ABOUT CAPE INFINITY
Cape Infinity and Cape Infinity Lite both are made from 100% organic Himalayan wool which is ethically sourced from free roaming sheep from the high altitudes of the Himalayas. Twice a year sheep herders bring their sheep to a central point where the government representatives help them with carefully shearing the wool. Sourcing the wool from local villages through the sheep herders allows us to keep this process in the value chain sustainable.
Cape Infinity and Cape Infinity Lite are designed in Amsterdam and handcrafted by rural skilled artisans from the northern region of India – Himachal Pradesh and Harayana.
Cape Infinity and Cape Infinity Lite both can be worn in several way (more than 15 different ways). It can also be styled for different occasions. Because it can be worn in different ways it can be your all-weather friend. Take a look at the video, where our founder Sindhu Holla shows various ways of wearing Cape Infinity.
Create very different yet special styles with a simple trick. We call it FLIP. When worn with a long back, the Cape Infinity looks like a jacket or dress. To turn it into a short vest, FLIP IT over 180 degrees so that the long back becomes the big warm shawl around your neck. You have a different colour and a new drape!

WASH + CARE
You can repair or reduce the damage by looking at the direction of the pulled thread and stretching it back in place. Hold your Cape about 10 cms either side of the loop and pull until you see the thread sitting back in place. That should help reduce the damage or repair it completely. If you need further advice, do email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Here is a video showing how to fix the loop.
Some amount pilling is common to all wool products and is perfectly normal. They appear where the fabric rubs against your bag or under the arms. The pills on our all-natural fabrics can be easily removed by just taking them off with your fingers.
With just a little extra care and attention you can enjoy your Cape for a lifetime or even pass it on.
If you wear your Cape a lot (which we are sure you will ) air it frequently to keep fresh instead of washing. For those who use their Cape as their travel companion , washing might become necessary. You can choose to wash the entire Cape or just the area that you think has stains. In the next question you will find information on how to wash your Cape.
Washing the entire garment:
We recommend only handwashing your cape. Washing cape in the machine may shrink the cape and misshapen it.
Fill a bucket with lukewarm water (temperature not exceeding 30 degrees Celsius or 86 degrees Fahrenheit) and add few drops of mild detergent or hair conditioner.
Dip your Cape and soak for a few minutes.. Please note that it is normal for dark colours to run color the first few washes.Wash off the soap by dipping the Cape in regular lukewarm water.
Do not wring and let the water drip out. Lay it flat to dry.
You can use the iron on a wool setting. Just remember to place a thin protective fabric between the iron and your Cape.
Washing off a stain:
Wet the stained spot with a drop of baby shampoo and a soft toothbrush, gently brush away the stain in a circular motion.
Rinse off the lather under a tap and lay flat to dry.
Iron it on wool setting using a protective cloth between the iron and your Fifth Origins Cape.
When you are not using from your Fifth Origins Cape it’s best to fold it and store it in the Fifth Origins cloth bag.
Here are some tips of how to care for your Cape Infinity (tried and tested by us)
1. Washing your Cape Infinity might not always be the right solution. We noticed that when you give your Cape a steam iron it helps to make it look fresh, removes any odour, bacteria and wrinkles. Do give it a try :)
2. A little secret that our elders use to keep the textiles smelling great is to make an herb sachet tucked in between your garments. Just bundle a couple of herbs - cinnamon sticks, cardamom, peppercorns in a small cloth/ sachet.
3. Please avoid bringing the Cape in contact with any sharp objects as this will lead to pilling and/ or getting the yarn out of it's place.
