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 with linen lining, there's no need to worry about the itch of wool on sensitive skin areas.
Materials: Wool outer, linen lining.
Manufacturing process: Machined internal construction, visible stitches by hand.
Sizing: One Size fits Most (up to a head circumference of 62cm)
Historical foundation/period: Late Dark Ages/Early Medieval
