"SO USEFUL and practical- yet classy"

I cant tell yu how many times I reach for this. It gives me some added warmth and I love that it goes with anything- jeans or dressy! Choice of white has been good as the colr is good in winter as well as the cooler days of summer or too much air conditioning! Love it!

"Warm Cape"

This is absolutely worth it! I wore to church and to stores. Dressy and casual. Easy to don and head out the door. Great for that in between weather of not yet cold enough for parka or wool coat and wanting more than a sweatshirt hoodie. At first I couldnt find the button holes, but they are skillfully part of the crochet work.
