A pull-over hood with short mantle and shoulder gusset, based on the Herjolfsnes and London finds. This is a Nockert, Type 3 / Norlund Type II hood, for those familiar with that typology.
Hoods with dagged or cut edges are well documented in the period. They are in seen in 'Book of the Hunt' by Gaston Phoebus, the 'Tres Riches Heures' of the Duc de Berry, as well as illuminations and marginalia.
Extended face edge can be turned back or pulled forward for cold weather wear. This hood may be worn as a hat (click thumbnail to see other views). Perfect for wear with any of our 14th C. or early 15th C. garments. No visible exterior machine stitching.
