We picked up the Acadia and the Rainier National Park blankets a couple of years ago. Beautiful and well made. Gave the Rainier away as a special gift.

Blankets

I started this thread because of the interest my wife has shown in these blankets. Her family has always used Pendleton products from shirts, shawls and blankets. We have some Beaver State editions and now she wants to start with the National arks we visit in the AS. I have been doing some research and found these blankets have been being issued since the 1900's. I am not interested in vintage and there are plenty of them for sale. I am going to start with the the Parks as we visit them this summer. Hopefully Yosemite, Yelowstone and Rainier. I believe there is still a production facility in Washugal WA right across the border from Portland. Anyway they sure are pretty and I know from the others we have also very comfortable. My brother has one from the Ducks Rose Bowl game and I believe they made a HUSKY (My personal favorite) edition as well. Who da thunk?

Well, we went to the Pendleton outlet in Washougal today and bought two National Park Blankets. We ended up getting the Yellowstone and Mt. Rainier. They are beautiful and the YNP has a shade of gold as a background color that looks great in the trailer. All in all a good day.

If you go to this outlet and know anybody that lives in or near Portland, take them with you. If they show their id you won't have to pay the WA state sales tax which is becoming up around 9%.

These are a gift from my Dad to my wife and she is thrilled. Thanks Dad, you crabby old fart. Sometimes you surprise me.
