YOSEMITE VALLEY BLANKET
Expanding our California Collection, we're excited to announce the launch of our custom Pendleton Yosemite Valley Blanket, celebrating one of the most iconic National Parks in the country.
Our blanket details Yosemite Valley in a shaded relief topographic map and features Yosemite Falls, Half Dome, and El Capitan, among many other incredible locations. The blanket colors reflect the dramatic granite cliffs found throughout the region.
Yosemite Valley has inspired generations of climbers, hikers, and lovers of the outdoors. Dig into our conversation with Yosemite legend Tommy Caldwell to learn about some of his favorite places in the park.
We were able to include many of the most inspiring locations found in Yosemite National Park in our custom blanket design. The key on the woven label calls out Half Dome, Yosemite Falls, and El Capitan with circle, triangle, and square markers woven into the blanket. Many of the other park highlights are also represented.
THE YOSEMITE VALLEY BLANKET
We designed the 64 X 80 inch blanket to work with Pendleton's jacquard weaving process. The wool is sourced from the highest quality sheep and is processed, dyed, and finished from end to end by Pendleton in the Pacific Northwest. Using an age-old jacquard weaving process, the front and back of the blanket are inverses of each other.
Each blanket we sell gives back to the region we're celebrating. In our ongoing partnership with 1% For The Planet, every Yosemite Valley Blanket gives back to the Yosemite Conservancy. They work to inspire people to support projects and programs that preserve Yosemite National Park and enrich the visitor experience. The Conservancy’s guided adventures, volunteer opportunities, wilderness services and bookstores help visitors of all ages to connect with Yosemite.
TRAILS OF CONNECTION
One of the most inspiring hiking trails in the West is the iconic John Muir Trail. This trail starts in Yosemite Valley and ends 211 miles to the South at Mt. Whitney. The JMT passes 14,000-foot peaks, thousands of lakes, and innumerable canyons and granite cliffs, ultimately finishing in Yosemite Valley. Explore the Half Dome and Mt. Whitney glasses to build a collection of some of the most iconic peaks in the United States.
