Celebrating the Solstice and Summer

We are celebrating the Summer Solstice and the beginning of Summer with Kristen Frasca, one of our newest brand ambassadors. Kristen is a jewelry maker, graphic designer and photographer based in Nashville, TN. She has impeccable style, which shows in these summery shots.

Nothing says summer like a picnic. It’s the perfect way to relax in nature; spread a blanket, unpack your feast and toast to the months ahead.

Warrior Rock Wristlet

Our picnic is happening on one of our new blankets for 2017–the Compass Point throw, which coordinates with the Compass Point bedding collection. This USA-made wool throw features a contemporary design in neutral hues, anchored by a repeating pattern of crosses. Each arm of the Greek cross reaches toward one of earth’s four corners, pointing the way to adventure, wealth, knowledge and relaxation. The Compass Point bed blanket is beautiful, too!

Compass Point wool throw

We’re always surprised when people say they’d never picnic on a Pendleton blanket. It takes some shaking out, but it’s actually good for your blanket to use it. It’s the best way there is to avoid moth damage. Wool blankets are thick, protective, insulating, and most spills bead up and shake right off, thanks to lanolin and the other amazing and natural properties of wool.

And for those of you who are worried about dampness, you can always check out our Pendleton roll-up blankets. These are backed with water-resistant materials.

Escondido Tote

Hey there, goofy girl. This is Kristen’s Siberian Husky, Winter. It’s fine to crash the picnic when you’re this friendly and cute. And the Escondido Tote is a sophisticated and roomy tote that will hold everything but the dog, of course.

Acadia Park Featherweight Scarf

And now, let’s talk about that beautiful wrap. It’s the perfect summer layer; a Featherweight Scarf, generously sized, light-as-air in soft, silky mercerized wool in our Acadia National Park stripe. It is sizable enough to wrap you head-to-foot with the softest layer of smooth, airy wool. It’s also completely easy to wear around your neck, due to the whisper-thin fabric. It’s also available in Yosemite National Park Stripe–giving you a stripe for each coast.

Of course, you all recognize the Original Board Shirt made famous by the Beach Boys. The blanket is the Water Blanket from our series that benefits the American Indian College Fund.

Water Blanket

Inspired by a blanket in an early 20th-century photograph by Edward S. Curtis, this blanket is inspired by the peerless weaving of the American Southwest. It incorporates classic Navajo elements in an eye-dazzling pattern. The central dragonfly, an emblem of water, symbolizes life.

Later in the calendar, we found this gravity-defying hackysack game.
