There are lot of things I love about the fall: the humidity all but disappears, I start drinking apple cider and tea in large quantities, and it’s finally hoodie weather again. Come to think of it, all the things I love about the fall could be summed up in one word: cozy. Things get cozier in the fall. Add Pendleton’s National Parks blankets to that list.
Pendleton has been making their world renowned, cozy wool blankets since 1909. They started making their National Parks line in 1916 when Great Northern Railroad founder James J. Hill wanted something special for his Glacier Park lodges’ gift shops. Today, Pendleton Woolen Mills continues to honor America’s National Parks with a collection of blankets incorporating frontier traditions with the spirit of each park. I’m partial to the Glacier Park blanket ($228) with its Bison, tee-pee, and bear silhouettes and the warm, sunset-invoking colors of the Grand Canyon National Park blanket ($188- $218).
