The Mountain Majesty blanket design was inspired by Navajo hand weaving created in the Southwest circa 1920-1940. Pendleton has woven into the pattern a host of positive, Indigenous-inspired symbols. Terraced steps reference the mountains we climb in life’s journey to reach the clouds and sky above. Big mountains are symbols of abundance. Motifs in the central stripe may be interpreted as saddlebags for a journey up and over the mountains. Diamonds may signify the four mountains sacred to the Navajo. Centred on these traditional diamond geometrics are butterfly-like images, uplifting symbols of hope and life. Some believe that butterflies can deliver a wish up to the Great Spirits. Inspirational symbols are complemented by quiet colours that evoke the evening light of a Western landscape and the faded hues of a vintage Old Glory.

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.
