207 Kinsale Cloak


One size for men and women (finished length from center back neckline to hemline is 55"/139cm).

This billowing full-length cloak was a tradition in rural Ireland and can still be seen today in West County Cork, and at historic reenactments everywhere. The romantic garment fastens at the neck and features a detachable loosely-fitted hood. It may be worn loosely over the head or down over the shoulders as an over-cape. Pattern includes fascinating historical lore, notes for hand weavers, and instructions for finishing touches.

Suggested fabrics: Handwoven wool, wool, velvet, corduroy, poplin, denim, chintz, or weather-treated fabrics.
