As Jane Austen will attest, everyone needs a red woolen walking cloak, and Britex Fabrics just got in a new shipment of cardinal red wool coating. Laura from The Jane Austen Centre graciously created a tutorial for a full-length hooded cloak – perfect for a chilly afternoon stroll to your favorite tea shop, or a midnight saunter to a romantic moon-lit assignation. She says, “Beautiful, bright red cloaks were common countryside wear for several decades during extended Georgian era. Well-established garb by the onset of the Regency, they lasted well into the 1830s, although they were somewhat out of style by then. They were made of wool and often had large hoods.” We adore this.
