Elastic wrists and waist ensure this fleece will keep its shape regardless of wind or thorough use. Lastly, the black nylon taslan chest pocket compliments the caramel body well, and can also be found beneath the collar - adding another layer of utility to this multi-seasonal fleece.
