for 13th century is red, madder sort of colour. Knee length, a bit tighter than many others, open at the front. THe cloth has a more open weave than I would like and is mildly fulled, which is probably accurate enough. It replaces a tunic whose diamond twill undyed fleece colour is probably more accurate for the 10th or 11th century but I didn’t know that when I made it.

I suppose the only circa 13th century event we’ll end up with this year is Lanark, but it does get a little dull wearing the same clothing year after year, although we don’t wear it enough to wear them out.
