About Johnson Woolen Mills
A Tradition Of Quality...
Lead by Stacy Barrows Manosh, the fourth generation owner of Johnson Woolen Mills, traditions of quality, pride and hard work continue as handed down by her great-grandfather, grandfather and her dad. The company's modern manufacturing facility is just feet from the original mill, which serves as a reminder to Stacey and the entire staff of the longevity and commitment to quality Johnson Woolen Mills brings to each product and every customer. Traditional processes still remain at the mill such as, hand cutting, sewing, piecing, serging, and finishing of our traditionally patterned, checked, and plaid clothing lines.
Ingenuity and Environmentally Conscious...
From the very first day of operation, nearly 200 years ago, Johnson Woolen Mills understood the meaning of no waste. Every piece of wool, every stitch, every string and every shipping pallet had a value for the factory, it's customers or the staff. On the production line, a garment starts at one end of a room the size of a football field and is passes up the line of woolen and tailoring specialists, each of them bringing special talents to the construction of Johnson Woolen Mill products, while paying close attention not to waste a single piece of fabric. "We have our own way of cutting and sewing garments and a lot of people would like to know exactly how we do it", said Del Barrows, the mills third generation owner and father to Stacy. While many companies find themselves changing processes to help the environment, Johnson Woolen Mills uses time tested traditions of frugality and good business sense to be sure nothing is wasted at the mill. Material extras are used for mittens, fanny packs, flasks, wool rugs and other accessories, additional materials are sourced to local "cottage-industry" tailors and owners that freelance for the mill from their homes. The small scraps that are left over are bagged and carefully marked to be recycled, garneted and reused for woolen fabric, yarn or insulating products the world over.

I've been wearing Johnson Wool for most of my life and have only wore out one. My son is wearing one that I got 30 years ago and it still looks like new. My current green and black shirt jac has seen better days
I love their products. The patterns are very eye catching and the quality is very high. They are also very popular in Japan.
I bought two of the warmest, greatest, most enjoyable to wear coats I own from Johnson Woolen Mills in Vermont. I live in Texas, which is a lot warmer than what I consider the "Frozen North" where these coats are made, but I still get cold, and when I do there is nothing I like more than pulling one one of their big, well insulated coats.
