Faribault Woolen Mill Co., which has crafted timeless, purposeful products since 1865 in Faribault, Minnesota, launches the Fall 2018 collection, which marks a broad revitalization of the brand, including the launch of a new website, and a new retail store in the heart of the downtown Minneapolis. Fall 2018's new throws, blankets, scarves and accessories, feature classic colors and patterns, upgraded construction, and collaboration products with other maker brands.
The Fall 2018 release, inspired by Faribault's rich history and a continuation of the brand's reputation for timeless designs, is one of the largest new product releases since the brand relaunched in 2011. This collection introduces a deeper, richer color palette, expanded use of merino wool, and innovative design. Many products incorporate heavier gauge yarns providing a softer, loftier feel and richer textures. These products are designed to be enjoyed everywhere – from the home to the campfire, the line is inspired by purposeful products, connecting people with life's most memorable moments.
Faribault's products are made in one of the last vertical woolen mills in America, and the company's rich heritage is evident in every product. Highlights from the collection include:
"Fall's new products build on our rich heritage and our relentless efforts to carry forward Faribault's legacy. The products are rugged and durable, built to be used and enjoyed. They're designed with timeless qualities, rich colors, heathered yarns and an increased focus on texture. Our products are a nod to Faribault Woolen Mill's deeply rooted history," said Faribault CEO, Tom Kileen. "Use of our products outside the home – hiking, camping, backpacking – is something we're particularly excited about. It's a thrill to see people enjoying Faribault products wherever they go."
The new collection follows the recent opening of Faribault's brand new brick-and-mortar location in downtown Minneapolis, located at 1029 S Washington Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55415. The store is an exciting Twin Cities-based extension of the brand's mill store in Faribault, Minnesota. Faribault also launched a brand new website in August, which offers a modern take on this classic American lifestyle brand, including a refreshed presentation of the e-commerce platform.
All products from the Fall 2018 Collections are available for purchase at www.faribaultmill.com.
