Wild Rose Farm
Whidbey Island, Washington
Farmer Nan Leaman of Wild Rose Farm on Whidbey Island, Washington, has been collaborating with Swans Island for years. We shepherd her shorn fleece through the scouring and spinning process and bring it in-house to custom dye and weave. We create beautiful handwoven throws in our elegant linen box for Nan to sell on the farm and give away to friends and relatives.
In 2010, we contacted Bill Laurita of Swans Island Company in Northport Maine to discuss possible collaboration. This began what is now nearing a 10- year-long working relationship.
It has been an absolute pleasure working with Swans Islands over the years as they have continued to produce the finest quality product to complement our wool. These blankets are woven with impeccable skill and attention to detail. Bill and his team are simply awesome.”
