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?

Upholstery Magic with Pendleton Wool

From Tattered to Fabulous

As you may know, the Woolen Mill Store offers upholstery service when  purchasing wool fabric from our amazing inventory. One of our customers sent photos of the most adorable child’s chair re-upholstered for their daughter and new grandchild.

Side by side photos of a child's chair. The before shot shows a small winback chair with tattered brown vinyl upholstery. The after chair is covered in Pendleton wool in the "San Miguel" pattern, of ivory and red crosses on a grey background.

Inspiring, yes?

Creative Customer: Fit for a Queen!

Creativity Reigns!

We have two sets of photos of this young rider and contestant, in outfits made with Pendleton wool from our own USA looms. We couldn’t be more proud of how our patterns have been incorporated in these designs. You can click each photo to see a larger version.

First, a take a twirl with Rodeo Royalty: Pip competing at Junior Miss Rodeo Oregon in the dress she went on to wear during her reign as Little Miss NPRA 2018.

Dressed to ride

Next: Pip riding as she competed for Junior Miss Rodeo Oregon at the Philomath Frolic and Rodeo.

Her mother gave us all the details here:

My friend (designer at Ariana Head Designs) made these for my daughter to compete at Junior Miss Rodeo Oregon and for her to wear during her reign as Little Miss NPRA 2018.  We bought two yards of Pendleton and we were determined to use every piece we could. The dress was made with Pendleton and an aubergine velveteen. Those pictures were taken in fields outside of Pendleton, Oregon during the Round-Up. The vest was made with the same materials and patches added to her jeans which also matched her saddle pad (made by me).

Letterman’s Jacket with Pendleton Fabric

New Twist on a Letterman’s Jacket

We have a long history of providing wool to the makers of lettermen’s jackets, but this is the first one we’ve seen that uses our incredible jacquard-woven patterned wool.

A Proud Mother

Alysia designed this jacket for her son, Phillip, who lettered in football (4 years) and basketball (1 year) at White Swan High School in Washington state. Phillip’s family is so proud of his accomplishments, and this jacket was a great way to show it.

Rio Rancho Fabric

Alysia patterned and cut the jacket in our Rio Rancho fabric and full grain leather. She had it sewn by a professional shop that has the proper machinery to sew with leather.

Thanks to Alysia for sharing this great jacket, and congratulations to Phillip. Here’s to his bright future!
