Pendleton Eco-Wise Wool®: Sustainable, Beautiful, Responsible
From the sheep to the shelf, Pendleton Eco-Wise Wool® passes strict standards of sustainability and stewardship. That sounds admirable, doesn’t it? But those lofty words would mean nothing at all if Pendleton Eco-Wise Wool® products weren’t soft, richly colored and delightful to touch.
There are many, many products out there claiming to be green. Pendleton Eco-Wise Wool® has been Cradle to Cradle Certified© by MBDC, a respected product and process design firm dedicated to promoting sustainable production. If you’re curious, you can find out more here. The best way to explain it? If you were to take a Pendleton Eco-Wise Wool® blanket and bury it (but please don’t!), it would leave the earth better, not worse, for the addition.
Pendleton Eco-Wise Wool® is an innovation in the Umatilla wool we’ve woven for over a century that uses nontoxic biodegradable dyes. Pendleton is known for the depth and intensity of our colors. Vegetable dyes are not as stable as chemical dyes, and the formula took some tinkering, especially the red spectrum. But with a great deal of trial and a reasonable amount of error, we produced Pendleton Eco-Wise Wool® that we could guarantee for quality.
So maybe you want to wrap yourself up in environmental responsibility this year, or maybe you just want something beautiful, wooly and Pendleton. In either case, we have plenty to show you.
Our washable bed blankets are offered in four plaids.
Love those blanket-stitched edges. These are washable, and get softer with each trip through the spin cycle.
The solid blankets and matching shams coordinate back to the bed blanket plaids so they can be used together, or used alone for a clean, contemporary look. Here are a few shades:
You can see the gorgeous array of color choices here and here. Wool is a perfect choice for top-of-bed. There is a subtlety to the texture, nothing shiny or artificial about it, and the color will remain true forever. You can add accent interest with pillows or…
…maybe the fringed Lambswool Throw.
This is actually a lambswool/merino blend, and if you know your wools, you’ll appreciate what woven merino does for the hand of this throw. It is soft. The six plaids coordinate back to both the plaid and solid bed blankets, or stand on their own in any room of your home.
We also offer it in white …
…which we brought back after a consumer clamor. Calm down! It’s back! The perfect shower/wedding gift is available again!
There are accent pillows, fabric by-the-yard, window panels and more available in Pendleton Eco-Wise Wool®. Give us a visit and see all our colorful ways to be green.
