These designers and many others who emphasize sustainable fashion are incorporating a variety of O~Wool fabrics. VTOF is the nation's leading provider of Merino wool fabrics made with wool grown and certified to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) national organic program standard.

My customers are amazed by the great quality, colors, texture, and variety of organic wool fabrics they have never seen before," said New York City-based Susan Woo, who used O~Wool suiting and twill fabrics to create a powerful line of cocktail dresses, blouses, skirts, and blazers. A photo of her O~Wool cocktail dress will be in the December issue of Vogue magazine.

"We are excited that more designers than ever before are using O~Wool in their collections," said Matthew Mole, president of Vermont Organic Fiber Company, noting that "the use of O~Wool by all these top designers shows that fashion and environmental sustainability easily go hand-in-hand." Mole will be presenting October 20-22, 2009, at the Organic Exchange Sustainable Textiles conference in Seattle, WA.

And Whitten Grey's designer Brittney Davenport uses the beautiful O~Wool melton fabric for a jumper and party dress sold direct as well as at boutiques around world.
