Maine Coast Capes


Product Description

Maine Coast Capes are a convenient way to bring along your Swans Island throw wherever you go. A lightweight, simple weave gives these capes a soft drape befitting a sophisticated cover-up. Handwoven with our fine organic merino wool these capes feel very soft and cozy. Perfect to toss on after yoga or for an evening out on the town.

Three striking bands of color define each cape.  We start with our hand-dyed Natural Colors merino, then a band of heathered grey with a touch of alpaca, and finally we finish with our creamy, soft natural organic merino wool at the top. Our signature weaver’s mark is the sign of an authentic handwoven Swans Island cape.
