About Woolrich Woolen Mills
Woolrich got its start in 1830 when John Rich, an immigrant from England, built his first woolen mill in Plum Run, Pennsylvania. By 1845, he built a new mill a couple of miles up the road next to Chatham Run, which provided a steadier source of water. That building exists today as part of the group of buildings, homes, and community establishments that have become Woolrich, Pennsylvania.
Technological developments, new production methods, and changing American lifestyles led to new products for all types of outdoor activities. As America took to the roads in the early 1930s, Woolrich added automobile robes and steamer rugs for the more mobile society. Woolrich was contracted by the government to outfit Admiral Byrd's expedition to Antarctica in 1939, 1940, and 1941.
The company that provided blankets to the Union soldiers in the Civil War and outfitted Admiral Byrd's expedition to Antarctica, today keeps folks warm under its wonderful throws as they cuddle up by the fireplace in their home or camp. What has not changed in all those years is Woolrich's commitment to quality, value, and products that fit the outdoor lifestyle. With its proud tradition in quality woolen products, Woolrich now offers this fine line of jacquard blankets offered by Crazy Crow Trading Post.
