Rare Wool blankets are made from naturally brown and black sheep

John and Carolyn Grace began making woolen blankets in the 1990s in their home on Swan Island, off the coast of Maine. They used wool from the local sheep woven on handlooms and time-honored techniques of production, including the creation of their own all-natural dyestuffs.
