Courtesy BUMP, I think this could be promising.
Haha thank you! Definitely gonna be a nice run. I’ll make sure to keep everyone updated as samples come in and hopefully that garners some more interest.

I can probably make it happen with about 25 interested and front the costs to meet the minimums. I’m confident that once people get their hands on the final product they’ll go fast.

It is by no means certain. There’s a lot of debate about it and many believe this is the material. As you can see from these examples, the type of wool I’m using in fact does wrinkle and fray. View attachment 205400 View attachment 205401 View attachment 205402 View attachment 205403

To each his own then man. Tbh, the material you posted doesn’t look any closer to the original as a match. It’s an interest thread and folks will be able to decide if they like the look when the sample arrives. I, like others, own the MoW wool cape, but I felt that it was too much like a fleece blanket for my liking. However a lot of people like it and recommend it. At the end of the day it comes down to preference unless you’ve got the original in hand.
