The robust Isle of Skye boatmen off the western coast of Scotland required rugged   woolen sweaters for their adventures and arduous seafaring work.  Out of necessity and ingenuity they devised a method of boiling their already world-renowned Scottish wool in an effort to make their sweaters not only resistant to the bracing Scottish climate, but also a softer and impervious wool that today remains highly sought after and difficult to produce.
  
Our Skye Boatman Boil® of fine merino wool is boiled and felted using their ancient process, but modernized, resulting in a more compact, denser wool that resists wind and water and is soft to the touch.

    

Rob Roy MacGregor Buffalo Plaid meets our Buffalo Leathers. Our hand selected Free   Range Buffalo hides produce a very durable and pliable leather with unique patinas and a strength not found in ordinary leather.  BraeVal uses hand selected Buffalo hides in our vests, overshirts, and jackets.

    

Shepherd‘s Tweed will serve you well in the field or on the town.  We traveled to the UK to develop our Shepherd’s Tweed from sheep that live in the harshest climate.  Woven in a traditional woolen 15 ounces per yard herringbone superior wicking, wind protection. All natural fibers spun and woven in the British Isles the old fashion way makes our Shepherd’s Tweed an heirloom quality piece generational in value.  Each BraeVal Shepherd’s Tweed is hand cut, and tailored for an active fit in the traditional way using only the finest Tweed and trimmings, milled and woven in the British Isles.

    

Scottish seafarers created the first waxed cotton fabric in the late 1700s by applying fish oil and grease to their garments making them impervious to the bracing Scottish elements.  Today, BraeVal sources STORM GLEN wax cotton from the world’s only vertically integrated Mill which weaves and treats their cotton fabric with a proprietary waxing method.

STORM GLEN wax cotton has reached its pinnacle in the form of BraeVal garments!  STORM GLEN wax cotton is impregnated process with a unique formulation of various waxes that provide lifelong resistance to inclement weather.  This proprietary blend of   waxes impart a high degree of water repellency, low temperature flexibility, high-melt-point, unique patinas, and perfect drape.  This all adds to the extreme durability of waxed cotton.   Over time, you will see and feel the unique patinas and individual   character that BraeVal and STORM GLEN wax cotton impart.
