Michele Rose Orne

I’ve been knitting since I was 5. I’ve been a designer since I was 21. Now I’m a part-time designer and a full-time mother of 4, and an owner and the Creative Director at Swans Island Company, a small company of fiber lovers.

We are dedicated to creating beautiful, quality yarns, patterns and lovely woven goods. We curate the finest fibers and spin them at historic mills in the northeastern part of the USA. Then we skein-dye them by hand at our own dyehouse located on the coast of Maine. Please visit our website at swansislandcompany.com to find out more.

For yarn and pattern related inquires and comments, please email us directly at jackie@swansislandcompany.com
