Pendleton Woolen Mills has created distinctive blankets honoring America’s National Parks since the early 1900s.

Fur trappers would bring their catch to the trading posts, and traders would hold up fingers to indicate the weight of the blanket in pounds that they were willing to trade for the trapper’s goods.
