From 1882 to 1962, the Chippewa Woolen Mill played an important role in the economy of Chippewa Falls. The mill was established for the purpose of supplying the men that worked in the lumber trade with warm and dependable clothing. The Chippewa Woolen Mill purchased wool from local sheep farmers and took it from the raw source all the way to the garment stage. It produced a variety of high-quality woolen products, including a complete line of men’s work clothing such as shirts, pants, breeches, jumpers, mackinaws and vests.
This Wool Hunting Jacket is a prime example of one of their products, dated via the inside label to the 1940s. The jacket features a button down front with two lower welt pockets with flaps, two hand warmer pockets and large zip-up back map pocket.
