Wool is Cool

Giesswein’s boiled wool is soft, lightweight, and breathable, helping to keep your feet cool in the heat and snug in the cold. Our signature softness ensures your feet stay comfy with no itchy, scratchy chaffing.

Renewable Materials

The natural beauty of our environment is reflected in our appliquéd designs and the richness of our wool, but the connection we have to our environment also influences the way we operate our business. Our conscious manufacturing practices not only make for a better product, but also contribute to a healthier, more abundant environment.


In 1954, Walter and Elisabeth Giesswein knit their first sweater in their home with the hopes of sharing their passion for wool with friends and family. Three generations later, the Giesswein family hasn’t lost sight of the Austrian heritage that informs and inspires each unique design to this day.
