Woolrich has been synonymous with
quality outdoor clothing for over 178 years. The company got its start in 1830
when John Rich, an immigrant from England, built his first woolen mill in Plum
Run, Pennsylvania. Rich would visit the lumber camps that dotted the area and
sell his woolen fabric, socks, coverlets, and yarn from a mule cart.
Today the little village of Woolrich is
still headquarters for the company, but the business has grown to a worldwide
lifestyle company with a full range of outdoor-inspired products, from jackets
and shirts to furniture and tableware. The company that provided blankets to the
Union soldiers in the Civil War today keeps folks warm under its wonderful
throws as they cuddle up by the fireplace. You can buy a wool jacket your
great-great grandfather may have worn in the woods or a parka that's all about
the latest in advanced technology.
