This warm and thick blanket is a work of art. This wool blanket is made in the USA and the pattern design has been a collaboration with Tlingit artist Preston Singletary. The image on this blanket represents Raven, a shape-shifter who often employs crafty schemes to achieve his goals. In this story, the old chief who lives at the head of the Nass River keeps his precious treasures — the sun, the moon and the stars — locked away inside beautifully carved boxes. Raven steals this light and makes his escape into the sky, carrying the sun in his mouth. The sun represents enlightenment being given to all people.
This Pendleton blanket is part of Blankets that Give Back and a portion of the proceeds from this blanket will be donated to the American Indian College Fund to help support tribal colleges. This blanket measures 64" x 80". It is unnapped; felt bound, pure virgin wool/cotton material. The fabric is woven in the American Pendleton mills. Note: this blanket is dry clean only.

Pendleton has been a family-owned business for 150 years, and for 104 of those years they've been weaving world class woolens in the Northwest Mills of the USA. Their expertise and technology has grown over the years, and they have translated that experience into a host of other luxury fabrics. But their legacy of quality will never change. You can rely on a Pendleton for a lifetime of comfort and beauty.
