Alter Years PAY016 "Irish" Kinsale Cloak.
Due to the wet climate of the country, the Irish have always worn cloaks of one sort or another. The fashion of a full-length collared cloak with or without a hood started in the early 18th century. By 1730 they were found all over Ireland. They have also been widely adopted by modern Renaissance and Medieval living history groups for their warmth and elegance. Originally constructed in red, blue green or gray wool, by the mid 1800's they were usually made of black wool.
Alter Years offers 3 different views of this popular cloak: A) collar only, no hood, B) gathered hood with collar and C) fixed hood with collar. This pattern offers two collar variations as well: 1) rounded and 2) pointed. Instructions for lengthening or shortening the cloak are also given.
One size fits most.
