About The Mill

Faribault Wool Mill

THERE ARE THINGS WOVEN INTO THIS BLANKET 
THAT COULD NEVER BE CAPTURED ON A LABEL.

Today, in a historic mill nestled along the banks of the Cannon River in Minnesota, a 147-year-old story is still being woven.

Here you’ll find wool blankets, throws, and accessories being made with proudly-maintained standards that stretch back to 1865.

And while our products are current and forward thinking, the techniques and machinery used to make them are virtually unchanged - now in the hands of a fifth generation of craftspeople who, each day, weave luxurious fibers and American pride together into something very special.

Perhaps it’s this history that gives Faribault Woolen Mill its long-view perspective about how a company should be run and how products should be made to perform. Perhaps it’s also what inspired a new generation of family owners to revive the tradition and machines that had recently lain dormant for two years - revitalizing a community and creating a new sense of purpose - reestablishing our heritage and combining it with an optimistic focus on the future.

Our mission is not to make precious items available to only a select few. Instead we make globally competitive products accessible to all, from a 100% American mill, producing goods from start to finish under one roof.

Our products offer a simple beauty and a durability of purpose that’s not unlike the people who make them - with intangible ingredients woven into them that could never be captured on a label. The result is fine woven goods that are destined to be family heirlooms for generations to come. Wrap yourself in something genuine.
