If you are passionate about wool products, enjoy dynamic growth environments and want to be part of a small team, this could be the role you have been searching for.

About Duckworth:

Duckworth is a Montana source-verified wool company that uses 100% Helle Rambouillet Merino wool, processed and built 100% in the USA. Duckworth makes its own goods from its own Helle Rambouillet Merino, it does not source it. This is increasingly important as wool now travels farther than ever before it meets your body. Duckworth wool fibers travel from Montana to the Carolinas (once a world powerhouse for textiles) for spinning, knitting and sewing to strict standards, creating an impeccable final product. At Duckworth, knowing and using what’s in our own backyard is what really counts. Resurrecting the lost art and craft of American wool is our objective. #SheeptoShelf
