The Pendleton Glacier Park Blanket is one in the series of blankets made by Pendleton Woolen Mills since the early 1900s to honor America's National Parks. Each blanket in the collection of distinctive park blankets has a Pendleton label signifying their authenticity and special woven label with the park name and image of an important natural feature. National Park Blankets are woven right here in our Pacific Northwest mills, just as they were nearly 100 years ago. A portion of your National Park blanket purchase helps fund park restoration projects, with more than $500,000 donated so far.
These fine Pendleton Park Blankets will provide a lifetime of traditional warmth and nostalgia.

Pendleton Glacier Park Blanket Debuts in 1916
When Glacier National Park was established in 1910, James J. Hill, founder of the Great Northern Railroad, commissioned Pendleton to create an iconic, one-of-a-kind blanket for guests at the park’s lodges. The Glacier Stripe National Park blanket debuted in 1916 and has been in production ever since. That same year, President Woodrow Wilson signed into law the Organic Act, creating the National Park Service. The National Park Service preserves unimpaired the natural and cultural resources and values of the National Park System for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations.
These two concurrent, centennial anniversaries in 2016 inspired Pendleton to develop a National Park Collection of lifestyle products, apparel and home, with a portion of the sales to be donated to the National Park Foundation in support of two landmark national park projects. The National Park Foundation, in partnership with the National Park Service, enriches America’s national parks and programs through private support, safeguarding our heritage and inspiring generations of national park enthusiasts.
