Freshisle Fibers Suffolk Wool to the Summit
In this world of of synthetic fibers my son chose his new "Freshisle Fibers" "Suffolk Wool" hat, scarf, mittens, and socks to hike to the top of Mount Washington on Sunday, January 14, 2007. This was an 8 and a half mile round trip up some of the roughest, steepest terrain on the east coast of the US; 6,288 ft. (1916.6 m). It was 19 degrees F, with winds gusting to 75 MPH. Was he cold, NO. Great stuff check it out at

That is just so amazing. I still can't quite believe our wool is now travelling the world! What an adventure for him - great pictures!

That is very very cool (well, warm, but you know) indeed! Glad he made it up and down in one piece - FF is awesome yarn, for sure!
