Style: Wool Weekend

A nearly 80 degree day doesn't seem like the best time in the world to throw down some serious cash on wool, but that's exactly what we did on Saturday morning. In our defense, it is fall. And on this chilly morning, a wool blanket was exactly what I needed.

On Saturday morning, we got up at the crack of dawn (not the easiest feat after a Friday night celebrating Oktoberfest) and headed south to Faribault, MN, home to Faribault Woolen Mill. Faribault Woolen Mill is a historic landmark in Minnesota.  Founded on the banks of the Cannon River nearly 150 years ago, it is a living testament to American craftsmanship. Today, the mill produces beautiful, handcrafted blankets, throws, scarves and wool accessories.

And on Saturday, they were having a tent sale. Need I say more? 

Nearly 60 miles and multiple cups of coffee later, we walked away with enough wool to keep us warm even in the coldest of Minnesota winters. And with the cool fall temperatures today, the trip was well worth it.

While the tent sale is over, Faribault is still having a sale online. Make sure to check it out here!
