Raleigh, North C...






A manly cowl for cold weater and/or Sandpeople.

Material Notes

Burlap-like upholstery remnant (outside) and soft gray polarfleece (inside)





I designed it! (Tough to design a tube, eh?)

    Hey, I agree, fabric choice is part of design. I make something similar to this for motor bike riding, it has a real name, and it’s not my design, neither of which I know so unable to give credit where credit’s due. It differs from yours in that a) it’s all fleece (but the next one wont be – thanks for the design tip) and b) has a split at each side seam, and carries on down front and back. Extra cosy for the icy winds of winter on the bike. Not sure if Sandpeople would like all the extra fabric though :)

    I like it a lot! And I need one – very useful. And hey there, part of design is knowing which materials to use. You had enough design sense to choose fabrics with adequate body to “stand up” and do their job! Also, you didn’t stop with the fleece (many would have) but also gave the cowl an outer shell of wonderful texture. Got a good giggle about your “sand people” comment:)
