White version of 58-021?

A home owner from Lancaster Ohio says:

My windows are 1999 CareFree windows. They appear to have 3/16 X 3/16 white wool pile. The wool pile seems to have a sealing fin in the center. Do you offer a white wool pile that has the sealing fin or is it only offered in the gray? Does this sealing fin really offer more protection? Mine all seem to be crushed in one direction and doesn't seem to be doing much good. Actually it seems to maybe prevent some of the wool pile from doing anything.

Thank you

Thanks for posting. WE have our 58-002, which is white and comes in 3/16" x 3/16". It just has no fin seal. The 58-127 is white and has a fin seal, but it's slightly off at 3/16" x 1/4". Could that one work for you?

The fin sometimes provides a better seal, yes, but in windows that aren't made to accommodate this kind of wool pile, it can cause friction enough to make the windows harder to open and close.
