Additional Information
A USA-made wool baby blanket created in partnership with Native American artist Larry Ahvakana. The central imagery is inspired by the Iñupiat legend of the Great Spirit Eagle. Legend states that there once was a massive thunderbird so large and powerful that it could hunt and carry a whale—a main source of sustenance for many Native American tribes. To honor the whale, the tribes created the Messenger Feast. The ceremonial dancing and feasting prepares the community for the coming year and ensures the success of future generations Created exclusively for the American Indian College Fund, a nonprofit organization that helps fund scholarships for Native American students and tribal colleges. Your purchase helps support their honorable mission. • Napped, felt bound

The American Indian College Fund is the nation’s largest and highest-rated Native American nonprofit organization, funding scholarships for Native American students and investing in tribal colleges and universities.

When you purchase a blanket from Pendleton’s AICF Collection, a portion of proceeds will be donated to support this honorable mission.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Design and Quality This is a beautiful blanket. The colors are outstanding. The design is stunning. I am going to use it for a wall hanging instead of a baby blanket. I really, really hope that someday Pendleton will make this a full size blanket. I would buy it immediately if it were available!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go-to baby gift This crib blanket has become our 'go-to' baby gift for our grandchildren. The design is wonderful, the colors are perfect in a nursery and the quality will make it a heirloom to be passed down as the child grows up. Love having the option to monogram that makes this gift so special and personal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Killer design! Love the design on this blanket. Think it's better as wall art. I remember as a kid having itchy wool blankets, and that's what this is. Is it possible to make it with merino wool or a softer blend?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Majestic and beautiful! This blanket is even more magnificent in person than it is on line. The colors are lovely and the wool has such a soft warm feel. And the design! Well, it's magical!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful baby gift We ordered this blanket for our new grandson as a gift and are so pleased with the design and quality. We had it monogrammed and think it will be a gift he can pass on to his child as a family heirloom. Pendleton is a quality name and our family has many beautiful items..this blanket continues that tradition.
