It takes 22 steps and at least 12 people to craft a Faribault Woolen Mill blanket from start to finish. Sometimes during that process, we make mistakes. When these mistakes are identified during our production and inspection processes, the item which has the mistake is tagged as a “Factory Second.” While these Factory Seconds don’t make the cut as “first quality” they are still made of the same high-quality wool fabric as our “first quality” products. Some of the most common blemishes that make an item a factory second are off-size and miss-weaves. A more complete list is below in the Frequently Asked Questions.
