Viking Hood

So, I mentioned sometime back that I'd made a viking hood. Here it is.
100% wool in a rust color (which this photo is making it look more orange)
The stitching is done in cotton thread for durability. I tend to use cotton thread on garb especially if its going to be washed. I do work in silk but, seriously for men's garb and how hard they can be on it sometimes, experience has proven that silk thread doesnt hold up.
The seams internally are machine sewn but all hems and such are hand stitched.

Pleased with how it came out though I think ill try another and line it with linen.

  1. Cateline,
    Is the stitching just decorative or is it how you sewed the hood? I'm researching Viking clothing construction and embellishment for Turi (and myself).
    Thanks,
    Marguerite
