Viking Age Rectangle cloak in Pine.
These cloaks can be worn in multiple ways to insure you stay dry, warm and comfortable thanks to viking age ingenuity and the natural benefits of wool. Cloaks provided protection from the cold, from the wind, and to a degree, from the rain.
Rectangle cloaks were typically worn offset, overlapping the cloak over your dominant hand leaving it unhindered by the cloak, they didn’t have hoods but could be fashioned and pulled up over your head to protect you from the rain or combined with our skjoldehamn hoods.
Measuring at 64 X 54 inches //163 x 137 centimeters it will surely meet all your needs through your reenactment journey. at this size they are also great as a top cover to keep your warm and night or to invite someone to snuggle up in front of a warm fire.
Typically they hung to somewhere between the knee and the ankle depending on the wealth of the owner.

Cloak came very quickly and exactly as described. I've bought the hood as well in the past to match this piece. So buyers do note this doesn't have a "hood" unless you fold the cloak that way. Look up some tutorials on folding your cloak in the style you like. What you see me wearing is the simplest single shoulder fold + the hood Lykos sells!
