A couple of days ago I tweeted:
If ur not sick, you will be! I’m out & about & everyone is sneezing and coughing. Geez people…STAY HOME! #RantOfTheDay
Obviously, I tweeted this before I came down with a cold. Is it karma or just coincidence?
Since I have been under the weather the last couple of days there has been nothing nicer than warm blanket to comfort me. And when it comes to a nice heavy weight blanket, you just can’t go wrong with a wool blanket from Pendleton. I own several Pendleton blankets and have had them so long that they are now considered vintage! In our household, the tell-tale sign that fall/winter have arrived is when the Pendleton blankets are pulled out for use. Although they get lots of use each year, they continue to look fabulous and show little wear. That’s definitely a sign of good quality.
As an American company that has been around for over 150 years, Pendleton is most noteworthy for their aztec and plaid designs. However, over the years, they have evolved to carry more modern designs to fit a variety of tastes. Here are a few current Pendleton styles that I am particularly fond of.
For more than 150 years, Pendleton has set the standard for American style. With six generations of family ownership, the Company remains dedicated to its American heritage, authenticity and fabric craftsmanship. — quote from Pendleton Woolen Mills
Pendleton blankets can be seen more and more in home decor as opposed to just being used as a purely functional item. The images below are proof that Pendleton offers something for everyone, no matter what your decor style is.
However, there is one style that seems to get a lot of attention: The Glacier National Park Blanket, shown in the remainder of the photographs. It’s vibrant colors and simple pattern definitely make a bold statement.
