IMG_6809

Pendleton Woolen Mills is proud to announce two new blankets in our Star Wars x Pendleton blanket series, in honor of Episode VIII, The Last Jedi. Preorder Here: Star Wars Blankets.

The history

Forty years ago, “A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…” scrolled across a screen for the very first time.  In the decades since, generations of fans have visited the Star Wars universe through films, novels, graphic novels, amusement rides and more.

When LucasFilm became part of the Disney family, Pendleton Woolen Mills was there to welcome them, thanks to an association that stretches all the way back to opening day of Disneyland in 1955, when Walt Disney invited us to open a western mercantile in Frontierland.

Star Wars today

Pendleton celebrates the latest Star Wars’ release with designs that combine timeless Pendleton motifs with Star Wars characters who wield the power of the Force; for good and for evil. “Remember…the Force will be with you, always.”

The Blankets!

The Last Jedi

In Star Wars: The Last Jedi, a new chapter in the Star Wars saga unfolds. Flanked by the Millennium Falcon, Rey stands at the center, raising her lightsaber in a gesture of defiance against the First Order. The story of Star Wars: The Last Jedi unfolds in a Banded Stripe pattern that harkens back to the Golden Age of trade blankets.  This exclusive Pendleton design is available in a hand-numbered edition of 1,977 with a custom Star Wars label and Certificate of Authenticity.

PENDLETON® RELEASES “BB-8” AND “Star Wars: Rogue One” LIMITED EDITION BLANKETS

Pendleton Woolen Mills is proud to announce two new Pendleton blankets as a tribute to “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and “Star Wars: Rogue One.”

This is the droid you’re looking for. This limited edition Pendleton blanket depicts the lovable droid BB-8, an indisputable fan favorite and major scene-stealer who debuted in The Force Awakens. Ombré shading represents the blue and red lightsabers of Rey and Kylo Ren, the film’s hero and villain, while geometric shapes add a distinctly Pendleton touch.

Dark silhouettes hint at the mysterious heroes at the heart of Star Wars: Rogue One, the latest chapter of the Star Wars saga. This limited edition Pendleton blanket gives you a sneak peek at new characters Jyn Erso and Captain Cassian Andor, as well as the droid K-2SO, the tropical planet of Scarif–and is that Darth Vader and the Death Star in the distance? Bands of green reflect the film’s muted palette.RogueOne_StarWars_MotorRobe_F

The edition size is limited to 1977 hand-numbered units for each of the full-size blankets. Each is presented in a commemorative box. The BB-8 box stacks with the previous four editions released in 2015.

Each blanket also comes in a Padawan child-sized edition. We’re still waiting on our “Star Wars: Rogue One” sample, but here’s the BB-8 blanket. As you can see, it’s a slightly warmer/brighter palette, with a bright yellow whipstitched binding. And he’s a friendly droid for a child’s room!

The Force Awakens! Pendleton and Star Wars

star_wars_episode_vii__the_force_awakens_ver3_xxlg

Many of you, and some of us (at Pendleton) will be there at midnight tonight to see “The Force Awakens.” We thought it would be a great day to show you our Padawan blankets; the crib-sized versions of our full-size Star Wars collectors blankets.

The Empire Strikes Back Padawan

These are 32″ x 44″, with slightly modified designs that omit the easter eggs and “STAR WARS” logo that appears when you join together the four large blankets. The Padawans are napped to be soft and fuzzy. Because the Dark Lord needs a little soft and fuzzy, doesn’t he?
