Washable Pendleton Eco-Wise Wool in New Cabin Stripes

Good for the Earth

We’re always excited about our Pendleton Eco-Wise Wool offerings; throws and bed blankets that pass strict standards of sustainability and environmental stewardship. We’re especially excited about our newest striped Eco-Wise Wool throws in four new Cabin Stripes.

These throws combine the simple, enduring appeal of stripes with the heathered yarns that make our Yakima Camp blankets so popular. Our goal with the Cabin Stripes was to create a palette that ranged from cool neutrals to warm earth tones that will work in sophisticated living rooms, comfy lounges, cabins, lofts, and campers. We want this throw to go anywhere!

Which one is your favorite?

A Little History

Striped blankets in heathered wool have a long history that stretches back to the ombre-striped bedrolls use by cattle hands and shepherds in the American West. During the day, they were tightly rolled and tied to the saddle, and at night they were unrolled for a night’s rest under the stars.

Made in American with naturally renewable wool, each Eco-Wise throw is machine washable, and will hold its color through every wash. You might not be unrolling yours by the campfire at night after a long day on the trail. But maybe you’ll drape one over your shoulders on a summer night when the temperature drops.

Five Favorite Pendleton Wedding Gifts

Wedding Gifts for Everyone

Summer is wedding season, and June is here. Are you looking for the perfect wedding gift? We have some suggestions to send your newlyweds off in style! Here are our top five Pendleton wedding gift suggestions.

5. Towel for Two

The beach is a perfect place to lie side-by-side on the Pendleton Towel for Two. This big, blanket-sized towel is extra plush and soft—perfect for wrapping up together. Pure cotton terry is sheared on one side for softness, looped on the other for superior absorption. Just roll it up and take it along, thanks to the nylon carrying strap (included).

4. Motor Robe

Pendleton motor robes draped on Adirondack wooden chairs.

Originally called steamer rugs during the early 20th century, these blankets were a warm, welcome companion for those who traveled by horse-drawn carriage, train or boat. We haven’t been able to verify this, but company lore says that one was included with every new Model T sold by Henry Ford! With roots like that, you can see why this is a perfect blanket for a beginning, including a new marriage. Sturdy, warm, a fantastic indoor/outdoor throw. Each fringed motor robe is still woven in our America mills and comes with a convenient leather carrier.

Starting the day with breakfast, sharing the day’s happenings over dinner, or taking a leisurely weekend lunch with friends is even more fun when you’re using these bright linens. The design combines iconic Pendleton motifs in a cheerful pattern that brightens up a tabletop with Placemats, Tea Towels, Table Runner and Napkins.

2. Fifth Avenue Throw

This top-of-the-line, featherweight throw is our USA mills’ most luxurious. It’s offered in plaids and stripes to match any décor, including the ever-popular Glacier Park Stripe. This throw will last for a lifetime of snuggling on the couch, reading books or watching TV together.

The lucky couple that receives this blanket as a wedding gift will use it for the rest of their lives together, and pass it down to their children.

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

It’s not easy being green…

…but it’s worth it.

A bed covered with multiple layers of Pendleton Eco-Wise Wool washable bed blankets.

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.

Spring 2015

Let’s start with our new Spring throws. These are all about the fun. These fringed throws come with a leather carrier, making this the perfect take-along blanket for your trips, picnics, hikes or sporting events. Best of all, they’re washable, so if your fun involves spills, sloshes, crumbs or mud, you’re covered. Just put it in the washing machine, even though it’s 100% virgin wool. We have two colorations of our classic Surf Plaid, and our new WoolDenim which looks like ring-spun denim, front and back.

Fringed Throws w Leather Carrier

Also new for Spring, we have washable fringed throws in the beautiful ombre plaids you think of when you think of Pendleton.

Ombre Throws

Be sure to check out the classic colors, too. Blocks, checks, plaids; these are just begging to be thrown over the arm of your sofa.

Bed Blankets

Our throws coordinate coordinate back to our Pendleton Eco-Wise Wool® bed blankets. Here are the solids and heathers.

All washable bed blankets for 2015

Wool is a perfect choice for top-of-bed. There is a subtlety to the texture, nothing shiny or artificial about it, and the colors will remain true forever. Check out the bed blankets in stripes and plaids. There are accent pillows, fabric by-the-yard, window panels and more available in Pendleton Eco-Wise Wool®.  Go warm with with traditional plaids, rustic with stripes and heathers, or keep it contemporary with checks. We have you and your bed totally covered.
