The folks over at Free Man & Co. recently teamed up with Faribault Woolen Mills for a warm concept that is guaranteed to spark some sense of nostalgia. Inspired by the vintage Canadian Military blankets, this is the first edition in their series with Woolen Mills. The 100% cotton blanket, adorned with a hand screen printed maple leaf and a 3″ wide woven maroon stripe at the top and bottom, is now available for pre-order. Just contact Free Man & Co.
