New Year is here
Happy 2019! We are celebrating with photos shared by proud Pendleton-loving parents…and their adorable babies.
Wool and babies
Wool is a fine choice for baby blankets. It’s natural, breathable, warm, lofty, and light. If you’ve ever touched one of our beautiful napped blankets, you know how soft they are. Above, Tiffany Galindo shows us some happiness on the newest Pendleton national park blanket – which celebrates Olympic National Park in Washington state.

This blanket also supports a good cause. The National Park Foundation receives a royalty from the purchase of each national park blanket. Pendleton and our partners have donated more than $700,000 so far to support critical restoration projects in our national parks.
Oh, my goodness. Another adorable baby, this one with a Chief Joseph patterned child’s blanket. These blankets, like our parked blankets, are napped for extra softness and insulation.
Another kind of napping
Napping is a special mill process that brushes up wool fibers. This creates a softer surface, and more air pockets to hold warm air. In other words, napping wool doubles the cozy. Napping also makes wool easy to clean, as most soil doesn’t settle into the blanket–it brushes away. All the better for your little ones.

More than wool
Cotton blankets have advantages, too. Knit blankets are stretchy, which is great for swaddling.
Cotton is also machine washable. If you’ve noticed how leaky babies can be, you’ll see the benefit there. Our Canyonlands Knit Cotton Baby Blanket is a beautiful way to wrap your baby in softness.

All Pendleton baby blankets are awesome stroller mates. But we do have a special stroller blanket in one of our most popular stripes, for baby’s adventures in the outdoors.
This cuddly cotton knit blanket is backed with faux Sherpa fleece for the ultimate in snuggle factor. You can see it here: STROLLER BLANKET
These are all wonderful ways to celebrate the new babies in your life; to greet them with open arms and soft, warm Pendleton blankets.
Happy New Year!
