Reviews

We walk together

For this collaboration, we partnered with accomplished Mi’kmaq visual artist, Jordan Bennett, who lives and works on his ancestral territory of Mi’kma’ki in Terence Bay, Nova Scotia. Through various mediums, Jordan explores the act of visiting, familial histories, colonial perceptions of Indigenous presence, and the Mi’kmaq / Beothuk visual culture of Ktaqamkuk, his birthplace. Together, we've created a limited edition Pendleton blanket.

Making a Pendleton

Pendleton is founded on an intimate knowledge of the wool business – from fiber to fabric. Whether it’s a wool garment, wool fabric, or a wool blanket, Pendleton offers over 100 years of expertise, imagination and dedication to quality. As a world-leading, vertically integrated wool manufacturer, Pendleton uses sophisticated information systems to ensure a balanced flow of raw materials through production and on to finished products available at top retailers across the globe.

Our Wool

Pendleton raw wool is processed before it is made into fabric, which is then constructed and woven into home and fashion products, as well as apparel and accessories for men and women. Our direct relationships with sheep farmers, and vertical manufacturing gives Pendleton the advantage of monitoring every step of the production process to maintain quality and value throughout at each stage of production. Our wool buyers shop world markets, but most of Pendleton's wool still comes from the United States.
