We live where we work, and we love what we do. Many Pendleton employees have been with the company for generations. A third of our Washougal mill employees have been with us more than 25 years! It‘s this level of commitment, talent and experience plus first-rate technology that make it possible for us to weave wool fabrics of such amazing quality. Come see for yourself how we do it. Stop by to say ’hello’ and take the tour at one of our mills.”
Charlie Bishop, Mill Manager
America’s World Class Woolen Mills
Pendleton’s Pacific Northwest woolen mills are a testament to the quest for quality established by our founder six generations ago in 1863. The intricate jacquard blankets and array of wool fabrics we produce have earned a reputation on par with the greatest mills around the world. For more than 150 years, we’ve invested in the people and the technology needed to achieve the beautiful color and original patterns that are the hallmarks of our family enterprise.
As a precautionary measure against COVID-19, we are suspending tours at both our Washougal, Washington, and Pendleton, Oregon, mills until further notice. We are taking this step for the welfare and safety of our employees and visitors. Thank you for your understanding.
