In 1909 Thomas L.Kay and his family moved to Pendleton in northeastern Oregon and took over the defunct Pendleton Woolen Mills and started there business there. Since then Pendleton has become renowned for their Native American inspired blanket designs and durable woollen shirts. Today the company is still owned by the family and all blankets are proudly made in Pendleton, Oregon.

The Pendleton AICF Blanket collection are made for the American Indian College Fund, where Pendleton support their work. The sales from these blankets help fund scholarships to colleges and make a huge difference to the Native American community students around the USA. 

The Return of the Sun blanket is all about the changing of the seasons. Inspired by the artwork of Larry Ahvakana, it celebrates the arrival of the sun back to the Arctic and the start of hunting season. The Iñupiat mark this special time with the Messenger Feast—a ceremony where the spirits of the past season’s harvest are ushered back into the spirit world. Today, the celebration fosters cultural pride and the regeneration of traditional values. 

All these Pendleton blankets comfortably fit over a double bed, or are perfect for wall hangings, folded on a sofa or as the perfect snuggling blanket.
