Garment Information

Information about our garments, including how to order, sizing, available colors, buttons, tabs, hood tassels, and pockets.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Ordering

Half Moon garments may be ordered via this website (click here), via our Etsy Shop, or by calling our shop at (970) 874-WOOL.

Since all of our garments are handcrafted, there is generally a wait time of 6-8 weeks after ordering for delivery of Made to Order items (1-2 weeks for Ready-To-Wear pieces). If you need it sooner, we can certainly make arrangements on a case-by-case basis.

Sizing

Half Moon garments are designed to fit loosely to assure freedom of movement and allow for ample layering beneath. All styles are unisex and may be worn by both men and women.

Most of our coats and jackets come in three sizes—specifics are listed on garment pages. Capes, cloaks and ponchos come in two sizes each, but this is a matter of length and both sizes fit most.

Finished lengths are measured from the nape of the neck to the hem.

If you believe that you need custom sizing, or want to be sure of the right fit, please send us the following measurements:

  • A to A: Wrist to wrist across your back.
  • B to B: Shoulder to shoulder across your back.
  • B to A: Shoulder to wrist.
  • C to D: Nape of neck to waist, down the back.
  • C: Neck size.
  • D: Waist
  • E: Bust/Chest
  • F: Hips
  • G: Upper Arm
  • H: Thigh Girth.
  • I: Inseam
  • J: Belt to Floor.

Be sure to measure the largest part of the hips, chest and waist so we can assure you the perfect fit 🙂

Fabric & Colors

Most of our garments are constructed of thick, durable 80/20 wool/nylon blends, as well as 100% wool fabrics. All are sewn with a heavy nylon upholstery thread—made to last!

Available wool colors include the following:
Heavyweight 85/15 wool blend: black, brown, grey, forest green, maroon, and navy.
Mediumweight 80/20 wool blend: navy, maroon, grey, black, brown, and khaki.
Lightweight 100% wool:  periwinkle, purple, aqua, mint, royal blue, denim, heather, emerald, white, rose, red, rust, gold, chocolate, tan, grey, charcoal, and black.
Wool colors do tend to vary. Colors can fade with prolonged exposure to sun.

Other available materials are fleece, velvet, and linen.

Buttons

Our tagua nut “vegetable ivory” buttons come standard with every garment, and are available in many colors. Coconut and wood buttons are also available for no extra charge.

We have limited quantities of horn, bone, antler, pewter, metal, and glass buttons available for extra charge (typically $5 apiece, except for antler rosettes, which are $15, and antler tips, which are $10). We also carry gem-inlaid antler buttons for $25 apiece (please inquire for more info and photos of these).

Tabs

Leather tabs with a loop are most of our garments’ standard closures. Pictured are standard tab designs. As leather colors tend to vary widely, we try to match your garment colors as closely as we can unless you specify that you would like a particular color.

Inlaid tabs come standard on Open Front Capes and on all Cloaks; on other garments they are an extra $10 per set. For inlaid styles, be sure to specify both the tab and border colors, otherwise we will choose for you.

Inlaid Tabs: (2 colored tabs, left): Crown, Horn, Moon, Arrow.

Regular Tabs: (left to right, top to bottom) Moon, Fleur de Lis, Arrow, Wing, Horn, Standard

We will happily add extra sets of closures (leather tab and buttons) on any garment for $12 apiece (plus the cost of any specialized buttons).

We can also create custom tabs for $15/set. Examples in third image. 

Hood Tassels

We offer decorations for our hoods in several different styles.

Leather hood tassels are strips of leather cut into a fringe, and are $15.

Beaded hood tassels are a string of beads with a specialty bead or pendant at the end, and are $30.

Both types can either be sold separately or combined ($45). We can either sew them into the hood or safety pin them in so you can remove them when you like.

We offer several options in the accessories section of our shop, but can also make them to order. Unless otherwise specified, we will match the colors to the garment ordered. We have plenty of options for beads and colors and are happy to work with you to get the perfect combination!

Pockets

We know how much you like pockets (we do, too!)

We can add extra pockets to any garment, anywhere you like, for $10/apiece.

Shapes include square, rectangle, patch, pouch, and rounded.
