Cheers from the SnowShed® Team
American Founded, Family Owned & Made in the USA from the finest Aussie Merino wool.
Our intrepid founder, Colin Wischweh, is an avid skier, snowboarder and adventurer who grew up in frigid Chicago, attended the winter sports centric University of Utah, spent a few years as a "ski bum" in picturesque Crested Butte, CO, and was later employed as a Professional Ski Patrolman in Lake Tahoe. Colin knows the cold, the mountains, and winter sports. He's learned through years of frigid mountain living and thousands of vertical feet what fabric works best for him as a base layer, high-quality superfine Merino wool. Now, after hundreds of hours of research, design and testing, he brings you SNOWSHED® -- superfine Merino wool base layers and apparel! Made in the USA using only the finest Australian Merino wool.
Merino wool will keep you insulated (warm) even when wet due to the thousands of air pockets between the spun wool fibers. And merino wool takes a very long time to stink because the smelly atoms in sweat don't want to bond with natural merino wool -- basically the opposite of how synthetics react to sweat and stink. SNOWSHED® keeps you warm and dry without stinking for multiple days of athletic use. Guaranteed!
Why have we chosen an Axe as our logo? Because our brand represents the strong and tough outdoors attitude of a lumberjack. The axe is known for its function, durability, and usefulness. The axe is the symbol that stands in perfect unison with our SNOWSHED® Merino wool clothing. So get out there and show your axe off!
We've made our main focus to create a soft & breathable one-quiver line of thermals with all the cut, sewing & trim operations taking place right here in the USA. The warmth-to-weight ratio of our mid-weight merino fabrics is simply amazing & the American quality of construction is unparalleled. Autumn, winter, and spring are a perfect complement to our collection of soft, warm, no-stink 100% merino wool apparel.
