Kyrtle, Gored, Wool, c. 900-1100, MADE TO ORDER

The cut of our Gored Kyrtle is based on a number of extant garments which share similar patterning details, specifically, the Skjoldehamn kyrtle (rcd to 1029AD) and Kragelund man's kyrtle (1045-1155).

This kyrtle falls into the "Nockert Type 1" classification, having a tubular torso. The lower edge is full due to gores inserted into the side and/or center front and back. The neckline has a slight V shape taken from the Skjoldehamn kyrtle (shown at right). The sleeves are tapered to the wrist, and has a square gusset under the arm for freedom of movement.

As with all of our garments, cut and construction are based on extant examples and historical practices. Specific details will vary from garment to garment based on size and fabric selected. In order to make the best use of the fabric, larger pieces may have secondary seaming and/or pieces.

This product has been developed in consultation with the Authenticity Officers for Regia Anglorum in the US and UK, as well as the Authenticity Officers for the Vikings UK and NA.
