Katahdin Blanket Capes


Product Description

Katahdin Blanket Capes are a graceful and versatile compliment to every wardrobe. With an exquisite drape and five unique, hand-dyed colorways to choose from, Katahdin Capes let you wear your favorite blanket everywhere you go! Generously proportioned, cozy and soft, this cape is slightly larger than our other capes.

We make these unique blanket capes in our Maine studio. First, we hand-dye our softest organic merino wool using all-natural dyes. Then, working on antique looms, our weavers skillfully craft each piece.  No two capes are exactly the same.  Woven (not cut!) selvedge edges and our weaver’s mark in the front corner are the signs of an authentic handwoven Swans Island cape.  The Katahdin style also comes in throws, blankets and pillows.

Content:  100% certified organic Merino wool.  All natural dyes.

Origin:  Made in the USA.  Hand-dyed and handwoven in our Maine studio.

Dimensions:  50″ width x 70″ height. Neck opening measures approximately 5″

Sizes: One size –  fits most adults.

Care: Professionally dry clean.

Packaging:  Each cape comes in our signature linen box, perfect for gifting.

Customization:  Capes can be customized with a hand-embroidered monogram or date.


  • The Katahdin Blanket Cape is woven by hand in our studios with hand-dyed yarns using all-natural dyes.
  • Each handwoven product is one of a kind.
  • Due to the unique nature of all-natural, hand-dyed and custom-spun yarns, there may be slight variations from what is shown here.
  • Colors of handwoven items may vary slightly due to dye lot variables as well as computer monitor variations.
  • Woven to width, this cape has only one simple seam around the neck, stitched by the experts in our Northport finishing room.
  • Each cape has the Swans Island weaver’s mark – the symbol of an authentic Swans Island handwoven product.
