Cadette Capelet in Organic Merino
The Cadette Capelet is a statement silhouette which will definitely turn heads. Wear it over a long black dress for holiday parties or as a quick way to add magnificent style to a casual outfit. Great at chilly formal gatherings or at a ski lodge. Elegant in every sense, this very special design is handcrafted from organic merino wool and dyed organically with native Rwandan plants. Shown in natural but available in any of our natural shades.
This incredible design requires approximately 128 hours for one woman to knit by hand. This time is not inclusive of the laborious task of creating the yarn and hand-dyeing it organically. Please allow 8 weeks for the delivery of this custom-created design.
