Which dates it back to more than 60+ years old. This is a beautiful ivory cream wool with vibrant red, green and black stripe.In excellent condition for its age no holes, rips, or tears. In last photo I see what looks to be a blemish but its just the wool material a darker spot.. I have owned it from years here in Oregon where they were founded.... Here is a bit of history. The company's roots began in 1863 when Thomas Lister Kay made a transcontinental trek to the west coast and began working in Oregon's woolen mills. He went on to open his own woolen mill, the Thomas Kay Woolen Mill in Salem, Oregon. Kay was an immigrant from England and a weaver by trade. He had worked in various textile mills on the east coast of the United States. Before opening his own mill in Salem, he helped to set up only the second mill in Oregon at Brownsville. Kay brought his oldest daughter, Martha Ann "Fannie" Kay, into the business and after learning the operation and management of the mill, she became her father's assistant. In 1876 Fannie married retail merchant C. This proved to be a great benefit to Kay's company and to the Bishop enterprises in the combination of manufacturing and retail sales. The Bishops passed their expertise and knowledge to their three sons: Clarence, Roy, and (Robert) Chauncey. Since the early 1900s, Pendleton Woolen Mills has honored America's National Parks with a collection of distinctive park blankets. Each blanket has a Pendleton label signifying its authenticity and special woven label with the park name and image of an important natural feature. National Park Blankets are still woven right here in our Pacific Northwest mills, just as they were nearly 100 years ago. In 1909 the family reopened the defunct Pendleton Woolen Mills. The town of Pendleton, Oregon backed the family in their new business venture and the Bishops company also took over the name Pendleton Woolen Mills. The move to eastern Oregon made sense for the business because eastern Oregon was sheep country and having wool producers near the mills allowed the mills to significantly cut production costs.
