This hood pattern is based on the grave find from Skjoldehamn. Coming down over the chest and shoulders, it gives excellent coverage for retaining warmth. Wool has both lovely thermal properties but it also naturally slightly water resistant, which means getting caught in drizzle is less bothersome! Fitting snugly over the head means it sits closer around the neck; but if you're worried about the itch of wool on sensitive skin areas, be sure to pick a hood lined in linen!
Each hood is unique, so be sure to check the photos so you know what you're getting.
Measurements on the listing's is the maximum size head circumference that will fit through it.
