Pendleton is one of the most recognized name when it comes to American blankets. Founded by Thomas Lister Kay’s daughter Fannie, her husband C.P. Bishop and their three sons, Pendleton Woolen Mills has been making beautiful blankets since 1909. During Pendleton’s first year operation, almost 4 million pounds of wool was processed and readied for blanket production. The Center’s 2014 fall textile art exhibit displays more than 20 of Pendleton’s wonderful blankets.
