We are always happy to help extend the life and well-being of your beloved handwoven. That’s why we operate our own blanket hospital for the cleaning and repair of all of our handwoven goods.
A basic cleaning begins at $37.50 for baby blankets, wraps and scarves, $75 per throw, $112.50 per summer weight blanket, and $150 per winter weight blanket. Cleaning includes a gentle hand wash, blocking on our antique lace frames, one hour’s worth of de-pilling, and a light pressing.
All items submitted for repair must be cleaned before they are worked on. Upon cleaning and review, we will email you with a quote for any repairs before moving forward. Repairs begin at an additional $75 per hour.
We will do everything we can to restore your blanket. Because of our gentle washing process, it is not always possible to remove deep stains.
Items to be cleaned and repaired may be sent directly to our Northport studios. Be sure to include your name, email address, phone number and your shipping address as well as a brief note about the kind of work you’d like done. Please note: we cannot accept blankets that have been stored with moth balls.
Please ship items for cleaning and repairs to:
Swans Island Company c/o Cleaning and Repairs
231 Atlantic Highway (Route 1)
Northport, ME 04849.
Please do not send payment through the mail – once we receive and review your handwoven, we will contact you to confirm receipt and give you a quote. Swans Island Company will ship your cleaned/repaired handwoven back to you free of charge.
