White People (Me) Owning Pendleton Blankets

Dear PowWows Community,

I'm a 25 year old white guy from Germany. I've liked the idea of owning or gifting Pendleton blankets, but I've been hesitant, since I'm not sure whether or not it is appropriate for someone like me to own a blanket with cultural value that I'm not a part of. Out of respect for your culture I've been reluctant to buy a Pendleton blanket. I'm not very familiar with your culture, but I've had the feeling, that I need to better understand your views on this matter.
What do these blankets mean to you and how appropriate is it for an outsider to use these blankets out of context?
As of now, on one side I don't think I deserve to have a Pendleton blanket at home, but on the other side, this is just a gut feeling and I don't know what I'm talking about. German education just barely scratches the surface of American history, so my knowledge and understanding thereof is limited. I would dearly appreciate some clarity on this topic.

Thank you for your time!

Sincerely,
Daryl

There's a chance you might not like me ,

but there's a bigger

chance I won't care

I would think a Pendleton blanket would come in handy during a German winter.

The winter at the Niederrhein (Wesel), Sauerland, Eifel, at Kahler Asten, Stetten am Kalten Markt, Cologne, Hunsrück, Thüringen ???

LOL, winter can be very different in different parts of Germany.

but everywhere such a blanket will be handy, even where it is only raining in winter.

I am not sure what is worse, 1°C and rain or -20°C with sunshine.
