This goes on my list of Things I Will Own One Day. Offering wool and lightweight summer blankets, Swans Island was started by a couple who moved to the Maine islands after having careers as lawyers in Boston. Objects of rare beauty and utility. I especially love their Rare Wool blankets, made from black and brown sheep, whose fleeces tend to go gray after a few short years. So these blankets are rare because there are only a few black and brown blankets woven each year.
