Pendleton heirloom-quality blankets have been coveted since 1863. The family business makes high-quality, pure Americana blankets, including the Yakima Camp Throw. Camp blankets were originally used by shepherds in the Pacific Northwest, where these rugged virgin wool/cotton versions are still woven.
THE BEST Pendleton
The game of backgammon is 7,000 years old; the USA heritage brand Pendleton is 150; and a mating of the two begat this. The travel-ready Pendleton x Chronicle Books Backgammon Roll-Up (also made for chess/checkers) looks like a Pendleton wool blanket, but it’s soft-coated canvas with a snap-on pouch for game pieces.
