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!



Every blanket is made in America, woven in Pendleton’s own Pacific Northwest Mill.

The blankets are scheduled to ship in early October. They are available for preorder on Friday, September 2nd. Preorder online here: SHOP STAR WARS BLANKETS

The blankets are also available for preorder at the Pendleton store locations listed below.

UGG Australia and Pendleton for 2016: National Park Style!


Pendleton and UGG Australia have done it again, this time in styles that honor America’s National Parks! The new collection for men and women features iconic UGG® boots and slippers paired with the historic National Park Stripe designs of Pendleton’s National Park blankets.

ugg-in-the-forestThe limited-edition UGG® X Pendleton® Collection will be available at all UGG®concept stores in North America and Asia, online at, and at select wholesale partners beginning August 15.


You probably recognize the stripe patterns from our Yellowstone and Yosemite blankets, shown here in photos by two of our #pendle10park explorers; Corey Jenkins (@ourfreeways) and Allie Taylor (@alliemtaylor).



The boots, like our blankets, are part of our initiative to honor and support the National Park Service in its mission to preserve America’s treasures, our National Parks.

See our selection here: Pendleton x UGG Australia.  We would love it if you bought from our site, but we have already sold through some styles and colors. So please head to UGG Australia to find anything you don’t see in our selection. And please don’t wait. The collection is honestly flying out the door. And we are not supposed to play favorites, but this style is our favorite.


That’s how you walk the dog, people.



Andra Day in Billboard Magazine: Los Ojos Looking Good

Festival season is going strong, and we were excited to be part of a feature on “The Fest Dressed List,” featuring strong new artists hitting the festivals this year.


Andra Day looks fantastic on our Los Ojos blanket and we love her retro vibe. According to Rolling Stone, Andra:

Sounds Like: One in the morning at your favorite cabaret bar

For Fans of: Emeli Sandé, Melanie Fiona, Seinabo Sey

Why You Should Pay Attention: Don’t be fooled by the images of Andra Day in doo-rags and vintage furs like a post-millennial Billie Holiday. Far from a retro artist, her music spans from “Forever Mine,” which is inspired by the Flamingos’ doo-wop classic “I Only Have Eyes For You,” to the soaring empowerment anthem “Rise Up,” which she performed last month on the BET Awards. “I’m not going to put myself in a box,” she says. “Whichever chord progressions move me, whether it’s rock, jazz, doo-wop or soul, I’m going to put it together and not be worried about whether people can put it in a lane or not.”

Airstream & Pendleton. Your dreams came true.


The new Pendleton Airstream is causing a stir, as it brings together two iconic American brands in in the #liveriveted Airstream of your dreams. Enjoy these photos, taken in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, before we could even TALK about this project!


The special touches start at the front door…




…and continue through the interior.


Pendleton motifs that celebrate our National Parks are embossed on the leather seating and stenciled on the storage doors.


A selection of Pendleton Home goods from our National Park Collection furnishes your Airstream in Pendleton style.


And don’t forget your best friend.




The Pendleton Airstream isn’t just a wonderful way to explore the National Parks. It’s a wonderful way to support the Parks. A portion from the sale of each of the 100 limited edition Pendleton Airstreams will help support the National Park Foundation, which maintains and preserves our National Treasures for future generations.

#RCTID – Sunday is the DAY!

We strongly suggest you read this feature by Dave Blanchard for OPB, which will tell you “Everything you Need to Know before the Timbers MLS Cup Game.” Then grab your scarf and get set to wave it in honor of our Western Conference Champions, the Portland Timbers, as they compete for the MLS cup for the first time EVER!


The game is tomorrow. Our Timbers are skilled, tireless and full of fire. Let’s cheer them on to victory!rolled.jpg

And we want to remind you that you can pre-order your Timbers blanket, designed by a Timbers fan and chosen by Timbers fan votes.

Oh My: Backstage at Allegiance with George Takei

One of our district managers had a letter from one of our employees as follows:

Janese and I were talking one day about this new Broadway show called Allegiance and how we both planned to go. She informed me her cousin works for George Takei, the inspiration and star of the show. She planned to gift him a Pendleton blanket, since sharing his story was courageous. I thought this was a wonderful gesture! We ended up going yesterday, and when we met Mr. Takei, he said to me “You work for Pendleton? I wear their shirts and love them!” He thanked Janese for the beautiful blanket, and said he would take it to his house in Arizona. He is a gracious, talented star, and a Pendleton fan!


We are great fans of Mr. Takei around here, from his days on Star Trek as Mr. Sulu, to his current incarnation as King of Facebook and Broadway star. So enjoy some starry-eyed fan moments, thanks to Kris!

Pendleton and Levi’s Collaborate for 2015


Levi’s and Pendleton collaborate in shades of deepest indigo. The made-in-the-USA capsule collection features Levi’s indigo denim and Pendleton wool in a pattern that pays tribute to the shared workwear roots of both companies. The stars of the collaboration are jean jackets for him and her constructed of Levi’s indigo denim and lined with Pendleton wool.

Workwear shirts for him and her tell a unique denim story in Pendleton’s WoolDenim™. WoolDenim™ weaves 100% virgin wool with the distinctive look of ring-spun denim, front and back. We offer it in many different weights. This collaboration uses a special year-round weave, with yokes lined in the collaboration’s unique patterned wool.



The 2015 Levi’s collaborative blanket, the third we’ve done with Levi’s, is a beauty. Mountain and arrowhead motifs in shades of indigo deepen to charcoal.


The collection is available through Levi’s: SHOP HERE

Where the Mountains Meet the Sea: UGG and Pendleton Collaborate in 2015


Wool, meet wool. If there were ever a natural partnership, it’s this one. Our 2014 collaboration with UGG Australia was an immediate hit and a nearly immediate sell-through, so we’re excited to bring you another collaboration for this holiday season.

We talked about the shared heritage of UGG and Pendleton in a post last year, which you can read here: 2014 UGGs & PWM. Both companies have roots in Southern California’s surf culture, a point nicely illustrated by this display at the UGG Australia HQ..


Our new pattern, exclusive to this collection, reflects this shared history. Inspired by the place where the mountains meet the sea, this banded design has mountain peaks and rolling waves in natural hues. Here it is on the loom at our USA mill.


There’s something for everyone; scuffs, mocs, lace-ups, slip-ons, and the classic UGG in short and tall. There’s an exciting lace-up Adirondack waterproof boot that’s going wild on Pinterest for us. There’s even a baby bootie. JUST LOOK AT IT!!


(Sorry, but that’s one cute little bootie.)

We’re rounding out the offering with vests for both men and women, and assortment of well-crafted bags.


Most of the footwear and bags and both the vests are available at, including this beautifully constructed women’s vest.


Exclusive to are two pieces for the home; a fleece-backed throw and an oversized pillow. We have to show them to you, even though we aren’t carrying them; they are simply beautiful.


We’re garnering some nice recognition in the press, with more to come. You can read about us in GQ and Town & Country. Last year’s collection went fast, so don’t wait to make your choice. You don’t want this one to run away from you!
