Before synthetics, the “technical fabrics” we depended on to keep us warm were built with the highest quality natural fibers and knitted with uncompromising durability. Our waffle fabric was born out of that tradition.
You know the old adage “they don’t make ‘em like this anymore?” In the case of the rib we use for the cuffs and neck on the waffle, it’s actually (almost) true. It’s made custom for us by a man in LA who uses a specific machine and method to build the shrink into the knit before it’s cut to prevent future shrink and wear. He’s the last person in the USA who can do it this way.
