  • Epaulet x Styleforum Alpine Loden Collection

    Loden wool, woven in Tirol for centuries, is known for its resistance to cold and wetness. Our project in collaboration with Epaulet introduces Alpine Loden, a modern 18oz fabric blend of 75% merino wool and 25% nylon, woven in Italy. It's lighter, more durable, wind-resistant, and more comfortable than traditional Loden fabric. Partnering with Rochester Tailored Clothing, we offer custom garments like sportcoats, suits, and overcoats, made to your specifications. Learn more about the Loden collection here.

Is lambswool higher quality than regular wool? What about compared to cashmere?

It's at least supposed to be softer (and therefore lower lifespan) than regular wool, but I'd guess it's not regulated. Definitely not as soft as cashmere although some members claim that the difference is not noticable enough to be worth the cost.
