Hand woven, 100% undyed, Ontario grown Norbouillet wool.
Twill weave, natural grey with white.
A plastic free ‘raincoat’.
Two layers of wool are proving to be quite effective in keeping us dry underneath.
The ‘raincoat’ is an unlined, knee length, zippered front, hooded coat, with a slight flare. It has two zippered sleeve pockets, two wool-lined hand warming pockets, and two large front cargo pockets with side openings.
Alone, it will keep the garments underneath dry in a light drizzle.
The separate hood, pulled over the head to add a second layer of wool, protects the chest, shoulders and head from rain, snow or wind. This hood can be worn over any garment in any season. Wool soaks up and holds 25% of its weight in water and keeps you warm even when wet. When tested in a Montreal “all day rain”, the under layer of wool was dry come evening. Suitable for most conditions we generally find ourselves in.
The hood is of the same fabric as the coat, but felted slightly for better absorbency and wind resistance.
