Each Swans Island blanket is hand crafted by local highly skilled artisans, using traditional time honored techniques. The company carefully selects its wool, useing pure fine grade organic merino wool as well as blends of local sustainable wool. The wool is carefully washed with organic soap to maintain a higher level of lanolin, which ensures a wool that is softer to the touch. The dyes used are natural eco dyes and in some cases a blend of undyed wool provides natural color hues.
The end result is a beautiful lasting product that is sure to become a treasured keepsake and will be passed down for generations to come, as it brings with it, the stories of our lives.
Our Swans Island Blankets are a winter weave, which means there are two layers of wool to ensure warmth during the cold winter months. They can also be monogrammed for a more personal touch, and come beautifully packaged in a keepsake linen bag with cedar slats. Blankets normally ship within 7 to 14 days.
Sizes: All are available in either Double/Queen (90" x 90") or King (110" x 90") and most are also available in twin (70" x 90")
