Long ago, trickster Coyote worried at how the People suffered in winter. Coyote journeyed to the tall mountain where the Fire Beings lived. He watched day and night, learning their ways and weaknesses. Early one morning, while a sleepy Fire Being was coming to stand watch, Coyote snatched Fire and ran. The Fire Beings gave chase. One caught the tip of his tail, which turned white and has remained so ever since. Coyote tossed Fire to Squirrel, and the heat caused her tail to bend upward, where it remains to this day. Squirrel tossed Fire to Frog. A Fire Being grabbed Frog’s tail, but he tore free, leaving it behind forever. Frog tossed Fire to Wood, and Wood swallowed up Fire. The Fire Beings tried to bring Fire from Wood. They sang songs and offered gifts. They made threats and tore at Wood with knives. Defeated, they returned to their mountain. Coyote alone knew the trick of bringing Fire from Wood. He went to the People and showed them how to use a sharpened stick in a small hole to bring Fire to their hearths and homes.

Made in the USA

Our heirloom-quality wool blankets are made in the USA using wool that is sourced from ranches around the country. We’ve been a family-owned business for over 150 years, and for 104 of those years we've been weaving world class woolens in our Northwest Mills. You can rely on a Pendleton for a lifetime of comfort and beauty.

Pendleton Heritage

In 1889, Thomas Kay opened his first mill in Salem, Oregon where his eldest daughter, Fannie, learned the textile business. When she married retail merchant C.P. Bishop, a complementary combination of merchandising and manufacturing expertise emerged - a solid foundation for what was to become Pendleton Woolen Mills. In 1895, the company’s woolen mill began making bed blankets and robes for the American Indigenous community. In September of that same year, the first products emerged from the new finishing department and the tradition of Pendleton Woolen Mills began.

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.

Indigenous Trading Blanket History

From 1909, Pendleton has produced Indigenous blankets, robes and shawls. Today, Pendleton is deeply connected to the American Indigenous community. Prior to the introduction of mill techniques, traditional blankets were made from hides or pelts of smaller animals which had been sewn together or woven from wool, feathers, down, bark and cotton; and, in some areas, shredded cedar bark. These colourful blankets were integrated into everyday and ceremonial uses; part of a dowry, weddings, gift-giving, powwows, dance prizes, naming ceremonies, funerals and memorials.
