This is a fantastic piece. I have only had it a for a couple of weeks and it is already a wardrobe staple. Goes with everything, super flattering and comfortable, very well-made.

Material is nice, packaging was lovely. The leggings did not go up as high as I wanted, because it was tight, not due to lack of length (a skinnier more athletic built leg would work better). Once I did pull it up as far as it would go, after walking a few minutes it slipped down to my knees. After about 5 minutes it slipped down to my ankles. I guess you have to wear tights under these to keep them up, but for me the whole purpose was to avoid the tights. I bought 2 pair, only tried on one, no refund offered. She did offer to alter it, but it's the material that is not stretchy enough to stay up. Which might be fine for others who wear it on top of tights.
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.

Hello, and welcome to Woolen Moss! Thanks for stopping by. I hope you'll find just the right item here, and don't be afraid to ask for special requests. 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.
All of my textiles are sourced from reliable, eco conscious companies that offer only the finest organic textiles. Also, all organic fabrics are dyed with fiber reactive, low-impact dyes that leave as little impression on this earth as possible. I've also chosen to include some spectacular 100% wool non-organic fabrics as limited edition garments, due to their uniqueness and beauty. My hope is that each garment is long-lasting and therefore adds to the cycle of waste as little as possible.
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:
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.
