Original Westerley Cardigan - Navy/Brown
The Pendleton Woolen Mills cardigan debuted in 1972 and became a classic of the era. Resurrected in the 1998 Coen Brothers film The Big Lebowski, where Jeff Bridges wore his own, original sweater to bring the character of The Dude to life. Following the films success and the characters popularity, Pendleton brought the cardigan out of retirement and it's been a staple of their range ever since.

PROVENANCE AND ETHICS
Pendleton's family history in Oregon dates back to 1863 when Thomas Kay, a young English weaver opened his own mill in Salem, Oregon. In 1909 Thomas's three grandsons, Clarence Morton Bishop, Royal Thomas Bishop, and Robert Chauncey Bishop opened Pendleton Woolen Mills. Six generations later Pendleton Woolen Mills is still run in Oregon by the Bishop family.
