Wool Capes




A friend recently visited The Textile Museum in Washington, DC and sent me some photographs of what she saw. I thought you, too, would enjoy seeing some unusual wool clothing, so here are the pictures for you to see.

The top picture is a Turkish shepherd wearing the traditional wool felt cape called a "kepenek".

The second picture is a traditional felt burka from the Daghestan region of Russia in the southwestern part of the country.
