Needing help identifying proper weatherstrip to order

A quick learner from USA says:
Hi Swisco Customer Care,

I am trying to install new weatherstrip on a commercial door.

There is a Wool pile weather stripping on the back of the door against the frame. The bottom of the wool pile that goes into the frame channel is 1/4" The current height of the pile is 1/4", but likely needs to be higher than that, in that it is crushed from age.

I have included photos of this weatherstrip.

I am going to send a second e-mail with the other weatherstrip we need to identify in order to keep the two different pieces straight.

Thanks for posting, John. Can you remeasure for me? 1/4" x 1/4" might be a little too broad. Wool pile like this tends to have more specific dimensions, going even into the 1/32" range. I know that it's old and beat up, so it may be hard to measure, but please try your best and get back to me. In the meantime, I recommend browsing through our wool pile section to find a good match here.
