College of the Atlantic

Bar Harbor, Maine

When College of the Atlantic wanted to make an impression on the donors to their endowment campaign, they approached Swans Island. Incorporating fleece from the sheep raised at the College’s agriculture training farm in Bar Harbor, we spun, dyed and wove a 100% wool blanket that was given to each donor as a token of appreciation. We created a unique blanket for this occasion presented in a linen bag with the COA logo stitched to the front.

College of the Atlantic recently commissioned custom blankets to give as appreciation gifts to our generous supporters. We felt the blanket would be such a unique and special gift. The response has been extraordinary.

Many have commented that, of all the appreciation gifts they have received, these are of the highest quality and certainly the most special. Everyone at the Swans Island Company has been great to work with, and we can’t thank them all enough for their help with this project.”
