Wool pile weatherstripping for vinyl windows

A quick learner from Marion, Massachusetts says:
Hi, I need to replace the weatherstripping on my windows, and it seems that the existent weatherstripping has a base of 0.25" wide but, the pile that faces the outside is taller ( 5/16" ) than the pile around the window facing the window frame (0.25" ).
I have 17 windows, 2 panes per window.
Each pane takes 2 segments of 27" each on both sides of the window, totaling 108" of 1/4" base x 1/4" pile.
Each pane also takes 25 " of what it seems to me to be : 1/4" base x 5/16" pile.
Neither has the fin-seal in the center of the pile.
Would you be able to help me find the right match for my windows?
I am attaching some photos.
Thank you very much for your help .

Check out our 58-022 wool pile for the 1/4" high sample and our 58-126 for the 5/16" high sample. What do you think of these suggestions?

Thanks you,
I think I am going to try the 5/16" wool pile on one of the windows and see if the window slides smoothly. I prefer the fuller and taller wool pile if it works well .

Thanks again-
