Frequently Asked Questions

1. Do you have a retail store?

Yes! Come visit our showroom in Mammoth Lakes, California:
Ridge Merino Co.

325 Old Mammoth Rd
Mammoth Lakes, CA 93546  

2. Why do your Merino wool products cost less than other companies with similar products? 

Ridge sells direct, cutting out the retailers, to provide the same (or better) quality Merino wool apparel at a more affordable price - sometimes up to 50% less than brands with similar products.  

3. How should I care for my Ridge Merino wool?

Ridge garments are intended to be low-maintenance. When they are ready to be cleaned, simply throw them in the washing machine, wash with normal detergent and line dry (don’t worry, Merino wool dries fast) or tumble dry on low. For a complete list of care instructions, please click here.

4. How do I determine my size in Ridge clothes? 

Please consult our men's and women's size charts to determine your size.
5. How do I make a return and / or exchange? 
All of our products are backed by the Ridge Guarantee. If you are not happy for any reason, simply return your purchase with proof of purchase to receive an exchange, repair, or refund. See our return policy for more information or contact customer service to process a return.
6. Can I checkout with my Amazon account rather than signing up for a Ridge account?
Yes! We get may have a ton of accounts already or are simply in a hurry so we now offer Pay with Amazon. This allows you to login to your Amazon account from our shopping cart to pay rather than creating a Ridge account.

8. Your product line seems limited. Will there be more products soon? 

Yes! We are a small privately-funded company, so we need to keep our product offering very focused. We are currently developing new products, and we're always interested in your ideas. Hit us up and let us know if there's something you'd like to see.      

9. Are Ridge Merino products good for activities beyond snow sports? 

Yes - in addition to skiing and snowboarding, our Ridge ambassadors love our stuff for all types of outdoor activities - from backpacking, to camping, climbing; fishing, yoga, mountain biking, trail running... the list goes on. Our Merino wool apparel is also awesome for travel because it is lightweight, comfortable, versatile and can go so much longer between washes due to its anti-stink qualities. Trust us. Wear it on a long-haul flight and see how fresh you feel afterwards.

10. Do you offer discounts for forest service, ski patrol or other outdoor service professions? 

We do! Contact us at to find out more.

All over! Find us on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest

We are proud to contribute to organizations like Waterkeeper AllianceProtect Our Winters, the Breast Cancer Fund and more.
