Our Heritage

Our Label: Sewn Into History



Our label pays tribute to our history, incorporating the Faribault Woolen Mill’s traditional marks and messages. It is your assurance of quality and comfort from America’s last true vertical woolen mill.

 

ESTABLISHED IN 1865

Founded on the banks of the Cannon River in Faribault, Minnesota the Faribault Woolen Mill is a living testament to American craftsmanship. Founded in 1865, the year Lincoln died and the Civil War ended, Faribault woolens are renowned for their comfort and quality. From providing woolen blankets for pioneers heading west to comforting our troops through two world wars, our woolens are woven into American history.
