Happy Earth Day with Pendleton Eco-Wise Wool®: Sustainable, Beautiful, Responsible

HF18_22a_70080_70081.jpg

Monday, April 22nd is Earth Day. We’re celebrating with an Instagram giveaway here: @pendletonwm  Check it out, and you might win a Pendleton Eco-Wise Wool® throw!

There are many, many products out there claiming to be green. From the sheep to the shelf, Pendleton Eco-Wise Wool® passes strict standards of sustainability and stewardship, verified and certified. This means that if you were to take a Pendleton Eco-Wise Wool® blanket and bury it, it would leave the earth better, not worse, for the addition.

That’s a nice way to explain it, but we make blankets for you to use, not to bury. Pendleton Eco-Wise Wool® products are designed to be delightful to touch, easy to care for and beautifully colored. And they are woven in the USA of 100% virgin wool.

Blankets come in solids (see them here) and stripes, checks, plaids (click here to see those); and be sure to see the new Pendleton Eco-Wise Wool® striped throws with whipstitch binding. These are just begging to be thrown over the arm of your sofa.

There are also fringed throws (here) and shams (here) to complete your bedding ensemble. And in addition to being eco-friendly, all these products are woven and made in the USA.

Serape Blankets and a Valentine Giveaway

Ah, the serape. Just looking at it makes you happy. This blanket reads modern, but it’s been around for a long time. Colorful, sturdy and functional, this blanket shawl was part of life in the traditional Mexican home, where it could serve as clothing, bedding and shelter. Colorful, versatile and fun; no wonder it’s a Pendleton customer favorite.

The serape’s roots are in the Mexican weaving tradition, but it is now common to both Spanish and Native American textiles. It’s known by many names throughout Mexico, including chamarro, cobiga, and gaban. It can be woven of a variety of materials and patterns but is generally lighter in weight. Different regions use different palettes, from the elegant neutrals of the Mexican highlands to the bold gradients of Coahuila.

Here’s a photo of a Native family in a historic Babbitt Brothers wagon with a serape peeking over the edge. This was taken in the Southwest, where the Babbitts plied (and still ply) their trade.

Pendleton’s serapes are woven of 82% wool/18% cotton in bands of gradient colors to achieve that beautiful eye-popping dimensional effect.

This is your perfect spring and summer blanket, just waiting to be invited along wherever you go. And this week (2/14/19 through 2/17/19) we are giving one away on Instagram! So go enter!

P.S. Serape stripes are not just for blankets!
