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. 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 grey wool. This type of hood dates back to the Viking Age and is the perfect complement to the top layer of a Viking outfit.
