Skjoldehamn Winter Gugel


One of the biggest archaeological finds, in terms of historical clothing, occurred in Skjoldehamn, Norway, where a well-preserved cowl was discovered in a Viking tomb. The Skjoldehamn Winter Gugel brings this intriguing style into the modern age. This heavy, wool blend cowl is based directly on the one found in the tomb. It sits comfortably on the shoulders, and its wide, square-shaped brim ends in a corner at the center of the chest. Its pointed hood covers the head and ears nicely, keeping them warm in wintry weather. The Skjoldehamn Winter Gugel comes in brown, grey, and autumn green, and it is a must-have article of clothing for winter Renaissance fairs, particularly for those with Viking-themed ensembles.
