The Perfect Winter Blanket

In Northport, Maine, a group of craftspeople hand-dye & hand-weave the most beautiful wool blankets I've ever seen. They use only the softest fleece, hand-dye the yarn with all natural materials, weave by hand, and finish the edges with silk threads. Each Swans Island Blanket is then wrapped around cedar planks and placed in a linen storage bag. While all of this care & attention is not inexpensive, I think you'll find it's worth every penny.
