Faribault Woolen Mill Co, since 1865. Established along the Cannon River in Minnesota, USA.
Coning : the yarn is quality tested using an electronic eye to detect weak spots and is transferred from spinning bobbins to cones to prepare for weaving.
The ring bobbins are removed from the spinning frame and transferred to the cone winding machine. The bobbins of yarn are placed on vertical creels at the bottom of the machine; the yarn is threaded upward through various guides and wound in cone form. Here, winding of heather grey yarn for military blankets. Coning is the last step of yarn production.
