Store History

  • Founded: 1865
  • Headquarters: Faribault, Minnesota

Founded in 1865, Faribault Woolen Mill is a historic mill that lies along the banks of the Cannon River in Minnesota. Today the craftspeople are using the same techniques and machinery to create wool blankets, throws and accessories that were used 148 years ago.

Faribault's blankets and throws are offered in a range of colors and patterns. One of their best sellers is the SoHo (short for stuff on hand only – with a nod to their favorite part of Manhattan); it was created in 2008 when the mill was at the brink of going out of business and a mill designer was directed to create a salable throw using remnant yarns salvaged from the mill's dwindling inventory.

1. SoHo Throw, $135
2. Lodge Stripe Throw, $135
3. Cabin Blanket, $225
4. Ticking Stripe Blanket, $145
