The Faribault Woolen Mill celebrates 150 years of keeping us warm. By Lisa Rounds

20  LIVE | PLAY | AAA

tanding in the expertly styled retail store inside the Faribault Woolen Mill’s 19th-century building, I listened as the equally stylish store manager, Jana Woodside, told the company’s remarkable story. From its origins as a one-horse mill founded the year Lincoln died to its 1960s and ’70s heyday— when it produced about half the country’s blankets—the mill is indeed a living testament to American craftsmanship. As the country’s last fully integrated vertical mill, it also offers a rare opportunity to witness the end-to-end process, from raw wool to finished product, all under one roof and right in our backyard. Less than an hour’s drive from the Twin Cities, the store alone is worth the trip, with its mix of classic plaids and cool new designs. But to miss out on the free factory tour (offered weekly) is to miss the point of this 150-year-old legacy brand. Waiting to be led into the bowels of the mill, I spied some cleverly displayed cards with taglines such as George Clooney chose our West Point Foot Soldier Blanket for his gift to the cast of “Monuments Men.” In a time when much of what we buy is made in sweatshops in Asia, I especially appreciated the irony of my guide’s first story about the new owners, cousins Chuck and Paul Mooty, who swept in and bought the company in the nick of time. It was 2011, and most of the priceless antique machinery, which is no longer manufactured, was ticketed to be sold and shipped off to a mill in Pakistan.
