Frankenmuth Woolen Mill - The Frankenmuth Woolen Mill was founded in 1894 to process wool from local farm flocks into warm, wool bedding. Local families needed this service to survive harsh Midwestern winters. What started as a quest to aid rural farm life in the nation's Heartland, has now turned into a 125-year tradition of making comfortable, healthy, and quality wool comforters and other wool bedding.
