The Woolen Mill Store’s Blanket Wall

If you’ve ever visited our store, you’ve seen our wall of blankets; shelves full of our first-quality, USA-made wool blankets. We have one of the best selections of Pendleton blankets anywhere!

“Beautiful Things” film series

House Beautiful magazine has a fantastic series of short films called “Beautiful Things”. We were honored when they contacted us about featuring our blankets. These are the same facilities that produce our beautiful wool fabrics, which are also processed, dyed and woven in our mills.

Happy Earth Day 2020!

Earth Day during Quarantine

In some ways, this is a difficult time to celebrate our planet, since we are all doing our best to observe quarantine protocols and stay indoors. But consider this. Right now, the Internet is full of inspiring shots of clean air, clear water and adventurous wildlife stepping out on city streets. Our planet is getting a well-earned rest for Earth Day.

Pendleton Eco-Wise Wool®

There are many, many products out there claiming to be “green.” From the sheep to the shelf, Pendleton Eco-Wise Wool® passes strict standards of sustainability and stewardship, verified and certified. This means that if you were to take a Pendleton Eco-Wise Wool® fabric and bury it, it would leave the earth better, not worse, for the addition.

So consider a project with Pendleton Eco-Wise Wool® – You can see it here (after the melton fabrics): Pendleton Eco-Wise Wool®

And Happy Earth Day. We will all remember this one, won’t we?

Making Connections with Pendleton Wool

The Wonders of Wool

Here at the Woolen Mill Store, we are passionate about wool and its properties; durability, sustainability, ease of tailoring, and beauty. That’s why we love the Make it With Wool competition. We’re also passionate about the Sewing and Stitchery Expo in Puyallup, Washington that happens each year (shown in time lapse, above). With the displays, booths, classes, and wonderful conversations we have there, we learn as much as we teach.

Creative Customers

That’s why we were delighted when a Make It With Wool contestant dropped by our booth to show us the entry she made with wool purchased from our booth last year. She graciously allowed us to share these photos of her creation: a pieced coat with a unique back zipper and beautiful tonal embellishment.

Isn’t this coat a work of art?

Safety Concerns and More

We understand that many of you are home right now, whether you are working from home, or home with your children due to school closures, or, sadly, in quarantine. We want you to know that we can ship directly to your house. Pre-shop the fabrics on the fabric tab, and then call 1-866-865-9285 or email us at  WoolenMillStore@penwool.com for help.

Why Wool?

We’ve been choosing wool through many civilizations and many centuries. Why? For so many reasons; loft, insulation, durability, color and sustainability–wool lasts a remarkably long time, and when it’s time for it to go, it biodegrades naturally.
