Introducing The Windswept Throw
A Woven Ode to Nantucket Winters

Snow laden grass lining the bluffs, fog hovering over the ocean-if there is one thing that makes up for the closed restaurants, quiet streets, and chilly temperatures during the winter months, it is the serene beauty of the island's landscapes. A walk on the conservation lands or a drive out to Great Point can be enjoyed during these months-the perfect activity to pass the time in winter on Nantucket.

For our newest collection of Handwoven Throws, our weavers drew inspiration from the dry sea grass poking up beneath fresh snow, gray days and the steel blues of the harbor water. With varying fibers in light and dark shades, the new Windswept Throw is the perfect reflection of your favorite foot paths. The array of cotton, mohair, wool and silk are sure to keep you warm upon your return from your winter walks.

Composition

60% Mohair
20% Cotton
10% Conservation Wool
10% Silk

Nantucket Conservation Foundation Wool:

Between 2005-2015, the Nantucket Conservation Foundation operated a sheep grazing program on Squam Farm as a tool for grassland management. Nantucket Looms was given the wool from these sheep to create a truly native blanket. The Conservation Wool, known for its density and warmth, has been combined with mohair, for it softness, cotton for its durability and silk for its sheen. The result is our Windswept Throw, a representation of conservation and craftsmanship.
