Behind the Seams: The Craftsmanship of Walter Sky

In a world where clothing often leans towards the transient and impractical, Walter Sky seeks to stand out with its commitment to minimalism, innovation, and unmatched quality. Co-founded by brothers and avid adventurers Nathan and Wesley Andersen, Walter Sky was born from a simple yet profound desire: to create a wardrobe that transcends traditional limitations, performing seamlessly in various environments and climates. The secret ingredient in their success? Tireless craftsmanship. Let’s go behind the seams and explore what sets Walter Sky apart from the rest.



The Birth of Walter Sky

Designer and Founder Nathan Andersen’s journey to create Walter Sky began with a personal quest. Dissatisfied with the options available on the market, he started tailoring his own garments, aiming for pieces that could adapt to any setting. Over several years, Nathan worked closely with some of the most cutting-edge fabric mills, engineering a collection that combines performance and style in a way few others can match.


Elemental Design & Innovative Textiles

Walter Sky’s garments are a testament to the brand’s dedication to pushing the boundaries of textile innovation. Each piece undergoes rigorous research, engineering, and testing to ensure it meets the highest standards of quality and performance.



Nuyarn®: Redefining Merino Wool

One of the standout fabrics in Walter Sky’s collection is Nuyarn®, a revolutionary take on merino wool. Unlike traditional methods, Nuyarn technology drafts fibers along a high-performance core, enhancing the natural properties of the wool. The result? Garments that are stronger, stretchier, quicker drying, and warmer gram-for-gram than any merino base layer you’ve ever worn. Pieces like the WS-MT01, WS-MH01, and WS-MH02, along with all of our socks, showcase the incredible potential of Nuyarn®.



CEBONNER: High Functionality Meets Comfort

The WS-T01 features CEBONNER, a spun nylon yarn that offers a cotton-like touch and high functionality. Developed using Toray’s proprietary spinning technology, CEBONNER enhances comfort and durability, making it suitable for both active sports and casual fashion.



Thread Monsieur: Odor Extinguishing Innovation

Thread Monsieur, used in the WS-T01 and WS-T02, is an odor-extinguishing thread from Toray. It neutralizes ammonia, the root cause of sweat odor, ensuring that the garments remain fresh no matter how many times they’re washed. This innovative thread captures and eliminates odor, rather than merely masking it.



Dot Air Primeflex: Stretch & Recovery Redefined

Garments like the WS-B02 and WS-S01 benefit from Toray’s Dot Air Primeflex fabric, which features a patented spiral yarn technology. This allows for greater stretch and recovery without relying on heavy elastics, resulting in lightweight, breathable, and high-performance clothing.



Kudos DWR Treatment: Ultimate Protection

The Kudos DWR Treatment — applied to the WS-B02, WS-S01, and WS-J02 — offers abrasion resistance and repellency against both water and oil. This treatment ensures that Walter Sky garments can withstand harsh conditions while maintaining their impeccable appearance.


3DeFX+: Comfort Control in Motion

The WS-J02 incorporates 3DeFX+™ insulation technology, a next-generation package solution from Toray. This technology combines 3D insulation material with stretch fabric and special stitching techniques, offering warmth and freedom of movement. The spiral-shaped fibers provide high heat retention while remaining lightweight and compact, ensuring comfort during varying activity levels and climates.


Sustainability at the Core

Walter Sky’s commitment to sustainability is evident in its partnership with bluesign®, an organization dedicated to ensuring environmentally friendly and resource-efficient practices. By working with bluesign® system partners, when possible, Walter Sky ensures that every step of their material supply chain upholds the highest standards of safety and sustainability.
