This is it – the classic Pendleton camp blanket. Renowned for its warmth and durability, this rugged wool blanket is based on the earliest designs that were once used by American outdoorsmen to brave the harsh elements of the Pacific Northwest. Featuring the traditional vertical stripes that instantly mark this out as an authentic Pendleton blanket, it comes in a large size that is ideal for a myriad of uses in the great outdoors, from cosying up in a tent to sitting out under a sky full of stars. It also comes with a handy leather carrier, with a handle and shoulder strap, so you can roll it up and take it almost anywhere. Still made in the USA, just as it always has been
The history of Pendleton Woollen Mills is a tale that is woven into the history of modern America. It is a story that began over 150 years ago, with the entrepreneurial spirit of British weaver Thomas Kay.
Kay reopened the historic Pendleton Woollen Mill, which produced trade blankets for the Native American tribes of the Columbia River and the Southwest. Initially, the company emulated the multicolour striped patterns of the famous point blankets produced by the Hudson’s Bay Company. But after designer Joe Rawnsley visited the Navajo, Hopi and Zuni tribes, they pioneered the introduction of stunning Native American-inspired designs, which became coveted and much-prized heirloom pieces.
Today, Pendleton continues to set the standard for American style. With six generations of family ownership, its textiles are infused with authenticity, heritage and craftsmanship – all still proudly designed and woven in the USA.
