Fun Songs for Sheep Peeps

From Motown to Christmastown

Our Frankenmuth Woolen Mill is a part of a small community that is one of Michigan’s most popular tourist attractions. Located an easy hour and half drive north of Detroit the city of Frankenmuth shines brightly as America’s Christmas Town.

Decades before Detroit became the Motor City the Frankenmuth Woolen Mill was built and opened in downtown Frankenmuth, MI.

As Detroit flourished it became known for much more than automobiles. The city’s list of monikers grew to include “The Arsenal of Democracy”, “The Paris of the Midwest”, “Hockey Town” and maybe the easiest on the ears nickname of “Motown”.

Through the past 124 years the Frankenmuth Woolen Mill has been providing “wool bedding” hits that have topped the beds of sleepers all over the country.

In keeping with the Motown theme we have come up with the Frankenmuth Woolen Mill’s all-time Top Ten sleep hits…

Visions of Sugar Plums Since 1894

We are humbled and honored that so many families choose our bedding to give the gift of great sleep.  These “presents” of wooly goodness got us thinking about how Christmas gifts and traditions have changed since our mill first opened in 1894.

Christmas became a federal holiday in the United States a mere 24 years before the Frankenmuth Woolen Mill opened its doors.

Thank the King for Turkey rather than Lamb Chops for Dinner

It’s Thanksgiving. And while all of America is thinking about turkey and stuffing, we’re thinking more about how all that feasting makes everyone just plain sleepy.

We can’t help it. Great sleep is our business.
