Our Amnicon line is made from two different Polartec wool-blend fabrics:® Power Wool™ and High Loft™ with wool. In contrast to many blended fabrics, which combine polyester and wool within the same thread, Polartec® wool-blends utilizes a bi-component knit that places separate wool and polyester threads where they can be most effective.
Power Wool™ is a lightweight and thin fabric with a durable polyester exterior and a soft and odor resistant merino wool interior grid. *Despite its wool content, Power Wool™ can be used, washed and dried like other fleece.
High Loft™ with wool is a lofty midweight fabric with a durable polyester structural weave and soft, fuzzy and odor resistant interior and exterior merino wool layers. The result is an amazingly light and lofty wool garment. *Though much more stable than 100% wool fabrics, High Loft™ with wool should be hang-dried.
These unique integrations of polyester and wool fibers allows us to make a best-of-both-worlds garment that holds up well, feels great against the skin and resist odors. See the final photos in the gallery for examples of the hood types. *Hood photos are not examples of the Amnicon fabrics
