At Cuddledown, we are thrilled to partner with Ramblers Way, which produces Ramblers Way Farm-logosuperfine wool comfortwear entirely made in the USA. Ramblers Way’s owners Tom and Kate Chappell (former owners of Tom’s of Maine), selected Cuddledown to be their exclusive online retailer because as Tom Chappell said, “We are proud to partner with a company making products here in Maine which shares many of the same values we do.”

“We were pleased when Tom approached us,” said Cuddledown President Chris Bradley. “The Ramblers Way collection is all about comfort and quality, and those are precisely the things our customers love about Cuddledown products. The luxurious feeling, yet easy-care fabric, plus the understated stylishness of the apparel’s design make Ramblers Way a great fit for our apparel line.”

Ramblers Way’s products are available online at and some are also offered through our Cuddledown retail store located in Freeport, Maine.

The Chappells’ comfortwear garments are grown and sewn in the USA from superfine wool from Rambouillet sheep on their farm in Kennebunk, Maine as well as wool from their partner farms in the western US.  The 18.5 micron wool is spun so fine, you really aren’t aware what you’re wearing is in fact, wool – it’s just that soft, lightweight and breathable.

Ramblers Way’s devotion to sustainability and the environment extends to the very colors they use in their comfortwear garments. The rich colors are developed from the dried extracts of plants, like indigo, red madder, osage, logwood and pomegranate. The process of using these dyes requires hands-on, artisan care and results in a truly unique piece of clothing. It’s beautiful, colorfast, and easy on the environment.

Quality, sustainability and made in the USA – the three words Tom Chappell uses to describe his products, perfectly illustrate the collaboration between Cuddledown and Ramblers Way.
