Woolly Winter

WE Wool 5Good Morning Lacquered Lifers! As fall is officially upon us, and winter is quickly approaching I wanted to introduce everyone to some wool pillows, throws, and blankets that can keep you warm through those winter months … especially if the winter is anything like last year. This is a new collaboration between West Elm and the Faribault Woolen Mill Co. in Faribault, Minnesota. WE Wool 10The Faribault Woolen Mill Co. has been in operation in the town of Faribault since 1865. Through two world wars when they made blankets for the troops, a great depression, and the passage of time, this mill has continued to employ locals and to manufacture high quality wool products including blankets, scarves, pillows, and even i Pad cases. This is America’s last true vertical wool mill. The “new” mill, as the company refers to it on their website, was built in 1890 and is still in use today.
WE Wool 4Not surprisingly, this collaboration with West Elm has the Faribault Co. putting out blankets, pillows, and throws with some very modern looking patterns. These are not your traditional plaid wool blankets. Available in a range of colors and patterns there is sure to be something to keep you warm this winter. WE Wool 9Above are three of my favorites from the Faribault Woolen Mill Co.’s collection for West Elm – Large Stripe Wool Pillow Cover, the Window Plaid Wool Blanket, & the Shadow Plaid Wool Throw.
