Capes and Cloaks

Post by silverfish » Thu Jan 26, 2017 1:38 pm

So after a few years I have decided that for staying cool in the daytime that a metallic fabric cape or cloak is the ultimate accessory. A quick trip to the fabric store, 10 minutes of sewing and walla! Wind passes through easily, and you can turn it any direction you want to block the sun. It also looks epic in the wind.

Interesting. Post up a pic.
When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realized that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me

I have a cloak make out of polar fleece that is one of my favourite night-time accessories. Keeps the heat in really nicely and can be used as a blanket.

I was thinking of making a daytime one as well, but I was considering a light silk. I'd be interested to know how the metallic fabric works.

Ya, I was wondering about a cloak.

I'm curious about details like the density of the fabric weave. Would loose weave muslin let too much sunlight through?

Has anyone found a cloak that is breezy and cool in the sun and also warm at night?
