Timeless. Stylish. Thick and Warm. This knee-length hand knit hooded coat is surprisingly very warm, and fun to wear. All the comforts of wool: softness, comfort, classic style, but is very easy to care for with acrylic/wool blend yarn.
Make no mistake, this not a sweater, but an option for a winter coat. I've worn my own in 10-20 degree NYC weather with high winds and have been warmer in it than I have while wearing store bought wool coats. And, with my hand made mittens or its matching hand muff along with any hand made scarf, I'm extremely warm and comfortable. :o)
The thick and soft belt can also be worn as a scarf.
The sleeves are cuffed or can be worn straight for extra coverage. The hood is non-constricting, yet stays in place for extra comfort from cold temperatures. Faux-fur lining can also be added to hood and cuffs. With Fisherman (Ivory) color, faux-fur lining creates a very sleek and stylish look.
This hand knit hooded coat is made with LionBrand's Wool Ease Thick & Quick wool/acrylic yarn which comes in a variety of rich colors.

And unlike most coats, it's machine washable and dryable. And again, comfortable. Feels like wearing a warm, comfortable blanket outside.
So far, every time I've worn my own, I've received direct compliments from people everywhere I go. Nicest compliment was someone getting up from their subway seat from the other side of train to come over and tell me how much she loved it. :o)
