Red Wool Hood (February 2008) and Green Wool Houpeland (January 2005)

I made this red wool hood for my husband in February 2008. It was made for Ymir, one of our local Baronial events that is notorious for cold and often unpredictable weather. It’s made of fulled red wool and sewn together with silk thread. While all the seams are machine sewn they were all flat felled by hand to strengthen the garment and give them a period finish. There is no visible machine stitching and the hem was finished with oak leaf dags.
