Black Norfolk Sea Cape
Taking the very best details from the Yarmouth Oilskins hooded smock, the Black Norfolk Sea Cape is designed to be thrown on over layers to offer protection from wind and light showers.
Yarmouth Oilskins ahve used a modern lightweight wax fabric, produced by Halley Stephenson's in Dundee, one of Britain’s oldest wax cloth mills. The emulsified wax finish cloth is lightweight breathable and weather repellent. It offers a soft tumbled appearance, keeping all the character of natural cotton. The patina will develop over time and just get better and better. The wax naturally picks up marks and creases through use, which adds to the character of the fabric itself.
The cape is unlined, with branded brass press studs under the arm , and a sturdy brass zip. It has generous deep welt pockets with a buttoned storm flap, and a three piece hood. The cape can be opened flat and used as a blanket to sit on or to huddle under. It also folds down and stows in its own cloth bag.
The fabric is washable which should be line dried and lightly ironed. After a number of washes the waxed finish may deteriorate, so we advise washing your smock as infrequently as possible.
The cape carries both am embroidered felt Yarmouth Oilskins patch and the Coastal Explorers badge to celebrate the collaboration, where the cape has been tested at sea.
