Absolutely loving this Woollen Poncho which we custom made for a client so much that we’ve decided to add it to our online shop.
Made from a woollen blend fabric which we’ve run metal poppers down both reinforced long sides and a pullcord through the short ends. The configuration of the poppers we’ve done, allows the poncho to be fastened widthways as a poncho and also lengthways as something you’ll be able to climb in to sleep, pulling the corded ends in to fit around you.
Weight with bag approx 3kg
The front poncho pocket is based on a hoody style with internal pockets, so you can put your hands in from its sides. The neck is reinforced and the hood is a delight in itself.
With detailed stitching, flattened hood seams, and an Oilskin Stuffsack thrown in to keep it nice when not in use, this really oodles with loveliness.
Please note that because the Ponchos take two blankets sometimes they won’t be EXACTLY the same shade of colour, although we try and match them the best we can, no two colours of blankets are ever exactly the same.
BLUE’S BUSHCRAFT BOUTIQUE – UNITED KINGDOM
“Keep it Simple & Sew it Well”
Is our motto, all our items are handmade, we source the best materials and make everything to order, paying attention to detail and quality check our work throughout. We make our products because we want to and not because we have to, there’s a big difference. You are buying our time, our skill and craftsmanship and every item we make is unique. We don’t mass produce or rush our items, they are hand drawn, cut out, sewn and assembled and given the care and attention they deserve.
The Oilskin we use is a Traditional 120z Cotton Drill Fabric treated with an Antique Wet-Look wax waterproofing. The fabric is also used in the production of the Barbour clothing line and we use their “Barbour Thornproof Wax Dressing” supplied in a tin to re-poof the fabrics. The canvas we use throughout our store is both a 12oz and a slightly heavier 14oz Cotton Duck Canvas, popular with army tents etc., waterproofed using a dry wax method which would need to be reproofed using a Re-Proofing Bar. Canvas is stiffer than the oilskin and thus slightly more bulkier and heavier when rolled or folded up.
We use either a 55% Wool / 45% Blend on our Oilskin Ponchos & Bedrolls & a 75% / 25% Blend on our Hybrid All-Terrain Bedrolls. We find that the 55% wool one offers warmth, robustness, a nice solid weight and a stable sewing platform while the 75% woollen one offers you that little bit more luxury for the Hybrid Bedroll. We tend to steer clear of the 100% wool fabrics as one they tend to make you itch and second the fabric isn’t as compact to sew to.
WASHING INSTRUCTIONS: OILSKIN – Do not machine wash, do not use hot water and do not dry clean as this will remove the waterproofing wax and oils which cannot be replaced. Brush off any mud and debris and then wipe it down using cold water only. We would recommend to reproof our Oilskin products using “Barbours Thorn Proof Wax Dressing” which comes in a tin. Be sure to follow the product instructions written on the tin.
CANVAS – Again, avoid machine washing, hot water or dry cleaning, but you can wipe down with a warm damp cloth after removing any dirt or debris. We recommend our own “Re-proofing Bars” available from our shop to reproof any of our Canvas products.
