    I've bought a couple of LL Bean Jackets online.
    Both have the wool lining, but one is smooth and soft and the other is in clumps (for lack of better term) and kind of stiff.
    Wondering what might have been done to the clumpy one to make it that way? Is there any way to undo the clumping? Thought maybe someone tried to wash it?
    Thanks for any help!

    So if the "clumpy" one is the second one (I like that term by the way) I think that is the way they were supposed to be. I know I've run into both in LL Bean and other jackets. My folks are huge LL Bean fans, I am less so, but I think there is nothing wrong with it.

    If it bothers you, try a dry cleaner, or reach out to LL Bean directly. I am sure they would be able to help you.

    Thanks - yes the second one is the clumpy one. That’s a good idea - I’ll ask ll bean about it.

    Also wondering if maybe those made in Turkey could be different than those in USA?

    They both say 100% and I did find some pics of one made in Turkey that look just like the one I have that was made in the USA, so I don’t think that is the answer.

    I have a couple of those slicker brushes for my dog, but I don’t think I’d dare try it on my jacket judging by how much fur it takes out of my dog.
