meet the wool& team
Hailing everywhere from California to Michigan, our team is small but skillful. We share a lot of laughs in the office, take team lunch (very seriously) together every other Tuesday, and take turns walking our resident Bernese Mountain Dog, Rainbow. I asked the team questions regarding some of their favorite things, and learned a lot in return. We thought you might like to see who’s behind the brand. Read to learn a little bit about what the team does on day-to-day basis, and some personal facts about each of them.
Mac is our merino-loving founder. He does a little bit of everything: strategy, marketing, operations, human resources, and finance. Mac spends most of his time collaborating with and supporting each wool& team member.

Favorite restaurant or meal you’ve experienced?
I've been lucky enough to enjoy some excellent meals around the world, but right now, the best meals are simple, home-cooked food with friends and meaningful conversations, and a glass of wine.

Meg (Communications Specialist) handles all things related to communications. She oversees the customer support team, manages social media content, writes copy, and works the showroom. And she works it hard.
Favorite vacation destination?
Seely Lake, Montana. My dad grew up learning how to swim there. I loved swimming in the glacier-cold water, sitting by the campfire, fishing, and hiking around the nearby trails.
Cup of coffee, or tea?
The old me would say coffee, but it makes me feel nuts now. I enjoy english breakfast tea with milk and lots of honey, or boba.
