Viking Age Rectangle cloak and Skjoldehamn Hood in Fjord Blue.
This is the last batch of Cloaks and Hood available in this shade of lighter blue than our Woad blue.
These items are from a 80% wool blend we were sampling before settling on our 100% wool in a larger color range that you can find here - https://www.lykosleather.com/listing/688895789/viking-wool-rectangle-cloak-in-a-range
We also have a great selection of penannulars as an upgrade option, like the one pictured that is casted directly from a rusk settlement with a dip in the pin to hold more fabric. you can find that one, like the original without any stones or with a variety of stones of your choice here -
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. Cloaks were typically worn offset, overlapping the cloak over your dominant hand leaving it unhindered by the cloak.
Cloaks could be embroidered, or trimmed with tablet woven braid. Typically they hung to somewhere between the knee and the ankle depending on the wealth of the owner.
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.
We also have a range of beautiful Diamond Twill dual tone cloaks as well -
These cloaks are pre-washed 70% wool and can be washed gently on wool cycle with wool detergent and hang-dried to insure longevity or dry-cleaned when necessary.
All of the garb offered here is the result of a Collaboration with Nornewoven, that we have worked toward for years. We've searched long and hard to find beautiful fabric that we ended up importing form Sweden. We've tirelessly studied historical finds as well as embroideries, jewelry pieces, stone carvings , sagas and more to ensure we offer garb that is as close to what the people of the viking age wore as we possibly can.
After carefully cutting them to size we professionally serge all raw edge to insure they will never come apart before top stitching, all with a color coordinated and discreet high quality sewing thread.
Every aspect of these pieces are a result of deep respect of the old ways, passion for crafting and history and our desire to live lives in balance with all the teachings the norse paganism offer.
Beyond that we wish to share all of knowledge that we gather with others, to strengthen our community, honoring the gods and insuring that these teaching will continue dig their roots deeper into the ground and for the branches to grow and stretch until we are all as solid as the mighty Yggdrasil.

First off, LOVE the color. But it has issues. The cloak smells and started falling apart as soon as I opened it. I cleaned excess "fuzz" off, and began to hand wash - Big mistake. Almost all the fuzzy properties of the cloak were lost in the water. Took hours to clean up. The cloak is 'fine' now, but has not retained it's original condition. Not a fan.
