About

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. The vision of raising all my own wool from the sheep on my own farm evolved into a pursuit of relationships with other wool growers and textile producers, sourcing only high quality wool fabrics for my clothing.

Knowing that conventional cotton is the most highly sprayed crop in the world, I also began carrying organic cotton fabrics blended with bamboo for summer garments. This step propelled me into a year round thriving handmade clothing business.

As there is controversy about the use of bamboo in fabrics, I am happy to address this issue with you upon request. I have done a vast amount of research on this, and it is my conclusion that the pros far outweigh the cons when considering it's impact on the planet, on mill workers, and on the wearer. Please feel free to inquire if you'd like my two cents.

Today Woolen Moss continues to be a small operation. Being a good steward of your planet means taking good care of yourself too. The idea behind Woolen Moss is that feeling good and looking good are tied together. I believe that moving freely, feeling good about who you are and "being the change you wish to see in the world" can all start with taking good care of yourself and your family. Good, clean, flattering garments are a lovely way to start.

    I grew up in the mountains of Pennsylvania drawing, making and building. I chased those ideas through the mountains of Virginia and then Colorado, where I completed my sculpture degree. I then moved with my family to rural NY where Woolen Moss began.

WELCOME!
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. When necessary, please specify size according to the chart or provide measurements for your unique body size and shape.

MATERIALS
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 or a mid weight fabric, your choice on every garment. If cared for properly, your garments could last a lifetime and therefore add to the cycle of waste as little as possible. I've also stopped carrying cotton jersey and rely only on French Terry now, as it is a more durable long lasting fabric. Take good care of yourself and your clothing too!

SIZING
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.

Returns and exchange details
Please contact me if you have concerns with your order. The quality of my work is important to me, and I will work with you to make sure you are satisfied with your purchase. I do not accepts returns, as each piece has been custom made for you. Please expect that garments may fit each body differently. If there is a problem with the fit of your garment, generally small alterations can solve this. I'm always available to discuss this with you! No cash refunds available. All shipping costs are non-refundable.
Payment
Payment should be made immediately upon checkout. I accept Paypal and credit cards through Direct Checkout. The "other" option is for gift certificates only.

New York State residents will be charged 4% sales tax, which will be added at checkout through PayPal.
Shipping
Depending on the time of year, I ship orders within 2-4 weeks of payment to the address you supply Etsy upon checkout, unless otherwise specified. I will convo you if this time frame needs to be extended for any reason.

I ship all items USPS Priority with tracking. 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 the base amount of Priority insurance. Once the package has safely left my hands, 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.
