Faribault Woolen Mill Co.
Nestled on the banks of the Cannon River in Minnesota, the Faribault Woolen Mill Co. has been crafting quality American–made blankets since 1865. Today, the mill employs about 50 workers, some of whom have been there for over 40 years. We worked with the family–owned company to design a collection of pure wool blankets and pillows. "These pieces blend Faribault's storied heritage with west elm's clean, contemporary style," says creative director John Mooty.
Faribault is one of the only purely domestic woolen producers in the country.
