WeatherWool Ponchos in Lynx Pattern and Solid Drab Color
Rebecca is wearing a Lynx Pattern Poncho with Duff border and Alex is wearing Drab with Drab border. One size Poncho fits all. Rebecca is 5’3” (160 cm) tall and Alex is 6’1” (185 cm).

PURPOSE: Another very versatile piece. It can provide protection in pretty serious weather and outdoor activity. But the Poncho will also be appropriate for city wear and social events.

Please note:  These photos show the previous generation Poncho, which did not have chest pockets, and had only one button on each side.

One of the things we really like about a Poncho is that it offers such versatility ... a large man and a small woman can wear the same poncho. (Or a woman can fit a large dog inside the Poncho with her.) And because of the generally loose fit, a wide variety of base layers is possible.

WeatherWool Poncho with Rear Hood Adjustment snugged -- Hood Pulled BackThe pictures above and below show the Hood of the Poncho pulled partway back. The Poncho's Hood is quite large and we didn't want to make it smaller because sometimes you may want to have your head deep inside the Hood. So our Hood can be adjusted not only from top and bottom but also from back and sides. Pulling the Hood back opens up the sides and allows excellent peripheral vision.

One really nice thing about ponchos is that there is not really any issue about the fit!

WeatherWool Poncho Bottom Border
This picture shows a corner of a LYNX Poncho. The lower border is a doubled layer of our FullWeight Fabric in DUFF. The doubled layer improves the overall drape of the Poncho. At the bottom left of the picture is a closeup of the ‘selvedge’ that forms the left and right borders of the Poncho. Selvedge is the fabric on the sides of a bolt of fabric. The machines that manipulate the bolt during manufacture grasp the bolt along the selvedge, which is formed when the yarn is looped back to move in the opposite direction. The selvedge has the same yarn and dyes as the rest of the bolt, but looks different because of the machinery. We felt the selvedge adds a rustic look consistent with an old-fashioned garment like a Poncho.

WeatherWool Poncho worn by our friend Joe Carpenter in Brooklyn
The Poncho above was one of our first protos, made in DRAB with a BLACK border. The production DRAB Ponchos have DRAB borders. This picture was taken at the American Field Show in Brooklyn in 2014 (wow ... 10 years!!!   And at this point, Joe is now an 'Old Friend" of ours!!). Joe Carpenter, the gent in the picture, has worn the Poncho in some interesting and severe places in Upstate New York and in Vermont. Joe is a Fireman in the Fire Department of New York.


WeatherWool Poncho has an optional inside handwarmer pouch
The pictures above and below show the inside pouch. A customer wanted to be able to ride his horses with his hands inside the pouch and his arms inside the poncho. So we added an inner pouch for him and decided this was a winning design. The inner pouch is pretty much the same as the outer pouch, but a little bit smaller so the outline of the inner pouch does not show on the outside of the garment. The zippered pocket is inside the inner pouch. In these pictures, Alex has his hands inside the inner pouch. We bust up a lot of wood because we like the fireplace cranking all winter. Alex is sitting in front of part of our woodpile. Luckily, we have great neighbors. [Although eventually the town took us to 'firewood court'! Another, story, and no big deal ...]
