Vintage '80s Pendleton Western Wear Sweater

A flatlay view of a vintage pendleton sweater

I just listed this incredible Pendleton sweater.
I've only sold a handful of vintage Pendleton sweaters over the years because they're that hard to find. It's partly because they're rare, and in-demand, and partly because people hold on to them.
This one is stunning.
That turquoise blue is unique but draws the eye immediately to the pattern.
And it is a perfect counterpart to the design.
Turquoise (one of my favorites) is a stone many Indians use in their jewelry.
So choosing that color for the sweater is a perfect fit.

Pendleton released a "Western wear" line that shows attributes of Western design, western details, and often images of what the Old West was thought to be.
While it's a somewhat glamorized version of the West, I have to say I adore their native American pattern lines. It's the same quality and design they use in their blankets.
Such beauty.

The label is beautiful to me, too. I'm over-the-moon excited every time I happen across a vintage Pendleton, whether it's a wool shirt, wool sweater, or wool blanket.
That blue label is a shot of adrenaline every time I see it.
Because I know it means something quality is going to show itself before my eyes.
