Good Day Lords and Ladies! This dashing European wool cloak is a timeless classic worn throughout Europe for centuries. The heavy wool cloak’s distinctive drape and full, gathered shoulders will comfortably accommodate anyone's frame, and will add a distinguished presence to any attire. Whether you need formal outerwear, or are looking to add the perfect cold weather wool wrap to your period clothing, this fitted cloak will make a statement of style wherever you go!
This Renaissance cloak is full enough to wear over a bodice, doublet or cold-weather gear, but not so voluminous that you have to struggle with large amounts of fabric. The shoulders are fitted to prevent the neckline from sliding on you and is fastened with your option of sturdy closures (pewter clasp, reinforced ribbon, or button closure).
This heavy wool winter cloak comes with a deep, lined hood that is designed to hold its form while remaining supple. The cloak is made of a beautiful heavy coat-weight wool and may be accentuated with your choice of a smooth satin, heavy twill, or authentic linen lining that will glide over your attire and provide additional warmth and comfort. All seams are tightly surged and finished and the inside neck seam expertly hand stitched to last for years.
In different time periods, cloaks were worn at different lengths, but as a general rule of thumb they should not drop below the ankle (especially for walks along muddy paths). If you desire your cloak shorter, we also offer CAPES in appropriate lengths (most capes traditionally reach the thigh). 100% Dyed wool in this quality is hard to come by! For a cloak of similar quality with a more lordly appeal, you simply must see our dashing Lord Richard's Winter Cloak!!
