As synthetic hunting clothing gets lighter, thinner, and warmer, it's tempting to regard wool as outmoded. However, sheep spent millions of years perfecting it for your benefit, and wool has a couple of qualities that I have yet to see any synthetic match--it's really, truly quiet, and oh boy, is it tough.
Anyhow, are wool pants good for hunting?
Wool pants are great for hunting. They are durable, effective, and fully breathable. ... Although not all expensive products are better, with wool pants, cheaper products do tend to be less durable.

Apart from that, how do you wash wool hunting clothes?
Hand wash with Woolite in cold water rinse well and drape to dry. Do not machine wash or use anything but cold water. Do not use a dryer or you will be disappointed.
Which is better Sitka or KUIU?
Sitka's stuff is far more resilient and better for people who are rough on gear. However, many hunters we surveyed claimed that KUIU had some of the most comfortable gear that they've ever worn, likely because of how lightweight it is.

Ultra Warm Red Buffalo Plaid Wool Hunting Cold Weather Hat Baseball Cap with Ear Flaps to Size 2X Made in Canada (X-Large)
1 | Realtree Timber. The latest Realtree camo pattern on the market is Realtree Timber. Primarily designed for duck hunting, it's proven to be an extremely effective deer hunting pattern, too. Just look how well it blends with the timber setting and the guy doesn't even have back cover.
Wool garments should be washed on the wool setting (usually gentle action at 40°C). If your washing machine does not have a wool cycle, use the cold water wash or wash cycle for delicates. Use a neutral, mild detergent that is preferably Woolmark recommended (look for the Woolmark symbol on the packet).
Absolutely! All you need to do is look at the Sitka website. ... sitka is expensive for hunting clothing but not really expensive when compared to mountaineering clothing. I have a Mountain Hardware dwr treated climbing jacket that was $280 - its basically the same as the sitka 90% jacket, material and all.
It may be a little more expensive but it's definitely worth it, the camo pattern on the sitka gear is so much more advanced that the KUIU. Plus in my opinion, Sitka is way more durable, comfortable, and warm. Customer service sucks . I always end up back to Sitka when I can afford it or First Lite.
