Scottish Lambswool

Scottish Lambswool

Content: 100% Wool

Origin: Scotland


Geelong lambswool is the finest and most sought-after wool in the world. Spun in Scotland with yarn made from a specialty breed of Merino sheep in Geelong, Australia, our Vertical Stripe sweater is knit “out-of-gauge” to give it the weight and look of traditional Shetland, but significantly softer. It’s finished with bright stripes against classic navy for a style that’s both minimalist and idiosyncratic.

Sea Island Cotton Moleskin

Sea Island Cotton Moleskin

Content: 100% Cotton

Origin: Italy

Weight: 450 GSM


Grown in the West Indies and woven in Italy, the extra-long silken fibers of Sea Island Cotton create an incredibly smooth finish. Not only is this small-production cotton the softest in existence, but it’s also the most durable and resistant, which aligns with the Noah ethos of luxury that isn’t precious. For our chore coat, we selected a moleskin version in a classic workwear silhouette. It needs to be felt to be believed.

Wool Silk Deep Pile

Wool Silk Deep Pile

Content: 84% Wool / 16% Silk

Origin: Italy

Weight: 990 GSM


When we saw this fabric, we couldn’t pass it up. This incredibly lofty wool/silk pile (990 grams per meter) is so impressive that we decided to go for it without knowing what we’d make with it. Produced by Loro Piana, one of the most prestigious fabric suppliers in the world, it’s not meant for casual wear. But we turned it into a hoodie anyway.

Wool Cashmere

Wool Cashmere

Content: 95% Wool / 5% Cashmere

Origin: United Kingdom

Weight: 320 GSM


Like your grandfather’s jacket but designed for today. The 95% wool/5% cashmere blend creates a cloth that’s both luxurious and durable. The weight (320 grams per meter) is rarely, if ever, used for suiting or jackets. It may look precious but it’s not. This cloth is intended for garments that can be used for any and all occasions.

Country Wool

Country Wool

Content: 100% Wool

Origin: United Kingdom

Weight: 525 GSM


Sourced from one of the last remaining vertical woolen mills in Great Britain, our Country Wool embodies all the tenets of the long-established fabric: strength, recovery, warmth. Simultaneously rustic and modern, the colorful marled texture is what makes this super-thick version (525 grams per meter) unique.

Utility Twill

Utility Twill

Content: 100% Cotton

Origin: Italy

Weight: 390 GSM


Traditional tartan prints in non-wool fabrics aren’t easy to come by, which is why we love this utility twill made from 100% densely woven cotton. It’s lightweight yet resilient, a material you might typically see in a dressy sports coat. We chose it for our classic bomber that’s fully lined for added resilience against the chill.

Printed Paisley Fleece

Printed Paisley Fleece

Content: 100% Cotton

Origin: Canada

Weight: 400 GSM


Our sweatshirt fleece is produced in North America using North American long-staple cotton, so it’s the real thing. A sweatshirt for sweatshirt lovers. But it’s not often you see allover prints like this one, at least not on high-quality sweatshirts, because finding a great cloth maker and great printer who can work together is rare. We learned that the hard way. These prints took over six months to get right.

Poplin Cotton

Poplin Cotton

Content: 100% Cotton

Origin: Portugal

Weight: 96 GSM


We don't often use the word "dress" to describe our clothes, but we’d consider this a dress-shirt fabric. The only catch is that we didn’t make this shirt for formal situations alone. It’s a lighter weight than many of our other shirts but just as durable, thanks to its high-yarn count and sturdy construction. The pattern is busy yet subdued—a feat most shirt makers seldom attempt anymore.

Fisherman Knit Wool

Fisherman Knit Wool

Content: 100% Wool

Origin: United Kingdom


We approached one of the oldest knitwear mills in the UK to make a Fisherman sweater that’s double the average weight. The super-tight knit creates a more tailored, less lofty silhouette, but not at the expense of the warmth and water-resistant utility these sweaters are known for. We chose black instead of the usual cream or navy for a slightly subversive take on a classic.

Loden Dense Wool

Loden Dense Wool

Content: 100% Wool

Origin: Germany

Weight: 510 GSM


Loden wool undergoes an elaborate wet finishing process to make it denser and tougher, then gets sheared and brushed for softness and water-resistance. The results are a stout, naturally wind-and-weather-proof fabric that’s been honed to a high level of comfort and elegance. Made in Austria where centuries ago it outfitted shepherds in the high Alps, our Loden wool weighs 510 grams per meter and delivers the hardiness of stiffer workwear in a more refined profile.

Econyl

Econyl

Content: 100% Nylon

Origin: Italy

Weight: 120 GSM


Infinitely recyclable, ECONYL® is synthetic waste, such as industrial plastic and fishing nets, recovered from landfills and oceans around the globe, then transformed into a nylon yarn. Not only is it sustainable, but it’s hard-wearing, resistant, and top quality. That’s why we chose it for our puffer coat, constructed to combat the most inclement weather while making a statement.

Chalk Stripe Wool

Chalk Stripe Wool

Content: 100% Wool

Origin: Scotland

Weight: 895 GSM


Traditionally, when you hear “chalk stripe,” you think of a business man’s suiting. While we can’t imagine wearing a chalk stripe suit, we love the classic pattern. So we decided to develop it into something more substantial: a winter coat. At 895 grams per meter, ours is a true outerwear cloth. The weight and density will stand the test of time and ensure comfort on the coldest days.

Heavyweight Flannel

Heavyweight Flannel

Content: 100% Cotton

Origin: Portugal

Weight: 310 GSM


Descended from Navy-issue CPO shirt-jackets, heavyweight flannels used to be easier to find, with vibrant plaid versions popular in the ‘60s and ‘70s. This double-sided, brushed twill is one of the best heavy flannels we’ve come across, because it offers the density of wool in an extremely soft cotton.

Wool Nylon

Wool Nylon

Content: 85% Wool / 15% Nylon

Origin: Italy

Weight: 500 GSM


We like fabrics with weight—and this wool/nylon is no different at 500 grams per meter. A cloth this heavy typically wouldn’t be used for pants because it’s closer to an outerwear weight. But the look and feel of it felt like a trouser to us. The addition of nylon makes them the toughest trousers you’ll ever own.

Leopard Corduroy

Leopard Corduroy

Content: 100% Cotton

Origin: United Kingdom

Weight: 470 GSM


Corduroy combines luxury and durability like no other material. Its modern form was developed as a more affordable alternative to velvet—a plain-weave fabric with dense rows of tufted loops that are sheared to create the same lustrous, soft pile. This leopard version contradicts the fabrics’ workwear and Ivy League past. Few patterns can be embraced by grandmas and youth at the same time. We love leopard print for its ability to transcend status and subcultures.
