I just discovered that you can get all sorts of Pendleton goodies on Amazon! I have a bit of an obsession with Pendleton patterns. And our fearless leader, Ariel, has one particular obsession with her very own Pendleton blanket. (You can see it pictured above.) She recently gushed to me about it…

God I love that fucking thing. It makes my bedroom feel both rainbow-y AND historic/classy at the same time. I'm currently using a king-sized shitty fleece blanket folded in half beneath it as a second layer so that I stay warm enough on these cold nights… I love my bed right now.

Want to love your bedroom (or kitchen, or living room, or bathroom) as much as our girl Ariel does? Then check out some of these Pendleton goodies…

  1. I have major Hudson's Bay Company blanket love. The history is fascinating, and the design and quality can't be beat.

    I was given my four-point blanket as a gift during university, and it is one of my favourite possessions. I fully plan on giving one to my daughter when she graduates high school.

    The other designs by Pendleton are neat, but you can't beat a classic HBC blanket!

  2. I love Pendleton but I have to admit that the primary-colors-on-white designs that are just a straight Hudson Bay rip kind of bum me out. Though I guess the Hudson Bay stores sell coats made by Pendleton so maybe they have some kind of agreement.

    • Those are part of their National Park collection which features all different stripe patterns on various backgrounds, it might be coincidence that that one collection design (Glacier National Park) bears so much resemblance to Hudson Bay Company's signature design.

      Most of their designs aren't white with primary stripes, they tend to have a more Native American inspired or earth tone designs.

  3. Ahhhhh! This is the perfect article for me today. My hub-stache and I are pretty obsessed with both Pendleton and Hudson Bay- blankets, sweaters, coats. My dream is to own a Hudson Bay coat- or even better, one of the historic wool coats worn in the Saint Paul Winter Carnival. That's honestly how I think Pendleton got to using the Hudson Bay stripe- Louis Hill Commissioned them to make the stripe for his Glacier National Park coats (Linksies: http://collections.mnhs.org/cms/largerimage.php?irn=10217523&catirn=10274568&return=brand=cms&q=winter%20carnival%20coats ). Hence, Pendleton calling it their Glacier stripe!

  4. I am fortunate to live in Oregon and have a Pendleton factory store in my vicinity. Any trip that direction usually includes a trip to the outlet where I pick up majorly discounted fabric by the yard. <3 Pendleton wool!!

    • Dude, I hit up the Pendleton store at that huge outlet mall south of Portland every time I drive south on I5.

  5. At one time, I lived in Pendleton, where blankets are often hung in businesses and public spaces as art pieces. My favorite is the Mt. Hood blanket from 2009. It has a white silhouette of the mountain in mirror image (head to foot) with end borders of ferns and trillium on a sky blue background. It was a limited edition, commemorative blanket and I was not able to find a picture. There is a new Mt. Hood blanket on a navy background, but it is quite different – nice, but I prefer the older version.

  6. Sipping from my Pendleton shared spirits mug as I read this… Also, they not only use Native American designs, but sell many designs by Native American DESIGNERS, rather than merely appropriating from indigenous traditions.

    2 agree
  7. Those Pendleton blankets are beautiful but I always think of them as scratchy and heavy. Give me down or give me death!
    Am I channeling some horrible horse blanket from my past? Am I out of date on this?
