We welcome to the Woody Boater family the ultimate winter sponsor and official Blankets and scarves of Woody Boater. Fellow long time Woody Boater “Rabbit” has become a a partner in the Faribault Woolen Mills in Minnesota. We can not be more excited to have them as part of our family here. As an owner of several of their blankets I can personally attest to the fact that these are the best and most authentic blankets out there. They match your boat perfectly and the feel of a Faribault Woolen scarf is amazing. By the way, scarfs are very trendy this year.
Now if you are thinking, hey I have a blanket or scarf I got at Cheapmart. You need to go outside and melt that sucker. These are American made wool they don’t melt.. But will melt the heart of your loved one!. We are going to ask the ACBS to deduct points if your blanket on your boat is from China. OK, maybe not, but I sure would like to. Maybe I just did? Anyway…..Below is some of history of the Mills, and after you read all about them, if you are interested in getting some nice Wool..Act now!
EVERYTHING IS 25% OFF RIGHT NOW THROUGH NEXT SATURDAY AS PART OF OUR BLACK FRIDAY/SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY/CYBER MONDAY SALE.
The Mills were founded in 1865 (yes, the year Lincoln died) and has run continuously since, with the exception of 2009-2011. The Mooty family from Minneapolis bought it after it closed, invested in the mill, and created a product line based largely on designs in the archives that are now found in the finest stores all over the country and around the world.
It’s one of the only mills in America that gets raw American-grown wool and processes it in house from start to finish. The mill is nestled on the banks of the Cannon River in the Land of Lakes, and it’s an inspiring, beautiful place that people take pilgrimages to. They make blankets, throws, scarves and accessories and supply some finished product in partnership with major brands in the USA.
They have made blankets for the US Military since 1865 and our US Navy, Army and Coast Guard blankets are some of the hottest items at the hippest stores right now. They also look great draped across the seat of a woody. Most of their blankets are washable, so they’re great on a boat. And in a cabin, or man cave or boathouse. Or under a Christmas tree! Hint hint!
