A Great Coat for Great Weather
This coat belonged to my husband’s grandfather! Gary Cooper wore one like it in The Fountainhead, which was made in 1949, so I would guess this is from the 1950s.
It is only one layer of handwoven wool, with a partial lining in the shoulder area. I wear it on the rare occasion that we get an actual cold spell – it is so warm and great at blocking the wind.
Weavers in Donegal, you can be proud of your work!
