Faribault Wool Blankets




For many generations, the Faribault Woolen Mill Company has grown and thrived as a business. Since 1865, the year Lincoln died and the Civil War ended, Faribault has played a part in history. Whether traveling in covered wagons with the frontier movement West, covering our troops during the war years, or providing warmth for those in need, Faribault blankets and woolen products have been woven into the fabric of American history. The Cannon River meanders throughout the countryside that surrounds the Faribault Mill. While it now offers many recreational opportunities for canoeing, fishing, hiking, camping, or picnicking, many grain and flower mills once used its water as a source of power. The Faribault Mill moved next to the river in 1890, and although steam had taken the place of water-generated power, the mill used the river water to wash its wool. In the past years, the mill drew water from the river, filtering and softening it, then using it to wash wool. Though its function has changed, the Cannon River has been an integral part of our history and it reminds us of the strength and endurance that this company has celebrated for the past years.
