FOUR REASONS YOU'LL LOVE PENDLETON WOOL
1. It's Easy Care
The elasticity in wool fiber makes it naturally wrinkle-resistant and prone to holding its shape.
Minor wrinkles disappear when a garment is hung - 24 hours usually restores a smooth appearance with no need for pressing.
No need to clean each time! Wool's resilience, low static and hairy surface help to repel dirt. Just brush and air out between wearings.
Some of our Pendleton wools are even hand and/or machine washable.
2. It's Comfortable Year-Round
Wool is a natural insulator that lets the skin breathe, so it keeps you cool when its warm, cozy when the mercury drops.
Our lightest weight wools are suitable for year-round wear. They're great for warm weather wear when many other "cool" fabrics are prone to wrinkling.
3. It's Beautiful
The hollow fibers of wool absorb dyes deeply and permanently for rich, lasting color.
In the hands of our expert Pendleton weavers, different colors of wool yarn may be woven together to create intricate patterns and gorgeous color combinations.
4. It Lasts
The beauty of wool is enduring thanks to the strength of the fibers and their natural resistance to water, stains and fire.
Pendleton blankets, shirts, 49er jackets and pleated skirts and many other signature products are passed from generation to generation.
100% pure virgin wool, the only kind we weave, is the strongest, highest quality wool.
