Swans Island Blankets

  • (207) 338-9691
In the early 1990's John and Carolyn Grace moved to Swans Island off the coast of Acadia National Park and commenced a small weaving operation using local wool. They had been lawyers in Boston and had finally realized their dream of living close to the land in Maine. They knew that many Maine islands were traditionally sheep islands, and that the wool they produced was used in textile mills that today stand idle or have found new uses. The Graces decided to create wool blankets by hand using > MORE time-honored and still-remembered traditions. They found people who raised sheep and learned to make their own dyestuffs, to weave on hand looms, and gradually discovered how to produce beautiful blankets. Today Swans Island Blankets is known as Swans Island. The original promise the Graces made to themselves and their customers to hand-make everything in authentic fashion and always to the highest possible standard continues to be the foundation of the company. Expanding from blankets to other woven products using the winter and summer weight fabrics was a natural step. Now people can decorate their homes with throws and pillows, wrap baby in merino blankets, and wear beautiful Swans Island scarves and wraps. Swans Island is a company and a community centered in Maine and determined to create objects of beauty and utility in authentic and earth-friendly ways. Everyone is invited to contact the company or visit in Maine.^ LESS
