The shape of the hood is based on a find from Skjoldehamn on the Norwegian island Angoya. It's made with two rectangles sewn to each other on top of the head. This find is dated as Viking Age. Definitely a good option as part of a northmen outfit, the hood provides good insulation against the cold. In the front and back two square wedges were set in. Sewn high under the throat to protect from wind and cold. Ideal for cold days. Hood made of light brown wool. The inside was sewn with a machine, every visible stitch is hand made with linen thread. Hood bordered with dark brown wool.
Length of hood 66cm, wide 42cm
Sized to fit both men's Viking costume and women's Viking-era costume.
