Black Thorn Cape I

Black Thorn Cape I


From one fold,
a garment finds shape.
From one opening,
a body finds force.

A cape woven using a technique called 'double weave' with two layers woven simultaneously, one plane above the other, joined in the round for the back half of the garment and separated to create the front panels.

Black Thorn wool makes up both warp and weft in a plain weave construction, creating a textured cloth reminiscent of the buckled landscape where it originates. 

Graphite hatch marks climb the spine with a single, broken mark along each front panel. Hemlines are sewn by hand once the cloth is removed from the loom, a time-intensive finishing process that leaves elegant evidence of the hand. 

Wear loose like a cape or with front panels wrapped around the body to protect from the elements. 

This garment can also be custom woven and sized to fit.

Sizing and Fit: Approximately 84" from back hem to front hem; 48" in width.

Care: We've wet finished the cape in warm water and tumble dried it on low to finish the weaving process. We recommend that you wash it by hand in cold water with gentle soap. A good pressing with steam will return the wool to it's current lustrous state. 

Minor imperfections are inherent to the hand crafted process and should be celebrated as such.
