29.07.2015 Pendleton & The National Parks

Posted by Lone Crow

Pendleton blankets have been a part of the National Parks experience for most of a century. Montana’s Glacier National Park was established in 1910. James J. Hill, founder of the Great Northern Railroad, commissioned Pendleton Woolen Mills to create a one-of-a-kind blanket for the park’s lodges. The Glacier National Park blanket debuted in 1916 and has been in production ever since.

As the Park system has grown, so have Pendleton’s offerings. Blankets inspired by the colors and features of each park commemorate these unspoiled landscapes. Each blanket bears an intricately woven label, inspired by vintage souvenir window stickers given to visitors who motored to parks in their brand new automobiles, often with a Pendleton robe tucked over their knees.

Just like the National Parks, Pendleton products are made to be passed from generation to generation, gathering memories along the way. We are proud to stock a variety of Pendleton blankets at Lone Crow Bungalow.
