Capotes are still popular today. Some folks choose to use Pendleton blanket weight jacquard fabric; others go the more traditional route and cut apart a blanket.
Creative Customer Susan shared this picture of three capotes made using Pendleton wool.
Just imagine traveling through the mountains on a snowy day, wrapped in a thick, warm, woolen capote! At the end of the day, a coat like this could become your sleeping bag -- just pull up the hood and slide your hands into the sleeves and you're snuggled up for bed.
Have you turned a favorite Pendleton blanket or fabric into a capote (or other style of coat)? We'd love to see it!
