From Pendleton Website: Heirloom-quality wool blankets are made in the USA using wool that is sourced from ranches around the country. Pendleton has been a family-owned business for over 150 years, and for 104 of those years these woolen pieces have been woven in their Northwest Mills. You can rely on a Pendleton for a lifetime of comfort and beauty.
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.
