Centralia Knitting Mills was established just before Germany invaded Poland. With a short supply of knitting machines and too little wool thread, they still managed to survive WWII. Today, their problems have less to do with supply, and more to do with demand. More popular overseas in Japan than in the U.S., Centralia have nevertheless continued their long tradition of quality and attention to detail to this very day. Specializing in sweaters and jackets, this third-generation family business is one of the last companies that continues to hand-make chenille patches with wool. With the long-overdue resurgence in the popularity of 100% virgin wool garments, we expect Centralia to lead the way in providing a new generation of sportsmen with their time-proven quality.
