Unique Wedding Gift for the Couple

Finding a unique wedding gift for the couple can be challenging.

Swans Island products make exquisite gifts and come elegantly packaged in a Swans Island gift box. Handcrafted with care, using the best fibers and processes, Swans Island blankets and throws are a one-of-a-kind way to commemorate new beginnings.

Keepsakes for the Bride and Her Maidens

/ , , , , , , , , , , ,

Wedding season is a time of excitement here in Maine! With an endless array of breathtaking vistas and waterfront locations, many flock here for their special day. Recently, our friend Jessie tied the knot, and as a special thank you to her bridesmaids, she gifted them with Swans Island grey-and-white wraps, each trimmed in silk and bearing the Swans Island weaver’s mark.

We think it’s the perfect keepsake for any bridal party: they are luxuriously soft, add a touch of elegance, and their sleek and simple design make them versatile enough to be worn at a relaxed rehearsal dinner, a pre-wedding bridal celebration, as well as the grand ceremony itself.

The Swans Island Story

/ , , , , , , , ,

Swans Island isn’t just a blanket. It is a story. It is history and tradition interwoven with craft, vision and painstaking labor. We take pride in every aspect of our production, and we think it’s what sets us apart from other blanket companies.

Some of our fleece comes from a 250-acre sheep farm in Winterport, not too far from our Northport studio, and is spun into yarn at Green Mountain Spinnery in Vermont, where it is then scoured in organic soap, its lanolin preserved for loft and moisture-wicking warmth. When it arrives at our dye house, we give it the best treatment possible, imparting dyes that are comprised of plants, minerals and insect shells, and that have been tested and modulated until its color is just right. Once dyed, our yarn is transformed into blankets, throws, and accessories by our team of talented weavers, who use air-assisted shuttle looms that require the utmost precision, patience, and delicacy.

Our minimalist design gives each of our products a timeless feel. Our respect for traditional processes and hand-crafted perfection make each Swans Island product a work of art, as well as a treasure for the home. Tour our website, or check out our blog, for more information on our history, process, and products. Or visit our studio to feel the luxurious warmth of Swans Island blankets.
