Wool Blankets & Throws

American History

These heirloom quality, 100% pure wool blankets are stain-, wrinkle-, and water-resistant—and Made in the USA. And they’re made to last for years and years.

For five generations, the Faribault Mill has spun together a tight knit community of craftspeople that take the raw wool and transform it into high quality blankets.

Minnesotan mill been around for over 150 years—using some of the same techniques and machinery that made 250,000 blankets for soldiers during WWII.

The wool they use has active properties that react and adapt to changes in your body temperature. It warms you up if you’re cold and releases heat and moisture when you’re hot.

Propelled by a legacy of careful craftsmanship, Faribault blankets will be keeping your family warm for years to come.

    My dad was a WWII and Korean War Veteran. I remember that dark green blanket so well. It was scratchy but the warmest thing ever. My dad died in 2008 and he still had the blanket. I'm going to order a blanket. I'll think of my dad every time I use it.

    Thanks for jogging this memory.

    I'd love to have a large blanket, but not in white! Where can a find a useful blanket in darker colors that won't show the dirt?

    Hi, I was a U. S. Marine from '69 thru '73 and the U.S. Blankets we were issued were of extreme quality and durability. I had no idea where they came from or who made them. So now I know and I want to thank you all for taking the time and skills to provide a great comfort to all of us Veterans from my fathers time in North Korea above the 38th Parallel, all my Uncles in the South Pacific during WW II and us of the Vietnam war. Thank You. Semper Fi !

    We think that all these stories are great and appreciate you sharing with us.

    Many thanks. Since I was in the Army, I never really used the Semper Fi, but understand it and appreciate what it means.

    Have someone edit your copy. I think you wanted a tight "knit" community...

    I always wanted one of these, will order soon.

    Do they feel "scratchy" or is it a soft wool? Meaning, would you want it right on your skin or prefer something between?

    Same question here!

    Lisa, the Ashby Twill and The Weekender styles are made with merino wool which is a bit "softer". The other styles are a heavier wool that some people consider "scratchy".

    I use my Ashby twill to warm me up on those cooler evenings and just "throw" it over my jeans and it is perfect.

    Hope this helps.
