Product Description

Heritage Throws are inspired by traditional New England textiles.  This simple stripe pattern was one of the original Swans Island Blanket designs and over thirty years later, it continues to be one of our most popular. This classic design imparts distinctive comfort and rustic sophistication to any style of decor.

The grey wool base in our Heritage Throws is sourced from local farms and contains a blend of white Corriedale fleeces and dark rare wool fleeces. The stripes are made with our Natural Colors hand-dyed Merino wool, and the woven-in edges are pure silk. Handwoven in our Maine studio, these simple Heritage Throws feel timeless yet surprisingly modern.  These throws come in our signature linen box, perfect for gift-giving or safe keeping.
