"Exactly what I was looking for!"

It's so versatile, warm and comfy. You can wear as much under it as you want and still have the carefree poncho look. And it has pockets!

"My Forever coat"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Ive been looking for a classy black jacket for quite a few years. This hooded cape is meticulously made and fits the bill perfectly. Just got it and hoping against hope it wont pill over the years. Will leave another review if it does. Its elegant and looks a lot more expensive than it was.

"I will wear this a lot!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I have several ruanas. This one is warmer than most wool-blend ruanas, and just a little heavier, The crochet work is all along the edges - hard to see in the photo, but they are crocheted flowers connected by two loose (not tacked down) strands of crochetwork. I am a little concerned that I might catch those on something, but I intend to be careful. I love this and will wear it often.
