Parks and Recreation
Around May, the great outdoors start to look pretty good. So in honor of afternoons spent in the wild, Pendleton’s unveiled a line of wool blankets branded to national parks.
It’s the wilderness equivalent of a J.Press scarf, sending coded messages to anyone wonky enough to be up on these things and maintaining a grizzled obscurity towards everyone else. And if you happen to have a favorite (thanks to a youthful evening in an Acadia lighthouse, for example), it’s a pretty good way to represent.
Granted we’re more likely to hang one over the back of a couch than haul it into a tent—but it’s good to know it’s there.
