Pendleton

I have been jonesing for a nice wool blanket for a few months now...and I'm beginning to wonder how I've lived in Oregon for as long as I have without yet purchasing a Pendleton Blanket! I love the history and tradition behind the National Parks series of blankets. Check out this great pre-war ad!


Above is an example of the Glacier National Park blanket; still the same design; almost 70 years later.


Above is a rare example of the 1928 Rainer Park blanket; wish this was still in production!

Beyond the National Park blankets, Pendleton also has a great selection of classic cabin-y throws. There are so many to choose from!



This is such a great houndstooth blanket; I love traditional menswear fabrics in textiles

And, I know, I know it's like I just can't get enough of The Ace; but they have such great Northwest design and I just can't help but mention their awesome collaboration with Pendleton and the resulting blankets on all the beds...


I think this one is my favorite :) You can buy them from the front desk.

I've been eyeing Pendleton blankets for ages! They would totally fit right in with my decor - rustic, organic, outdoorsy... wish I had more blanket-spendin' money! :)
