LOS ALTOS -- Pendleton Woolen Mills will open a new retail location here on Friday.

Pendleton sells woven blankets, home decor and men's and women's clothing, much of it inspired by Native American designs. The company, which has headquarters in Portland, Ore., also owns and operates two of the country's few remaining woolen mills, in Oregon and Washington. The mills have been updated with modern looms and more environment-friendly technology.

The Los Altos grand opening will include a series of special promotions starting on Friday and ending Monday, including raffles and giveaways. The store opens at 10 a.m. at 231 Main St.
