Wool-It – literally, a pile of wool that you slide between your toes or slip into your socks – prevents blisters and helps with hot spot management.
This simple, light, and natural moisture-wicking remedy was developed by Katey Lane. After impulsively deciding to hike the Camino de Santiago, she realized she would need something to prevent blisters. Rather than carrying 4 weeks worth of sub-par and expensive stick on products, she decided to try using wool. Amazingly, she finished the journey – and with intact feet!
Wool-It is sourced form the South Island of New Zealand's Corriedale sheep. These sheep live in a temperate climate where they are out in grassy pastures year round, which produces a resilient wool free of dust, dirt and thistles.
I love this shop! I am a repeat offender. Such an easy process to purchase items here. I love to use the “filter” button to narrow down what I need, whether it is a brand or an item under $20. I honestly think you could outfit yourself for a hike just thru this site- so cool! Quick shipping and my favorite part … I love getting my personalized note from GGG crew members. Such an awesome touch. Keep up the amazing job GGG!!🧡
Hands-, feet-, head-, whatever- down, simply the best. You just can't do much better than GGG. The positivity is welcomed and infectious. From the descriptions of the products, the interactions on emails, the little notes on the receipts, the fast service, the QUALITY of the products... I have only good vibes for these guys. And I must have about 5 of those teeny tiny toothbrushes :-D Cheers!!!
Garage Grown Gear is such a wonderful shop for any ultralight backpacking enthusiast looking to support small companies! Their staff are so friendly and helpful, they ship very quickly, and they always have awesome gear from awesome little companies. They also provide all kinds of helpful information and fun reading materials in their newsletters. I recommend this place to all of my friends and I recommend them to you as well!
