The #207 Kinsale Cloak sewing pattern by Folkwear originates from Ireland where it has been worn for centuries. These full length cloaks of ancient origins were generally made from cloth woven from the native black sheep s wool, which provided a natural water repellant.

The social changes wrought by the Potato Famine of 1846 saw a decline in the cloak s popularity; however, lined with black linen, silk, or satin, it may still be seen in West County Cork today.


The cloak of the pattern will reach ankle-length on a 5 7" person. Lined and hand gathered into a wide collar, it falls in small unpressed pleats to a gracefully curved hem. The cloak fastens at the neck with a large hook and eye.

The Folkwear version offers an optional detachable hood for women that buttons to the cloak under the collar. It may be worn down over the shoulders as an overcape, or pulled up and fitted over the head with ties as a loosely fitted hood. Without the hood, the cloak still looks as dashing on men as it did in centuries past.
