Little Red Riding Gugel

Who’s afraid of the big bad wolf?

The gugel was a type of headdress from the 14th century. Mine is made from red wool, lined with white linen and completely handsewn with waxed linen thread. Even though the wool isn’t that thick, it is surprisingly warm.┬áVery nice for cold Visby nights at Medieval Week on Gotland that aren’t quite cold enough to merit a cloak.
