FAQ: Where is Pendleton Fabric Made?

One of the most frequently asked questions at the Woolen Mill Store is: Where is your fabric made? Is it made in the USA?

Pendleton has two mills: one in Pendleton, Oregon and one in Washougal, Washington.

The mill in Washougal produces the solids, stripes, and plaids. The mill in Pendleton weaves the jacquard fabrics. Both mills offer tours, so you can get a behind-the-scenes look at how our blankets and fabrics are made.

The Woolen Mill Store was once a working woolen mill, too -- known as the Foundation Mill! If you visit our Tapestry Gallery, you can see the original wood floor from the mill, complete with scuffs and stains from machinery. It's a lovely piece of Pendleton history that's found a second life.
