Eco-Woven Wool Throw
+ $ shipping surcharge
Just as we’re mindful of where we source our ingredients from when we cook, we try to integrate sustainable and environmentally-responsible products into our daily lives whenever possible. This recycled wool throw from American classic Faribault is the one you’ll have wrapped around you all winter, in a dark heather grey with a contrasting whipstitch in either white or black. Although Faribault is dedicated to natural and renewable wool, they’ve added a bit of recycled acrylic (fibers that would otherwise end up in a landfill) that make the throw even softer. That’s a win-win if we’ve ever heard one.

Details & Materials -
65% recycled wool, 35% acrylic
66” L x 45” W
Care & Notes -
Machine wash cold, separately, on a gentle cycle. A gentle cleaning agent designed for wool is recommended. Side load washing machines are the gentlest. Tumble dry low and remove promptly when dry. Line drying is also recommended, taking care to rotate the woolen to prevent stretching. Iron only on low, only if necessary. Do not use fabric softener, as it can increase pilling. Do not bleach.
To prevent moths, store your Faribault woolens in airtight container when not in use for extended periods. A lint brush or nylon-bristled garment brush are the most effective way to remove pills. Brush in the same direction, along the length of the woolen. Regular, gentle brushing can prevent most pilling.
Meet the Maker
The Faribault Woolen Mill (est. 1865) is one of the last vertical woolen mills in the United States, using original century-old machinery alongside more modern technology to spin raw wool into some of the coziest blankets we’ve ever felt. They’ve supplied blankets to westward-bound pioneers and American troops during wartimes—so when we snuggle under them, we can’t help but feel like we’re wrapped up in a piece of living history.View Full Profile
