Pendleton Wool c1950

February 4, 2013

If you like wool be sure to visit Portland, OR! Since Pendleton is based in Oregon, you can often find amazing vintage wool at local shops. I found 2+ yeards of two different plaid patterns. The blue is c1950 and the orange is c1970.

I made a Colette Peony Dress out of the blue and simply adore it! You can view more pics on my blog. I’m making a men’s button up out of the other plaid.

I will note that these pretties did not smell so pretty. I had to wash them, then air dry them and let them sit in the garage for a week to fully cleanse them of their musk. But now they’re wonderful! And they only cost $24 apiece 🙂
