Love my new Woolen Moss pants! They drape elegantly, are incredibly soft, and very cozy. They are more comfortable than any other merino wool pants I’ve ever had. Kate was amazing and a joy with whom to collaborate. I discovered Kate and her beautiful creations only three weeks before a multi-week European trip and was dubious a custom order would arrive in time. Kate knocked it out of the ballpark—my favorite merino wall pants arrived a week ahead of our departure. Additionally, she created a hybrid between fitted and palazzo-style pants to meet my desire for something comfortable (and warm!)) for a long flight yet dressy enough to wear on other occasions. Thank you so much, Kate!

These leggings are beautiful! The mid weight fabric seems very warm (I’ve worn them on a few chilly late summer Vermont evenings so far) and is partly felted, so a little stretchy and seems like it will be pretty resistant to wind and small amounts of rain or snow, too. I heard of Kate’s business from an acquaintance I was talking with about finding natural fiber maternity clothes for winter; I am most comfortable in natural fibers and normally wear wool all winter, but this fall and winter none of my wool long underwear will fit since I’m having a baby in February. Kate was wonderful about creating leggings with a cotton waistband that will fit a large belly (and just keep them up now, with a small 4 months’ belly) to my measurements. Now I want another pair, maybe of lightweight ones! Thank you so much, Kate!

So pleased with my purchase here. Each piece was beautifully made. These are clothes you don't want to take off. Highly recommend this shop.

Wow. Tall girl can have nice things! These leggings are awesome and they will be THE thing I wear next winter and for the rest of my life. 😁

High-quality, matches description, met/exceeded expectations. Kate has been a pleasure to work with on these and quite a few other pieces of clothing she made to my nonstandard measurements (in this case, long rise and somewhat exaggerated hip to waist ratio). Fabric feels wonderful and the color is saturated; I love wearing these :)

High-quality, matches description, met/exceeded expectations. (I'll be using the same basic review for several items, with perhaps a comment or two specific to each item, since most of what I'm writing applies to all of the items I've purchased from this seller) I provided custom measurements since I'm broad-shouldered, short-waisted, have very long arms and a long rise, and my waist is smallish relative to my hips -- i.e. off the rack clothing tends not to fit me very well. Kate was patient, communicative, and a pleasure to work with! Fit and construction are great! These work nicely (and comfortably!) when I need to be out and about; I pair them with knee-length dresses for sun protection and a little warmth. When it gets cooler, they should also be great under the lightweight maxi skirts Kate also made me :)

Beautiful pants! As soon as I put them on my nervous system relaxed. I know these will be my favorite pants this winter. The seller was very accommodating and was able to switch the color of the pants after I ordered.

These Merino Wool pants are the most comfortable ever!! They are 180 degrees different from a pair I’ve owned for more than three years that I purchased from another purveyor. These are so soft and comfortable and beautifully tailored. Kate provided outstanding customer service. Thank you!

Love all of them as always. Thank you so much for the great colors and fit. Wear them most of the time. Happy Smiles and good thoughts, Pamela
The Evolution of Woolen Moss
Wanting to do something more meaningful and sustainable after years of sewing for the high end home interior industry, I established Woolen Moss in 2009. I began by making clothing from all natural materials for myself and realized I could do the same for others through Etsy.
My love of wool goods began with the start of Woolen Moss Farm in 2006. Though I raised my own sheep, and grew my own dye plants. I could not do it all. But my end goals stayed the same, and so a pursuit of relationships with other textile producers and famers, sourcing only high quality, ethically raised and sustainably produced wool fabrics for my clothing became the new reality.
Today Woolen Moss continues to be a small operation, turning out made to order high quality woolen clothing. Take good care of yourself, be kind to your body and move with ease in your new Woolen Moss clothing. No frills. Just warmth and softness. Utility and style.

Hello, and welcome to Woolen Moss! Thanks for stopping by. I hope you'll find just the right piece of clothing right here. All of my items are made to order. Please specify size according to the chart or provide measurements for your unique body size and shape.
All of my clothing is made from either merino wool or an organic cotton/bamboo blend. The merino wool is fabulously soft and available in a heavy weight, a mid weight fabric, or a light weight fabric. If cared for properly, your garments could last a lifetime and therefore add to the cycle of waste as little as possible. Take good care of yourself and your clothing too!
When ordering, a general size can be chosen from the chart listed with each item, but more specific measurements will ensure the best fit. The following is a list of measurements and how to take them:
HEIGHT ~ head to toe
BUST ~ at the widest point, over your bra, not your bra size
WAIST ~ just above the hip bones, or where you like your garment to rest
HIPS ~ the widest point
INSEAM ~ from the crotch seam to the bottom hem
ARM ~ from the shoulder seam to your wrist hem
BICEP ~ around your upper arm
SHOULDER ~ shoulder to shoulder across your back
MULTIPLE ITEM ORDERS
Most of my pieces can be ordered in multiples, or in different colors unless I specify something is one-of-a-kind. Shipping is automatically discounted upon checkout.
Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchange details
Certain states are now charging sales tax for online sales. If appropriate, this will be added at checkout.
I ship all items USPS First Class or Priority depending on package weight. It usually takes 2-5 business days within the US, and any where from 5-15 business days internationally (depending on your customs procedures). If you need something sooner, contact me and generally we can work something out.
Each package comes with $50 insurance. Once the package has safely left my hands, and been checked into the post office, any shipment and delivery issues should be taken up with your local USPS office. Please see your local office on how to file a claim in the case of a lost package.
I ship world-wide. Please note that all taxes, duties and customs fees associated with international shipping are the responsibility of the buyer.
