But with only 12 employees and such a high quality product, we couldn’t exclude them.

“Wool is Mother Nature’s miracle fiber, thanks to moisture, temperature, and odor controlling properties,” says Peter Duke, Point6 CEO. “Bringing 37.5 technology fiber into the mix elevates wool’s benefits to a whole new level.”
