Dress up your bed
Each year, we choose a select group of blankets to offer as bedding groups. This means we will offer multiple sizes in these blankets, usually including Queen, and sometimes up to King. We also weave special fabrics for coordinating pillow shams that are (usually) reversible. This gives customers the opportunity to fully dress a bed in Pendleton fabrics.
This year, we added some new patterns to our bedding collection offering.
Smith Rock – The towering face of Smith Rock overlooks a bend in Oregon’s Crooked River, challenging climbers from around the world to scale its heights. Considered by many to be the birthplace of American sport climbing, Smith Rock State Park offers several thousand climbs, many of them bolted, in its 650 acres of high peaks, deep river canyons, and hiking trails like Misery Ridge. This pattern, based on a traditional nine-element blanket, alternates the park’s peaks with the many paths traveled by hikers and climbers.
Lost Trail – In September of 1805, the Lewis & Clark Corps of Discovery struggled to find a trail through the Bitterroot Mountains. Their travails gave name to Lost Trail Pass, crossing the Idaho/Montana border. Two peaked bands represent the Columbia River Basin drainages divided by Lost Trail: Bitterroot Clark-Fork to the north, and Salmon to the south. The middle band represents the Lost Trail National Wildlife Refuge, which provides crucial winter habitat to fish, fowl, and mammals large and small.
And customer favorite Wyeth Trail, now offered in a Slate colorway.
Wyeth Trail – In 1834, stories of the Western frontier drew a Massachusetts inventor named Nathaniel Wyeth to the Oregon territories. The Wyeth Trail did not lead its namesake to fame and fortune, but his path endured to become part of the Oregon Trail’s 2,170 miles. With a balanced pattern of peaks, this pattern shows a perilous trail passing through dry plains, fertile valleys, and pristine rivers, surrounded on both sides by the beautiful mountain ranges of Oregon.
These join other bedding group favorites like Los Ojos, White Sands, San Miguel, and more. See them here: Bedding Groups
If your favorite blanket isn’t part of this group, check out our Pendleton Eco-Wise® Wool shams in solid colors. See them here: Solid Shams
These solid color shams coordinate beautifully with our Eco-Wise blankets, and the colors work with many of our jacquard patterns. If you have questions about exact matching, call the Pendleton Home Store in Portland’s Pearl District. We have swatches, blankets, and are happy to help you over the phone or in person.
