Lani’s Lana is thrilled to offer Bare Ranch Wool Fabric, made of premium Rambouillet wool sourced from our family ranch, raised with Climate Beneficial™ land management practices, yarn dyed with natural botanical dyes at Swan's Island in Maine and woven by Huston Textile Company in Rancho Cordova, CA. We are connecting the supply chain dots between ranchers and artisans, raw product and fashion.
Analogous to the first organic and small scale food farmers who began their regional economic efforts with a Community Supported Agriculture model—to collect funding up front to help cover the costs of the growing season—we have developed a textile pre-sale model to help cover the costs of the value chain. By pooling demand from a community of like-minded artisans, we can support moving our local material through mills with higher minimums—leveraging economies of scale by working together. The fabric is currently stuck in the supply chain due to Covid-19 mill shutdowns in Los Angeles. (July 2020). The fabric is woven and absolutely beautiful. Once the restrictions are lifted this fabric will be finished very quickly, but it's impossible to give a shipment date. Search on Sample Set to order a sample book of all the fabrics.
This Balanced Twill Ramboulliet wool fabric is 45 inches wide and 8.5 ounces per square yard. Rambouillet wool produces a soft medium weight fabric that is ideal for cool weather. It has nice drape and would be perfect for light coats, blazers, sportswear jackets, skirts, pants and more.
