We are thrilled to be offering Faribault Woolen Mills products this Christmas season.  We honor those family-owned businesses that have survived for generations!

With the loss of 650 American textile mills between 1997 and 2009, it is difficult for our makers to find American-made textiles to use in their products.  At Makers Market, we try extra hard to find products made of textiles woven in USA mills. Why?  Not only will you be supporting the end maker, but also the rancher who raised the sheep, the farmer who grew the cotton, and the mill workers.

FARIBAULT WOOLEN MILLS – ESTABLISHED IN 1865

heritage slider #1 (1865-1901)

Founded on the banks of the Cannon River in Faribault, MN, 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.

Treat yourself to the video of their Heritage here.

FARIBAULT 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 one of the last vertical woolen mills in America.”

THE MILL

Today, in a historic mill nestled along the Cannon River in Minnesota, a nearly 150-year-old story is still being woven. The Faribault Woolen Mill endures as one of the last vertical woolen mills in America. Here, fifth generation craftspeople take raw wool and create blankets, throws, scarves and accessories of remarkable comfort and quality. Irreplaceable century-old machinery stands side by side with modern technology in our “new” mill, which was built in 1892.
