Fashionable Capes are GreatBy Angela Marshall, 15th Dec 2014
I enjoy attending Christmas Fairs and meeting unusual small individual companies. This year I attended the Mary Howard Fair at Sandown Racecourse and met a small company called Eve Victoria who sells great candles, diffusers and soaps and they happen to come from my home area in South Wales. It is ideal presents for me to give friends and family a little taste of something from my home.
However, my key and wonderful purchase was my Christmas present, from my husband, a beautiful alpaca cape from Lacorine. I love capes as they are so easy to wear for so many occasions. In cold weather they are ideal for shopping when going from the cold outside to inside shops, going to a football or rugby match and you need to keep warm, wonderful to look smart over a long dress and attending a wedding. They are so versatile. My sister in law looked fantastic in the Alpaca fur hat and ideal for her when she goes walking the dogs as well as shopping and everyday wear.
It is a family run business that specialises in bringing you beautiful and unique handmade Alpaca clothing direct from Peru. All the products are created from natural herd loss which happens during the harsh Peruvian winter.
I cannot wait for Christmas when I can wear my new cape. I purchased the cinnamon colour to suit my warm muted colouring.
