Local basket weaver Dale Rutherford is a true master of her craft. Honoring the island tradition of Lightship Basket making, Dale puts her own twist on every piece she creates, bringing it into the modern realm. These baskets are petite reminders of the island's history and are the perfect addition to a growing collection or start for a burgeoning one. Available in three shapes & sizes, sold separately.
Oval with Scrimshaw: Oblong shape with a faux ivory handle featuring a painted scene of the Rainbow Fleet rounding Brant Point.
Itsy Basket: Quite small at only one inch in diameter. Round, following the more traditional baskets shape.
Tall Basket: A more traditional shape featuring a very subtle diagonal weave pattern that wraps around the basket.
Designed in the late 1960’s for Nantucket Looms, our classic boatneck sweater never goes out of style. Originally designed to be worn without a shirt underneath, the boatneck can be worn in a more fitted fashion or select the next size up for a looser fit. The saddle stitch shoulders and high boatneck collar are distinctive to this sweater. Unisex sizing.

I love my oval mini lightship basket with the scrimshaw handle of the rainbow fleet. I also own her heart shaped basket. Dale is a master & I am proud to own two of her baskets from The Looms. Am hooked - maybe there are more to add someday!
