Pendleton Woolen Mills and Timberline Lodge have a long history together.

Pendleton Woolen Mills donated wool yarn and fabric scraps used for the original 1975 restoration effort by the Friends of Timberline. This wool was used for weaving, rug hooking, upholstery, and more -- to replicate the original textiles found at the Lodge. Volunteers handcrafted more than a hundred burlap-backed hooked rugs between 1980 and 2000. After years of service in guest rooms at Timberline Lodge, the rugs have been retired and are available for purchase.

Many of these historic rugs will be on display during the Timberline Lodge 75th Anniversary Showcase and Trunk Show on Thursday, August 2nd. We hope to see you there!
