“With a combination of awe-inspiring stories and Pendleton’s beloved patterns and engaging illustrations throughout, this handsome campfire collection is the ideal addition to any adventure and a wonderful gift for families and friends who love camping,” the book’s description reads. “From beloved American heritage brand Pendleton comes this collection of family-friendly tales of adventure and discovery in the wilderness.”

Pendleton has been weaving woolens for more than 100 years in two Pacific Northwest mills. The company’s rich back story goes all the way to the 1800’s, when the beginning of their comfy, colorful designs were first born.

“The history of Pendleton Woolen Mills is one of opportunity, exploration and innovation,” Pendleton explained on its website. “British weaver Thomas Kay laid the foundation when he arrived in Oregon in 1863. His expertise lives on in Pendleton’s tweed, flannel and worsted wool apparel. Kay’s grandsons, the three Bishop brothers, opened Pendleton Woolen Mills in the early 1900s.”

It sounds like all of our upcoming weekend plans should probably revolve around cuddling up in a whole lot of flannel and diving into some wild adventures. Marshmallows required.
