Irish tweed isn't only for the colder months. You can see that this finely crafted women's poncho has a lightweight feel that is perfect for the warmer temperatures. Its colors are distinctly fresh and speak to the spring/summer hues found in nature along the Ring of Kerry, Ireland. This can also be referred to as an Irish walking cape. It's perfect as a light cover when you are meandering through your favorite trails. Our customer, Mary, also says that she thinks this ruana poncho shawl is an excellent alternative at work, replacing those stuffy suit coats that she's required to wear from time to time. This Irish poncho features fine details like the 3 tweed covered buttons and side slits that allow for better movement of your arms. Irish tweed is a fine wool fabric in a twill weave that is durable and strong. And since wool is a resilient fiber with a bit of elasticity, it drapes well, making it an excellent choice for a poncho. We're certainly impressed with this new women's poncho crafted by our maker-partners at Kerry Woollen Mills in Co. Kerry, Ireland. And as always, with our "Delight or Make it Right" promise, you'll be satisfied or we'll work with you to make it right. No hassles here!
