We're completely hooked on these heirloom-quality handwoven blankets created on the Maine coast. Swans Island's founders—two Boston lawyers turned rural artisans—dedicated themselves to preserving a once-thriving art using organic wool fleeces obtained from local flocks. Dyes are hand mixed in the studio from natural products like indigo and osage orange (giving the yarn those lovely rich hues). Their team of six dedicated weavers works on traditional looms, with a single artisan weaving each blanket from start to finish. The best part? You can ship your throw off to the blanket hospital for a wash or a repair anytime—guaranteeing this cozy throw will last a lifetime (or two).
