Target cosies up with Faribault Woolen Mill to sell fall accessories

Target customers will soon be able to get their hands on specialty woolen products manufactured by one of the state's oldest businesses.

Target's website ABullseyeView announced the Minneapolis-based discounter will carry an exclusive line of 100 percent wool textiles produced by Faribault Woolen Mill, based in Faribault. Calling it a "classic-meets modern collection of American-made accessories and giftable items," the line will include an assortment of limited-edition bags, throws, scarves for men and women and tech accessories.

The products will be available at Target.com starting Nov. 2.

The Star Tribune notes the brand is typically sold in more high-end retailers.

"Boutiques and premiere retailers such as Nordstrom, J. Crew, Madewell, Club Monaco, West Elm, Garnet Hill, and CB2 sell its scarves, throws, blankets and accessories," the story says.

The Pioneer Press adds that fans of the brand can get a jump on the Target collaboration. Faribault Woolen Mill is hosting its first tent sale Sept. 26-27. Items including wool blankets, throws and scarves will be discounted 50 percent or more.

Organizers say the mill plans to hold such a tent sale annually. The sale is at the company headquarters at 1500 N.W. Second Ave. in Faribault.

The Star Tribune story has a bit of history about the venerable line. It was founded in 1865 and in its current location since the 1890s, but closed in 2009. The mill was reopened two years later after it was "rescued" by two Edina businessmen. Its sales reached $10 million this year.
