In a subtle stripe pattern of deep mahogany and brown-black, the long front cape panels give the wrap an elegant look while providing added warmth and comfort for your hands and arms.It was initially suggested that this was squirrel fur, and further research seems to narrow it to the marmot, of the squirrel family.
