So happy to finally get to introduce the Faribault Woolen Mills x Camp Wandawega new blanket! We partnered with our favorite US mill to create a little collection of three classic little woolen products.
FIRST UP: The Camp ‘Foot Soldier’ Blanket.
You’ll find these in the footlockers of our WWII bunks in our Boy Scout platform tents. And you’ll find them in our A-frame. Our own beds, our wall hooks in some cabins….and you’ll find them in our Camp Store.
ABOUT THE BLANKET:
Since the 1890s, Faribault Woolen Mill has been making blankets for the US military and its academies. The “Foot Soldier” Military Wool Blankets were originally created in 1917, and have since maintained the same construction. Made with pure wool, the US Navy Gray blanket is a piece of history. Featuring the U.S. Military logo & WANDAWEGA script in the center
ABOUT THE MAKER:
Nearly 150 years ago, the Faribault Woolen Mills was founded by Carl Klemer in Minnesota. The brand began as a supplier for locals and people heading west, and turned to producing blanket for American servicemen, making 100,000 pieces each year. Recognition of the quality and craftsmanship represented by Faribault Woolen Mills increased demand until the mill was making more than half of the blankets produced in the USA. Today, Faribault Woolen Mills continues the tradition of heritage quality from its Minnesotan hometown.
