This is the Merino wool cloak woven with Celtic knots that evoke the 9th-century illuminated manuscript of the four Gospels, The Book of Kells. The cloak’s spiral and interlaced patterns are iconic Celtic designs found throughout The Book of Kells, symbolizing the continuity of life. Interwoven zoomorphic motifs on the border evoke man’s symbiotic relationship with nature. The cloak consists of 100% Merino wool, a fleece renowned for its softness and considered to be the finest wool available due to its approximately 50,000,000 fiber count—3X more than typical breeds. At a generous 71" the garment envelops the entire upper body like a blanket and its tight weave is naturally resistant to wind, warding off cool breezes while still allowing freedom of movement. Its 51" drape tapers gently below the waist. Gray. (1 lb.)
