Product Description

Watercolors Capes are wearable works of art. The perfect statement piece for weddings, date night, and any occasion calling for elevated style. Generously proportioned, cozy and soft, wearing a Watercolors Cape is like bringing your favorite Swans Island throw wherever you go.

Making this beautiful cape is a labor of love. First, we hand-dye our softest organic merino wool using all-natural dyes and a unique hand-tied technique. Then, working on antique looms, our weavers skillfully blend the yarns as they go. 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 piece.  The Watercolors style also comes in scarves, 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 60″ 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: This item can be customized with a hand-embroidered monogram.


  • The Watercolors 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.
