VOORMI® Partners with the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation With a Focus on Conservation, VOORMI Unveils Fall 2016 Concealment Apparel Line

Pagosa Springs, CO (Sept 14, 2016) — VOORMI®, an innovator of domestically sourced
Precision Blended Wool fabrics and apparel, is proud to partner with the sportsman conversation
group the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation (RMEF) for the company’s Fall 2016 concealment
apparel collection. With a focus on conservation of both natural western landscapes and healthy
game populations, VOORMI will contribute a portion of revenue from the sale of the collection to
further RMEF’s efforts.

For over 30-­years the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation has been the nation’s premier organization
protecting key elk habitat and advocating for sound hunting management. All together RMEF has
protected or enhanced over 6.8 million acres of elk habitat and has worked to help restore wild
elk populations to areas of Kentucky, Missouri, North Carolina, Ontario, Tennessee, Virginia, and

“At VOORMI, we’ve always looked at how our company can positively impact rural mountain
communities and real people,” commented VOORMI CEO and Founder Dan English, “Hunting is
as much as part of our DNA as skiing and fly-­fishing, which is why it makes us very proud to
partner with the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.”

The new Fall 2016 concealment apparel collection features VOORMI’s proprietary and award-­
winning PHASE-­Sc™ Technology;; a unique yarn blending technology that precisely locates
colored yarns to create a biomimicry pattern in the fabric. VOORMI’s PHASE-­Sc™ Technology
creates a concealment pattern one thread at a time and results in a softer, quieter garment with
significantly less light reflectivity than printed patterns. VOORMI’s PHASE-­Sc™ Technology is a
color-­blend technology that works in concert with the company’s other fabric technologies that
enhance the wool’s durability, odor-­resistance, weather resistance, and moisture wicking
properties. For a limited time, specific pieces from this collection will be co-­branded with RMEF.


PHASE-­Sc™ Precision Blended Wool Technology is available in three styles:
