Swans Island Company Collaboration! Jessica Ives May 12, 2016 Swans Island Company is thrilled to introduce Water Colors, the latest in our annual Special Edition throw series. This unique handloomed throw is made of certified organic Merino wool resist-dyed with all natural plant dyes, and then overdyed with indigo to create variegated, painterly shades of blue and green on each skein of yarn. When woven on our vintage looms, the dye patterns capture the nuance of light and movement on the waterways that define Maine’s interior landscape. This Special Edition is presented in collaboration with artist Jessica Lee Ives, who created an original work, The Colors of Water, inspired by this year’s throw. Her rich colors and playful brushstrokes mirror the ethereal blue and green hues of our Water Colors throw. Together, these unique pieces represent the fluid exchange between materials, processes, and traditions that define life on the Maine coast.The wool is resist-dyed with natural weld and logwood dyes, and then overdyed with indigo to create variegated, painterly shades of blue and green on each skein of yarn. When woven on our looms, this color pattern recreates the movement and light of the freshwater that defines Maine’s interior landscape. — Swans Island Company The Color of Water, exclusive hand-signed limited edition archival quality 16" x 20" giclée print.Order Print Here.Water Colors 100% Organic Merino wool throw with silk trim, hand loomed 50″ x 70″ and made in Maine.Order Throw Here.
