  Longest Seamless Blanket - world record set by Pendleton Woolen Mills

 PORTLAND, OR, USA -- Pendleton Woolen Mills unveilled, during the Portland Home & Garden Show, a jacquard blanket measuring 453 feet, 7.25 inches which sets the world record for the Longest Seamless Blanket.

   (enlarge photo)

   
The world's Longest Seamless Blanket measures 331,800 sq inches, 2,303 sq feet (that is more square footage than the average house in Portland, Oregon.)

    The world's Longest Seamless Blanket was made in the Geronimo pattern, a design dating back to the 1900s. The Geronimo pattern is one of Pendleton's oldest designs dating back to the early 1900s.
    The Pattern is called Geronimo as the original blanket design was owned by Geronimo and he was photographed wearing this Pendleton blanket design.

   It took five people to unroll the world's Longest Seamless Blanket, stretching it out along an aisle in the E Building of the Portland Expo Center while notaries and officials with rolls of measuring taped watched and counted.

    The world's Longest Seamless Blanket was made with wool from 100 sheep and is on display during the Portland Home & Garden Show at the Expo Center in North Portland.

   This is a Northwest effort; the yarn for the blanket was dyed, carded and spun at Pendleton's Washougal, Washington mill.
  The blanket is 82% pure virgin wool/18% cotton and woven in Pendleton Woolen Mill's Pendleton, Oregon mill, which, in 2009, celebrated its centennial year.
   The world's Longest Seamless Blanket was washed, felted and bound in Pendleton's Washougal, WA mill. The blanket features coordinating black felt binding.

    Pendleton's jacquard looms, which were used to weave The Largest/Longest Seamless Blanket required 778 minutes to weave. Typically the looms weave one blanket in 12 minutes.

   The Worlds largest and longest seamless blanket, woven by Pendleton Woolen Mills, will travel to a variety of locations (follow it on Facebook) throughout 2010.

    The world's Longest Seamless Blanket will be offered for sale for $12,700 with the proceeds going to charity or at the end of the year the blanket will be divided up and donated to charity.
