Product Information


The Faribault Woolen Mill started making blankets for the US military in the 1890’s, a tradition they proudly continue today.  Their Foot Soldier blankets use the same sturdy construction they created for the US military around 1917.  The US Navy Gray blanket is an even more traditional version of the blanket they still make for service on US Navy ships. Rugged, enduring, it will serve you well.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS:   With a little care, Faribault Woolens will last for generations.  Wool is the original miracle fiber.  It’s naturally stain, wrinkle and water-resistant, so Faribault wool products rarely need cleaning.  In fact the best way to refresh your woolens is the natural way:  Simply shake or gently brush the woolens and hang them outdoors.

Machine wash cold, separately, on a gentle cycle.  A gentle cleaning agent designed for wool is recommended.  Side load washing machines are the gentlest.  Tumble dry low, removing promptly when dry.  Line drying is also recommended, taking care to rotate the woolen to prevent stretching.  Iron only on low, only if necessary.  Do not use fabric softener, as it can increase pilling.  Do not bleach.

The Faribault Woolen Mill Co. label pays tribute to their 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.
